Riding the Morning Winds

“Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” Psalm 139:7-10 KJV

Psalm 139 is one of the most beautiful psalms in the Bible and is filled with so much imagery that are self-explanatory that I cannot add to or explain it. It’s one of my most favourite psalms, if not the most favourite psalm of mine. The knowledge that God is always there, His omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience are comforting thoughts. The fact that He knows us better than we know ourselves is scary, but also it is also comforting since He can reveal to us who we really are despite the sea of lies the devil tries to drown us in. The psalm even speaks about us finding ourselves in the bottom of this ocean yet still in the presence of God. It speaks of the unrelenting love of a God who never gives up on His creation to see him or her living right and living close to Him. It reveals the Father’s heart.

Tom Fetke composed a song based on Psalm 139 which I would like to share with you. I hope that you will be blessed by it.

God bless!
