He Will Never Leave us to Despair in Loneliness

O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. (Psalm 139:1-2)
Did you know your thoughts are so precious to the Lord, that He reads each one? For some people, that may be unsettling. However, we have no reason to fret because of this.
We get to take comfort in the fact that there is Someone whom we can never hide from, because it means He will never leave us to despair in loneliness.
God loves and knows you so deeply, He has even memorized when you rise and fall!
If you’ve ever fought with your mind and the thoughts that relentlessly scramble in and out, the Lord understands. The enemy of our soul, the devil, works tirelessly to influence our thinking and attack our minds. This means we need to stay alert and put on the helmet of salvation daily in order to combat it.
Whenever a distracting or hurting thought comes into your mind, remember who you are and Who you belong to.
You are a child of God, whose salvation has been secured by the cross! No amount of attacks from the enemy can ever change that binding truth. 
I pray you are blessed by this devotion. Never forget who you belong to and when the enemy of your soul reminds you of your mistakes. Overcome him. Fight his tactics with truth. Faith comes by hearing. Speak God’s word out loud. God is the only constant upon whom you can depend. Trust Him
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!

He Knows Us

O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. (Psalm 139:1-2) 
Did God know about me as I drove at night on a 100-mile journey to my village? Given the condition I was in, the answer was not simple. My temperature ran high and my head ached. I prayed, “Lord, I know you are with me, but I’m in pain!” 
Tired and weak, I parked by the road near a small village. Ten minutes later, I heard a voice. “Hello! Do you need any help?” It was a man with his companions from the community. Their presence felt good. When they told me the name of their village, Naa mi n’yala (meaning, “The King knows about me!”), I was amazed. I had passed this community dozens of times without stopping. This time, the Lord used its name to remind me that, indeed, He, the King, was with me while I was alone on that road in my ailing condition. Encouraged, I pressed on toward the nearest clinic. 
God knows us thoroughly as we go about our everyday chores, at different locations and situations, no matter our condition (Psalm 139:1–4, 7–12). He does not abandon us or forget us; nor is He so busy that He neglects us. Even when we are in trouble or in difficult circumstances—“darkness” and “night” (vv. 11–12)—we are not hidden from His presence. This truth gives us such hope and assurance that we can praise the Lord who has carefully created us and leads us through life (v. 14). 
Thank You, Lord, that You always know where I am and how I am doing. You know me inside and out. I’m thankful I can count on You to care. Amen. 
When I read this devotion it blessed me so much! No matter what your facing today, remember this, no matter where we are, God knows about us. He sees you. 
Have a beautiful day in The Lord!
