The Lord Knows Us Inside Out

"O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive
my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
You are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue You know it
completely, O Lord.
You hem me in- behind and before;
You have laid Your hand before me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from You when I
was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths
of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in
Your book before one of them came to be."

Psalm 139: 1-6, 13-16

The Lord knows us inside out. He knows everything about us in a way that we ourselves will never know. He knows everything that we do from sunrise to sunset and even when we are asleep. He knows every thought that we have- good, bad, sublime and rubbish. He knows all our emotions and feelings, our doubts and fears, each function of our body. He knows the number of days that we will live on earth, for that has been ordained the moment we were born. He knows us and calls us by our name. There is nothing we can hide from Him. Even our darkest secret is as visible as the naked sun to Him. And He loves us so much as a heavenly Father does to His child. He guides us every step that we make and will never leave us nor forsake us. His love was such that He gave His only begotten Son to die in our place at Calvary. The punishment that should have been ours was thrown at Him and by His wounds we are all healed of all our spiritual and physical sicknesses.

Nice song, Mel. God is really great that's why He gave His only begotten Son to save us. Nice post too.

Thanks for always reminding us how great is our Lord. God bless you and your family!

Hi Rossel,
These particular verses just point out that God knows everything about us and we can never hide anything from Him. In the end, He will judge us for everything that we have done while alive. Glad you appreciated the song video. It's one of my favorite worship songs. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

As always kuya Mel, you have hit the mark. There is nothing we could hide from God even the hidden desires we have deep within...

This post reminds me to be always aware of what I am doing and thinking everyday. MAking sure that it's according to His teachings as much as possible...

Thanks for the post and pls keep on posting kuya Mel..

Hi Kathy,
Yun na nga. We have to be very careful of what we think, what we say or what we do since the Lord sees them all. It's almost like we are monitored by an all seeing tracking device. Knowing this, magiingat na tayo sa lahat nang ating gagawin. Kaya nga, at the end of the day, we should cleanse ourselves of all filth and sins by confessing to the Lord before we go to sleep. I must admit, I'm having a hard time blogging because of my limited time in our computer and because of my many illnesses that bothers me so much not adding the many chores I have to do for my kids. But I'm not complaining because the Lord sustains me in everything by His amazing grace. Thanks for your visit and comforting comments. God bless you all always.

Wonderful words you shared today Sir Mel. I know God is inside me and out kaya may takot pang natitira sa sarili ko every time gumagawa ako ng desisyon na alam kong pagsisisihan ko balang araw. Thnaks for sharing this wonderful post Sir Mel. Ingat!

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Shy,
Hindi dapat mawala sa atin yung reverential fear of the Lord, para bang yung takot natin sa sarili nating ama kapag gumagawa tayo nang masama lalo pa't hindi niya alam ito. Lalo pa sa ating Amang nasa langit na nakababatid nang lahat lahat tungkol sa atin. We don't want to displease the Lord. I pray for God's blessings and grace to abound to you and your family this year and that you will see the light of God's love for you. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

God loves us more than anyone...
I agree to than completely...
Why fear...when the savior is with us..

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Priya,
I agree with you my young friend. Nobody knows us better than the Lord, more than what we will ever know about ourselves. We just have to trust in His unfailing love for us. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you always my young friend.

kathy said...

Kuya Mel, sana po you will be healed kung anuman ang dinaramdam mo ngayon... I will say a prayer for you at sana that will help to keep you healthy and keep you on posting inspirational posts...

Hi Kathy,
Sanay na ako, nothing's new. I have disregarded whatever I feel in my body a long time ago. I just use God's leading in keeping myself alive until now. Sa totoo lang, it is just by the grace of God that I am still alive and doing what I must do for my children and for the readers of my blogs- the only remaining ministries left to me. Hindi naman sa matigas lang ang ulo ko pero ang pera namin ay eksakto lang para sa panggastos namin, no more no less. Tini take ko naman regularly yung mga maintenance medicines ko at anu pa mang medicines na kailangan ko. Hindi nga lang ako nagpapatingin sa doctor dahil masa shock lang sila at maaapektuhan ang katawan ko. To set the records straight, 3 years ago bago umalis ang misis ko papuntang States ay naka schedule na ako for 3 major operations- acute hernia and prostate gland,severe scoliosis of my lower back and overgrowth of thyroid gland. Kaya lang 80,000 pesos lang ang coverage nang insurance ni misis sa akin at nagastos na ang 40,000 noon sa laboratory at other medical check ups nuon. My wife has to surrender her medicard so she can resign and leave for the States. Until then I have never seen a doctor again and I am just being kept alive by the grace of God. Nagpapasalamat ako sa pagaalala mo at sa concern and prayers mo para sa akin. I really appreciate that and I hold you in the highest esteem. Salamat ulit sa dalaw and words of comfort. God bless you all always.
