Scariest passage in the Bible?

“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 upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.” – Psalm 139:1-6

Do you remember doing something wrong growing up, and fearing that your mom or dad would find out?

In Psalm 139, David talks about how God knows us.  He knows us intimitely.  We cannot think, say, or do anything that God does not know before we do.

As a Christian, I try to lead a moral and righteous life.  I know that I fail.  I have been forgiven by Grace, saved by Faith, but I still mess up.  I say the wrong things.  I hurt others with my quick temper and sharp tongue.  I despise myself for it, but it still happens.  God knows before I do it, yet he still forgives me.

David pleads with God to “search me and know my heart”, and asks God to lead him in the correct manner.  I ask that same thing each day, and would encourage you to do the same.
