Friday 11th March

Please read Psalm 139…

Today may be one of routine but alternatively may be one of unexpected delights or uncertainties.  In whatever circumstance we find ourselves, God knows and God cares.

Psalm 139 starts with a statement, “O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.”   The Psalmist then adds a series of assertions, all of which confirm God’s intimate knowledge and love for us and that He will guide and protect whatever our life’s journey holds.  The Psalm ends by turning the initial statement of fact into a willing invitation – an appropriate prayer of response for us today:

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
