If you would turn in revivals once again to Psalm 139 Psalm 139 and will be reading this text throughout the message instead of reading it all in its entirety. Again, I want to begin tonight with a brief introduction. AW toes are set in the 1950s. What comes in our minds home. I think about God is the most important thing about us.

For this reason, the gravest question before the church is always God himself and the most important fact about any man is not what he had a given time may say or do but what he in his deep heart concedes God to be, and why is that poser goes on to say, we tend by a secret law, the soul to move toward our mental image of God.

This is true not only of the individual Christian but of the company of Christians that composes the church as a child and maybe even as an adult. Have you ever played the game word association somebody says a word and you're supposed to respond with the first word that pops in your mind what comes in your mind when you personalize these three words Jehovah and me. What comes in your mind when you personalize these three words Jehovah and may the second question, what influences your response to that question. What influences your response to Jehovah and may I think the answer is this your personal understanding of Jehovah and your knowledge of yourself.

If you have a deeper understanding of Jehovah than that's going to mean much more to a person who has a shallow understanding. If you're honest with yourself versus a person who excuses things in him or herself. That's can impact as well. Your your reaction of those three words, the title of the messages Jehovah and me, and Psalm 139 is a wonderful worship song that is filled with awe and adoration as we look at this prayer of David were going to consider for things from a personal perspective of a believer the end how challenge and who may be here tonight outside of Christ, but were to look at this through the eyes of a Christian through the eyes of a believer and let me put you at ease .3, four and five will not take up any more time than one if I didn't say that I'm done with .1.

I think you probably call out for breakfast, but I assure you, what were going to consider tonight is number one Jehovah's perception of a is pervasive versus 124.

Secondly, Jehovah's provenance from a is personal versus 5 to 12 Jehovah's plan for me is precise versus 13 to 18 and finally Jehovah's purpose for me is perseverance in the faith verses 19 through 24. First all Jehovah's perception of May is pervasive versus 1 to 4 say why would you use the words perception and pervasive while perception is the way you think about or understand someone or something the way you think about or understand someone or something. The word pervasive is a good word. It means existing and are spreading to every part of something so when we put those together Jehovah's perception of me is pervasive. We are saying Jehovah knows every minute detail of us. He knows every minute detail of us. Verse one essay states for the chief musician Psalm of David O Lord you have searched me and known me. The first three words, O Lord, you notice that that is in capital letters hello RD, meaning Jehovah and that's the English word for Yahweh. The personal name for God, who is self existent eternal, unchanging in his perfections as the creator and sustainer of all that exists, and beloved your progressive understanding of Jehovah will impact your response to the statement, O Lord, you have searched me and known me as we grow in the grace and knowledge of God. Just reading old Lord I am that I am you have searched me and known me. At the conclusion of his deeper revelation of himself to Job the most righteous man of his day humbly replied this, he said, I have heard of you by the hearing of the year, but now my eye sees you the results. He said therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. Job was reduced to such utter humility before this greater understanding of God that the ashes from which he complained and contended his innocence became the ashes from which he confessed his sinfulness is most righteous man of his day and Eddie had room for growth in his contrast of hearing and saying.

I've heard of you, but now I see you. I've seen you that simply showing his previous understanding of God was sadly lacking in beloved after got.got done telling Joe more of himself. The realization of who God was changed everything about his Outlook. If you read the final chapters of Joe, here's the problem. Our fast Lane culture fights against the command be still and know that I am God with the answer. You and I have to purpose to be lifelong theologians that might sound like a worthy, you'd never used with yourself, but the word theology comes from two Greek words that combine meaning the study of God and we all had to be theologians, students of who God is. Notice verse one day he says in verse one, a for the chief musician Psalm of David.

A Lord you searched me and known me, you searched me and known me.

