Thou knowest my downsitting and
mine uprising, thou understandest
my thought afar off.
Psalm 139:2
37:14-40:8; Psalm 37:21-33
Read: Psalm 139:1-3
1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of
David. O LORD, thou hast searched
me, and known me.
2 Thou knowest my downsitting and
mine uprising, thou understandest
my thought afar off.
3 Thou compassest my path and my
lying down, and art acquainted with
all my ways.
As a child of God, the fact that God
knows all about you should give you
assurance and confidence, especially
in the time of crises. While God sees
and knows in detail what is going on
around and inside of you, the devil
does not have such ability. The
Psalmist says:
“Thou knowest my downsitting and
mine uprising, thou understandest
my thought afar off.”
Psalm 139:2
God knows all that you are passing
through now and He knows the
history of your life. Sometimes, what
you consider to be the origin of your
problem is not. There was this young
boy whose father had stolen the
Raleigh bicycle of another man
before he was born. So painful was
this experience to the man who lost
his bicycle that he placed a curse on
the generations of the person that
stole his bicycle. The man who stole
the bicycle had died and his young
boy had gone to school and
successfully completed his national
youth service program. However, the
young man just discovered that
anytime he ate rice, it turned out to
be a serious life threatening meal for
him. He was completely oblivious of
the evil his father had committed and
the curse that was placed on his
generations, that they would die
eating rice. The all-knowing God
however revealed this to His servant,
who counselled the young man to
find the exact amount the bicycle
cost and give it to the owner of the
bicycle. This he did and his
predicament stopped.
Another thing about this attribute of
God in relation to how we comport
ourselves is that we should not be
deluded into thinking that we can
cover up any misdeed. Remember
David smartly got his evil deed with
Bathsheba kept from being known to
everybody. He thought he could cover
up his act of adultery with Bathsheba
and the subsequent murder of her
husband, but he was foolish not to
consider that God saw him. God sees
all you are doing. Beyond that, He
knows every thought you are
thinking, even while the thought is
still far away from you (Psalm 139:2).
He knows it. Won’t you rather fear
this God and rightly comport
yourself? Are you a brother, minister
or pastor, indulging in fornication or
adultery with your members? He sees
you, and except you repent, you will
pay dearly for it. Repent today, and
you shall obtain mercy, and it shall
be well with you.
Action Point:
Pray that the all-seeing and all-
knowing God will reveal to you any
pending restitution you ought to
make. Prayerfully go ahead and
perform it.
