Loneliness, misunderstanding; is there anybody here today who feels totally misunderstood?

Don’t just hear words. Let it sink in a minute. You can let it beat you down as you look at your circumstance, or you can look up now and realize you are in the presence of a King.

What better company could you have? You may say, “Oh, I’ve heard that before.” Yes, that’s right, and if you have a pernicious heart of unbelief, it will go right past you; but if you hear the Word of the Lord today, Psalm 139 says, “O LORD, Thou…knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path.” God draws a circle around you.

 I don’t want to preach just words to a crowd today; I want God’s Word to reach into the heart of someone who has heard that verse a hundred times who never really understood or really  believed that God was speaking over the centuries to you. God draws a circle around you.

How many have heard the Word when it says, “We are a peculiar people”? (1 Peter 2:9) Do you know how you have to translate that Greek word? You put a dot on a piece of paper and draw a circle around it. That is about the only way you can really translate that word:

we are in focus. God, like a spotlight, “compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways….” This is your promise, “If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.  If I say, Surely the darkness will cover me; even the night will be light about me; for the day and the night are alike to thee.” (Psalm 139:3-12) “Lift up now thine eyes…from the place where thou art.”
