In my reading this week I felt directed to read in Psalm 139. I had a light bulb moment in HIM!!
O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.
3 You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
5 You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it.
Before I ever said or did anything that I was not suppose to do or I neglected to do what I was suppose to do and before any sin I committed HE ALREADY KNEW IT!! HE CHOSE ME ANYWAY!! Not only did He choose me but He locked and secured the gate behind me just like we do our prize horse. He knew I would try to stray and go check out the grass down the road. He knew I would kick and throw fits because I thought I was trapped when in reality I was being protected... Have you ever seen a horse after he tried to kick the stall door behind? Bloody and all banged up because he thought he knew best? Well we all go through that. The good news is He knew we would and He already had the healing balm we needed ready for us.
61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,
He sent Jesus Christ to heal our broken hearts and wounds that we caused and others caused.
Today I ask you to take some time and read Psalm 139. Then you Saddle Up and Ride on. Leave the past behind you and know that He knows what you need today and tomorrow and He has you safely locked in.
