Psalm 139:5 Father’s Blessing #143
What is not to love about Psalm 139? This chapter encompasses the Lord’s knowledge and love towards all of his children, including you! Psalm 139:5 says, “You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me, to spare me from the harm of my past. With your hand of love upon my life, you impart a Father’s blessing to me.”
Just as this verse says, God has already gone into your future to prepare the way for you. Not only that, but he has completely encircled the days before you and the days ahead of you. It’s like you are in a God sandwich where he is protecting you on both sides. Silly, I know, but his protection really does cover every area of your life.
God has a Father’s blessing for you and his hand of love is all over your life. He only has good thoughts towards you, so much so that he never punishes you for your past, but he protects you from all harm. He doesn’t judge you based on your sin, but he forgives you. Does this truth encourage you?
No matter what you are facing today and how tired you are of waiting, trust that the Lord knows what he is doing. He has already prepared the way. You might not understand his ways, but don’t let your wait keep you from believing that God’s goodness is upon your life. God has good plans in store for you so seek his kindness while you wait on him!