The second part of that verse. The word search may Spurgeon is very quick to point out that without effort God who is omniscient knows us as thoroughly as if he had examined us minute and had pride in the innermost corners of our being. God knows us. He can read us does. We dislike the book Jeremiah wrote of the great, mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts. He said you are great in counsel and mighty and work for your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. God has searched me, God is searched you and then he says at the end of that verse. Not only is he search me, but God is known me in his omniscience, God knows all individuals, but the most vital question than anyone could ever ask is this, does God know me intimately in salvation. Jesus warns about this in Matthew 721 to 23 and I'm sure all of you have read this. He said not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father in heaven, and many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name cast out demons in your name, and done many wonders in your name and then I will declare to them, I never knew you depart from me, you who practice lawlessness. The problem was these people reliant on religious works instead of an intimate relationship with Christ to save and that's what Jesus is referring to when he says I never knew you I was sharing with my class. Sunday school class this morning and quickly repeat that I know the girls in my senior Bible class in school. There are three I should but I said to them, I know you and I love you is girls who I'm investing my life and time his life.

When I invest my time in you on the Vanessa in my life and I don't want to shake you two girls but I don't love you the way I do.

That girl that girl had to be have to be Trinity. My granddaughter understandably I don't love Trinity, the wagon level wife why there is no other relationship on earth is intimate is a man with his wife. The two shall become one. That is the type of intimate knowledge that God has of those given to Christ before the foundation of the world. What we call the bride of Christ. So this intimate knowledge and salvation. Ephesians 1426 just as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and without blame before him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace by which he is made us accepted in the beloved.

If you're Christian tonight thank God he knows you intimately. But what about sent a sanctification sanctification God's intimate knowledge of us orchestrates everything that comes in our lives and not to give us tremendous pace. Romans 828 to 30 you memorized to be sure we believers know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to his purpose and for whom he foreknew know ahead of time and again it's not.

It is not just I had knowledge. God knows all things, past, present, future. That are and that could be.

So he knew us intimately. He foreknew us and those he predestined to be conformed to the image of son why that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he predestined, these he also call me call VCL.

These he also justified and whom he justified, these he also glorified hiking have great confidence that when something comes into my life, if for no other reason it's there to sanctify me as a believer and I have to see the glass half full from that respect, God is using this severe mercy or this difficulty to polish, to better reflect the Lord Jesus Christ.

Notice verses two through four.

They color God's pervasive knowledge of us in the day-to-day affairs of life verse two. You know my sitting down in my rising up US understand my thought afar off.

You comprehend my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. There's not a word on my tongue, but behold, the Lord, you know it altogether.

Again, David uses contrasting pairs to express the totality of the pervasiveness of God's understanding. Notice first to the first part you know my sitting down in my rising up contrast again. JI Packer say says that this verse refers to my most common and casual acts. My most needful and necessary moments and movements all are known by God intimately what application can we make in these verses will ask the question what impact should understanding that God's knowledge of us is pervasive. What what impact should that happen in your life. Think about, there's nothing to be hidden thought, word, or deed from God what impact should understanding that God's knowledge of us is pervasive have on your daily life and then this are you guilty of trying to carve compartmentalize your faith and certain areas of my life that God cares about here is that he doesn't know there is no such thing as: compartmentalizing our faith. I use this illustration before I better be the same as a Bible teacher as a soccer coach. You can't compartmentalize no act like some ACC coach with some spiritual salt, pepper, no word be what we should be before God at all times and all places. We don't want to compartmentalize our faith look at the second part of verse two he knows my thoughts David right you understand my thought afar off. Spurgeon states that this speaks of God's omniscience notices he says even before it's my own.

My thought is foreknown and comprehended by the I don't know about you but that's mind-boggling even before it's my own. My thought is foreknown and comprehended by the John Owen said this over and quote he sees the inside of all and what men are.

They that they are to sees not as we see, but ponders the hidden man of the heart, all-knowing God by searching I looked past my habits to my heart were weaknesses and strengths lie bear before thy piercing holy stair was sovereign days you load all sham and know me as I truly am. Help me to captivate each thought that loyal, loving, I might be faithful and true to Christ alone, exalting him on my heart's throne make this my passion and my play Christ be all in all. Application of verse two again you cultivate thoughts. It truly honor God by immediately immediately housecleaning your heart of anything that's unworthy of him. When a wrong thought goes through your mind. Deal with it then deal with it that notice first three. David says he knows my ways. You comprehend my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my way. The bottom line is this my lifestyle is known by God. The places that I go the things that I do and David again if you'll notice uses contrast of rest and activity to show the thoroughness of God's knowledge of us, the pervasiveness of his knowledge of us. Psalm one 1910 and 11 with my whole heart I've sought you all let me not wonder commandments your word. If I hid in my heart that I might not sin against you. Those who fear you will be glad when they see me because I'd hoped in your work and beloved.

