30 DoW: Psalm 139

Psalm 139
11
If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,"

12
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.

13
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.

14
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

15
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

16
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

18
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.

attribute & response:
Maker. The God who made the very universe, every star, planet, nebula, also made me, a tiny, finite creature, even sinful and rebellious to Him. I am thankful and ponder "why" all at the same time. But He is not finite. He is infinite, and He knew the plans He had for me even before my body was formed—plans to call me out of rebellion and to Himself in order that my life would be used for His glory. I know how unworthy of this I am, and I thank Him for His mercy.
