Bible Study Notes in Psalms- Chapter 139

Psalm 139


-Theme: The omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient characteristics of God. Our greatest good is to know God and be known by Him. Repentance.

-Historical Insight: This is a Psalm for the choir director from the Holy Spirit given to David.

-*Application* This chapter has so many influential and impactful themes and thoughts for us to meditate on. These are well-known emphasizes and doctrines of Scripture that David elaborates on for us to understand our Creator better. The LORD’s foreknowledge, detail, and power is soooo far beyond us. Yet, He is with us no matter where we go or what we do. There is no darkness in our God. He is the Illuminator! We, as His creation, are skillfully, fearfully, and wonderfully made in His image (Psalm 139:13-16, Genesis 1:27). His thoughts towards us are precious and vast, outnumbering the sands on the seashore (Psalm 139:17-18). What an incredible thought and comfort from our Maker. What He does ask from us is to search our restless hearts and anxious thoughts and, as a result, conform to His ideal (Romans 8:28-30, 1 Peter 5:6-7). This necessarily involves repentance and transformation, which can only come through the drawing of His Holy Spirit (Romans 12:1-2, 2 Peter 3:9, Titus 3:5).


Verses to Memorize: Psalm 139:1, 4, 14-16, 23-24
