Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 139 – 141
Verse of the Day: Psalm 139:1 – “O Jehovah, thou hast searched me, and known me.”
This song that David wrote talks about three attributes of God – not as abstract thoughts, but as active qualities. An attribute of God is something that describes His nature, character, or shows His characteristics.
In verses 1 – 6, David speaks of God’s Omniscience. This means that He has perfect knowledge of all things both actual and potential. In verses 7 – 12, the sweet singer of Israel describes God’s Omnipresence. This characteristic shows God as being everywhere in Creation at the same time and in all of His fullness. Finally, we see His Omnipotence, or the ability to do everything in harmony with His nature and perfection.
Prayer: What a glorious God You are. You are beyond description. You are so aware of everything about me, and still care for me. Guide me today by Your hand. Amen.
