What Does Psalm 139:16 Mean?

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

Psalm 139:16(NLT)

Verse Thoughts

We are fearfully and wonderfully made for we are the work of the Father’s hand. What a comfort and joy to know that although we do not see the Lord He not only sees us but knows us intimately and has each of one us in His thoughts constantly. He fashioned and formed us – He selected our parentage and scheduled every day of our lives. Each one of us can say with certainty: Your eyes saw me in my mother’s womb, before my body was even formed and You have scheduled every one of my days – everything about me is written in Your book and planned before I was even born.

There is nothing for us to fear – nothing to concern our hearts, for whether we ‘feel’ it or not His word is true. We are the children of the omniscient, omnipotent God of the universe. He has searched our hearts and He knows us, He knows our every move and each fleeting thought that passes through our hearts, He knows whether we are waking or sleeping and understands our inner thoughts and the desires of our hearts.

He is before us and He is behind us. He is within us and He dwells in the inner recesses of our heart. He is our guard and He is our guide and wherever we go and no matter whatever happens to us – He is there to lead and to guide to comfort and to succour.

When we know what we believe and believe what we know we should have no fear for He is with us – His rod and His staff are our comfort for he knows and cares for You and for me with a blessed intimacy.

My Prayer

Thank You Father that You saw me before I was born. Thank You that every day of my life was recorded in Your book and every moment of my life is laid out before You– praise the Lord O my soul and all that is within me praise His holy name. AMEN.
