Scripture: Psalm 139:1-6 (NKJV, MSG)
Psalm 139:1-6 says, “GOD, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand. I’m an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; I’m never out of your sight. You know everything I’m going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you’re there, then up ahead and you’re there, too—your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful—I can’t take it all in!” The Lord searches us and knows us. He hedges us behind and before and puts His Hand on us so that we may know Him for how mighty and powerful He really is. The Message version of the Bible says in verse 6, “This is too much, too wonderful—I can’t take it all in!” His wisdom is high, we cannot take it all in – it is simply too much. God shows Himself as too much throughout Scripture. He is too much as a Provider, He is too much at all different moments. There is a pattern of how ‘too much’ begins to come at a certain time. As we come to understand that pattern, then we can set ourselves in faith to walk it out.
