Not as Strangers

O LORD, you have searched me and known me. (Psalm 139.1)

We come to God, not as strangers, but as intimate friends. We have nothing to hide, as nothing can be hidden from our Creator, Who has searched us and known us from the very beginning. God not only knows us at our very best and our very worst. God knows where, how, and why we conceal pieces of ourselves from others. Only with God can we fully bare our souls and sort through our secrets without fear of ridicule or shame. We meet God in blunt candor and that is the truth that sets us free.

This is the first in a month-long series of posts, "Sitting with Scripture," in which we'll look at Psalm 139 verse-by-verse, taking time to sit with each scripture and contemplate what it means to us personally. If meditating on this verse inspires thoughts you'd like to share, please comment. Each of us is filled with undiscovered treasure that we find when we pause for a moment to listen to God's Word.
