Psalm 139

Some quick sermon notes from a few months ago:

In Psalm 139 David is praising God for the omni-aspects of his nature:
  • Omnipresent
  • Omnipotent
  • Omniscient
David acknowledges that he is unable to hide (in a negative sense), yet at the same time the positive aspect remains that he is never away from God's presence.

All of human life, even that of the unborn, is a miracle. In Psalm 139 David, contemplating the fetus in the womb, responds by giving thanks to God.

  1. Tragically, that has been either twisted out of context or completely ignored by far too many for far too long. For if our Heavenly Father truly is all-powerful, then absolutely nothing could ever happen without Him allowing it to, and if He is truly all-knowing, then He would know all about everything long before it came to be. Furthermore, He would actually be there whenever something happened if He is truly always-present--not just up in His Kingdom of Heaven watching. There would be no conditions, such as being too holy to be in the presence of sin, and it would not matter if someone had already accepted His only begotten Son of being their own personal Lord and Savior or not. For being always-present would mean that He has always been with each and every one of us, on an individual basis and without exception, all of the time!
