Objective

To be confidant in God's love for us, and to realize God is sovereign over everything.

Summary

Psalm 139 is a personal prayer from the psalmist, in this case David. It takes us through his
understanding that God is with him always, and has been in control of every aspect of his life
since the very beginning.

Through this revelation David is taken to a place of repentance of how he is feeling towards his
enemies, and asking God to clear his heart of any evil within in himself. This Psalm is yet another
great example of how one can pray, and that God is sovereign and the creator over all.
