Lord, you have scrutinized me And your knowledge of me Is Greater then I could possibly Imagine. You know my every move before I make it, And every place I go before I’m there. Your spirit can be sensed In every kind of atmosphere, Showing me the path through the world of darkness When I am lost; as you do not fear the unknown Like me But the unknown fears you. Your arms are always open to me, You find me when I hide And save me from my fears. Lord, your mighty power has placed me on Earth. With how you have planned my life You show your love for me.
The choices I make are to live up To your expectations, To show my love for you. I pity the ones that stray from you, The ones that criticize my trust and belief, The trust and belief I have for You and your ways. God, test me as you please My heart is true to you Make clear the path to enlightenment And everlasting love. Themes and explanation God knows you more then anybody, even more then you know yourself. God is creator of all; therefore he sees all and knows all. God is everywhere; you can’t hide from IM in a world he created.
He can see you in the darkness and is willing to help the lost, troubled and misguided; no matter where you are from and no matter who you are. God Is our creator, the Lord has given us everything we know of; he has made us were made and where we came from so he does not discriminate. Characteristics of God God is all knowing, as he created everything with intentions for things to ultimately be the way things are. God is a leader, strong and caring; as he is not afraid of the dark, to lead and show others the true way.
Attitude towards God The perspective of this Psalm towards God is very intimate and close. It gives off very positive images towards God’s way of life as well. Relations with the Author I don’t really relate to this poem as personally as the author did, as I am not a very religious person so God doesn’t play a huge role in my life as it would for some others to be honest. I’m very indifferent towards God. The Psalm tells me that God’s feelings towards me are that of understanding and love. God is always there for the lost individuals in crisis
Psalm 139 doesn’t change how I view myself but it does give me more of a perspective or understanding towards all those that believe the in the Lord. (As it is written that the lord is always there no matter where I am; none discriminating. I believe that psalm should effect how we treat others, because this piece of writing explains one’s belief and trust in God; we should respect everybody’s view and take on religion and life, particularly in a world, where religion leads many people to do drastic things.
