“Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.” Psalm 139:5-6
In this Psalm David is expressing the fact that the Lord is always with him. No matter where he goes, the Lord is behind him and before him with His hand of blessing upon his head. It is almost more than he can understand.
Like David we can be assured that the Lord is there for us every hour of every day. He walks with us and directs our steps. Nothing can come near to us that is not His will. How comforting this is as we walk life’s pathway.
Prayer: Jesus I give this day into your hand. Walk with me and guide me in the right path, and make me a blessing to others.
