“The Lord will work out His plans for my life – for Your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for You made me.”
Psalm 139 is probably one of the most beautiful Psalms of David. It talks about the intimacy and the detail in which our Heavenly Father knows us, because He created us. It talks about our lives been in His hand, about how God’s thoughts for us and about us, outnumber the grains of sand on the seashores. It tells us that there is nowhere we can go where God will not be walking by our side. YET, above all these wonderful words and promises, as if David was almost planning a great introduction for Psalm 139, we read this verse found in Psalm 138:8.
It is almost like the foundation, preparing you to be taken away, in the intimacy of God’s word, and His plan and purpose for you and your life. See when you know that God is with you, when you know how close He is through the hardest and darkest of times in your life, your ability to see yourself how God created you increases, because you know who you are in Him. You can appreciate His love more. You can understand how much thought God put in to making you because you are secure that God will work out His plans for your life.
Friends, know that God is already working out His plans for your life. He won’t abandon you, when you feel alone. When you know this, then you will appreciate how God has made you, how much you are loved and how precious you are to Him. Know the foundation, and the details will follow.