Here's the point.

The content of our heart will be evidenced by the consistency of our habits. The content of our heart will be evidenced by the consistency of our habits. You can fake it. Every now and then but you can't fake it. There some religious people that can walk the walk for a while, but the reality is the content of our heart will be evidenced by the consistency of our habits.

I want teenagers I have wanted teenagers to learn the word of God in their head to love the word of God in their hat heart to live, the word of God and their habits, and if you learned in your head and love it in your heart and leave.

Live it in your habits, you will leave it automatically in your history is just what people see. It's the pattern of your life and it goes back to what I said earlier, the content of your heart will be evidenced made known by the consistency of your habits, what application would would give her verse three.

Do you delight in the word of God enough to make its principal shall roadmap for each day and that requires a quiet time that requires you getting up early enough to get another word you delight in the word of God enough to make its principal shall roadmap for each day brought down to verse four. He not only knows my ways. He knows my my words.

He says for.

There's not a word, not a single word on my tongue, behold, the Lord, you know it altogether. Jesus said, a good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things and then he says these sobering words I say to you that every idle word mentioned may speak they will give an account of it in the day of judgment. Everyone, for by your words you will be justified by your words you will be condemned. Just as your content. The content of your heart. As is shown by the consistency of your habits, the content area to senses any of your habits is also evident.

This what you say and what you do, do they match up. He says every idle word Jesus said in that refers to lazy useless barren words that accomplish no good visions for 29 to 30. Let no corrupt and let me pause here. That word means rotten or worthless.

Let no rotten or worthless word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, building up that it may impart grace to the hearers and do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed in the day of redemption. We can we can grieve the Holy Spirit through words that do not honor and please God. Application of verse four. Do you strive to say only those things that glorify God and edify others by censoring impure, hurtful, untrue, prideful speech can I say that again you strive that's an intentional decision do you strive to say only those things that glorify God and edify others by censoring impure purple untrue or prideful speech that takes purpose that takes consistency that takes concern for the spiritual well fare of the other people we've looked at Jehovah's perception of me is pervasive. His understanding of May goes to the very core of who I am. Secondly, Jehovah's provenance for me is personal versus 5 to 12 Jehovah's provenance for me is personal and will look at this. First of all, in verse five. His protection notice what it says you've hedged me behind and before and laid your hand upon me. The words hedged may be behind and before means to be set bind up fortifying in clothes and the idea is that God is in total control to guard and to guide me as his possession is in total control to guard me and to guide me as his possession. When you think of hedged me in behind and before you can't help but think of Joe God's hedge of protection was and penetrated. The only way that Satan got through any that was by permission of God and then he was checked and allowed to go just as far as God would allow him to go. He says and laid your hand upon from the treasury of David Spurgeon compiled this book, I give you the following quote he says to make up anyone acceptable to thyself to rule me to lead me to uphold make to protect me to restore me and my growth in my walk in my failures and my affliction and my despair God, you have hedged me about in it. The contemplate again. Jehovah and may that's awesome.

It's an awesome thought and statement Psalm 19, three and four IN a minute I'll read that, but I want I want to first of all read verse six and word in this verse we see, we must guard against losing the wonder of it all. David's thought about these things. And in verse six he says such knowledge is too wonderful for me, it's high I cannot attain you know he is thinking about Jehovah and himself in this and he's he saying such knowledge is too wonderful.

It's high cannot attain it now. Psalm 19 three and four when I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have ordained, what is man that you are mindful of him in the Son of Man that you visited. Who am I that you are mindful of me that's what we had a design it should cause wonder and onus that he who names every star in the universe numbers at every hair on our head. It should cause wonder and us that he who names every star in the universe numbers. Every hair on our head. By definition, that I've used many times in teaching is this when it comes to the fear of God and I said from the start. This Psalm is a him of worship that is permeated by all and adoration. The fear of God is a reverent attitude of all, and adoration whereby the child of God guards and guides his thoughts, words indeed by the word of God for the glory of God over who God is, adoration over what God is done send his only beloved son to die in place of me that's awesome and should cause wonder application of verses 5 to 6. You guard against losing the wonder of God's amazing grace in your life and let me simply say this. I know would make the message too long so I didn't include this.

