The "What David Knew" series is officially over, but I wanted to share just one follow-up post. As I was reviewing the text of Psalm 139:13-18 from week to week while writing this series, what became clear to me was that what David knew could be summed up this way: David knew God’s love.
For those of you have read the entire series, I hope that’s what you came away knowing — or being reminded of — too. God really loves you. More than you can imagine. Just as He spoke to David, He is speaking to you:
I made all the delicate, inner parts of your body
and knit you together in your mother’s womb.
Aren’t you thankful I made you so wonderfully complex?
My workmanship is marvelous—you can see it.
I watched you as you were being formed in utter seclusion,
as you were woven together in the dark of the womb.
I saw you before you were born.
Every day of your life was recorded in my book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are my thoughts about you, my child.
They cannot be numbered!
You can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when you wake up,
I am still with you!
