The Greatest Relationship


 

Today’s Reading:

Psalm 139:1- 6, 13-18 (1-2)

“O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.”

(vv.1-2)

 

Have you ever felt like someone was avoiding you? They don't pick up the phone when you call or when they see you coming they turn and run the other way. There can be different reasons for this. Perhaps you talk too much and they don't want to be trapped into having a long conversation with you.


Maybe you're always asking something of them and they don't want to be trapped into doing something for you. It could be because they know you're not happy with them and they want to avoid conflict. Or perhaps the last time you talked with them you were trying to confront them about some things and they didn't like it so now they avoid you.


The greatest relationship you will ever have is with God. Why? Because even though our lives may be filled with mountain peaks and valleys, God is faithful to be with us every step of the way. The reason is because God has eternal qualities that will last longer than our life here on Earth. God has three qualities that can make a relationship with Him the best.


a) God is All-Knowing (vv.1-6) because: i) God has Googled me (v.1); ii) He knows my ways (vv.2-4); iii) He knows me relationally (vv.5-6).


b) God is All-Present (vv.7-12): Wherever we go, God is there. Whether you’re high or low, up or down, strong or struggling, the Lord is with you (Hebrews 13:5). If you’re walking with the Lord, this is comforting. If you’re running from Him, it should be convicting.


c) God is All-Powerful (vv.13-18)


A relationship with this kind of Person leaves me and you with a choice. One can either choose to hate this Person or one can choose to engage this Person.


The concluding verses of this section respond to the first three sections of the psalm. God’s knowledge, His presence, and His power will cause us to rejoice. God’s attributes are not separable qualities that can be considered by themselves. In discussing each attribute of God, we are simply looking at the same loving care for us from a different angle. He uses His power, His presence, His knowledge, and all His other attributes to provide his blessings, which are too numerous to count. “To awake in the presence of God” (verse 18) may well look beyond God’s day-to-day preservation of our lives to the resurrection in His presence.
