Psalm 139

AN AFFECTIONATE GOD FOR ANXIOUS TIMES 

In the past 2+ years has there been any anxiousness build up in your heart? Do you find yourself functioning with this low agitation behind everything you do? Today we look at Psalm 139 and see how God wants to affectionally care for you. In this deeply personal Psalm, the Psalmist reflects on the gentle “hand of God” on his life and sees that He is the only one who can calm him, guide him and hold him fast in the midst of turbulent times. Let’s be open to “the hand of God” today as we allow His Spirit and Word to come alive in our life.
