In Relationship

Re: Verse reading–1 Samuel 16:1-7; Psalm 139 (day four)  If we have a relationship with someone, we have shared experience, we have inside knowledge of how they think or how they will behave.  Psalm 139 describes the intimate relationship we have we our Sovereign, Almighty God.  He knows our thoughts even before we think them…He is present before we arrive…He knows our heart, even when we are confused or misguided.  God is so intimately aware of everything about us because He is our Creator.  He has designed us to be in relationship with Him.  When God looked at David’s heart as a boy, He saw a heart after His own heart.  He could see David’s thoughts and actions before David ever considered them.  What does God see when He looks at our hearts?  Does He see faithfulness?  Does He see obedience?  Does He see reverence? Or does He see pride…selfishness…greed…hatred?  “Where can we hide from your Spirit?  Lead us in the everlasting way!”