If you want to recapture the wonder of it all. I would recommend that II did this but I'm I didn't include in this message. Think about gallantly, could you pick one phrase said about Jesus or by Jesus in gallantly the grips you a phrase like the Son of Man has no nowhere to lay his head.

The Prince of heaven who dwelt with the glory of God from eternity past, says the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.

Think of Gethsemane when it said of Jesus Christ that he was so emotionally stressed, he bled as it were great drops of blood.

Think of Jesus in GABA for Isaiah 50 says he was marred more than the sons of men. Many were astonished at his appearance. People were used to seeing crucifixion were astonished and then lastly think of him on Golgotha and hear him say, my God, my God, why have you forsaken me it's doing those kinds of things that will rekindle all and hearts are growing cool you guard against losing the wonder of God's amazing grace in your life and then quickly verses seven through 12. We not only see his protection. In verse five and six but his presence for seven were can I go from your spirit, or where can I flee from your presence if I sent in the heaven, you are there. If I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there. If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me in your right hand shall hold me if I say, surely the darkness shall fall on me. Even the night shall be light about me. Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from you, but the night shines as the day the darkness and light are both alike to you, David, beloved marvels that God who fills the universe at all times. With all of this being has his hand upon him. He has promised never to leave, and leave us I want to read the amplified version of Hebrews 10 10 Hebrews 13 verse 10 B in the amplified version, probably if the whole Bible was done and that will obviously you can get an amplified version I mean is much thicker than a regular Bible because it uses more words to be able get the real meaning of the Greek or Hebrew. But here's what it says in the amplified version.

The amplified highlights the emphasis conveyed by the Greek words. I will never, under any circumstances. Desert you, nor give you up or leave you without support novel IN any degree leave you helpless nor will I forsake you or let you down. I relax my hold on you assuredly not in the emphasis in this verse folks is for our benefit, not God's. He knows what he's going to do. He's just reassuring us week believers of what is going to do. He's going to be with us wherever we are. Wherever we go and Psalm 23. David said yeah I though I walk to the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil. Why are you are with me your rod and your staff they comfort me. Application of verses 7 to 12. Do you battle anxious thoughts with the truth that the creator and sustainer of all things is with you, leading you, protecting you and providing for you. Do you battle anxious thoughts with the truth, the creator and sustainer of all things is with you, leading you, protecting you and providing for you. We looked at Jake Jehovah's perception of me is pervasive, knows everything there is to know would look. Secondly, Jehovah's provenance for me is person thoroughly Jehovah's plan for me is precise. Verses 13 to 18 and will first of all, look at 13 to 16. Break it up. My particular characteristics and abilities were ordained by God, and they began at my conception, verse 13, you formed my inward parts you covered me in my mother's long I will praise you. Five for I am fearfully and wonderfully made marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of your your I saw my substance being yet unformed and in your book. They all were written the day's fashion for me, when as yet there were none of them. This can be said of May and it can be said of you. God made me when he desired, and as he desired and equip me to perform his will for his glory, you could say the same time believer. God made you 20 desired and as he desired and he is equipped you to perform his will for his glory. That's the bottom line God is fashion. My days from first to last. He's fashion my days from first to last for 16. Notice the days fashion. For me, when as yet there were none of them that word fashion means to mold into a form, or to determine God has determined my days for me, when as yet, or none of them. Joe 14 verse five speaks of mankind in general and it says this is days are determined, the number of his months is with you.

You have appointed his limits, so that he cannot pass. I'm sure that numerous times with people who were terminally ill or had loved ones who were terminally ill. I shared it with an on occasions. The bottom line is this God knows when he's going to call me on and I for one, and I'm sure several of you can say amen to this when I wanted the hot hospital with a heart attack. I mean, it was kind of an I've mentioned this before but it bears repeating. It was an abrupt shocking thing to go out and see if I had indigestion, acid reflux, kiss your wife. She parked the van you walk in and as she's coming to going way they say no you can go with and then they put you after hours on a bed in the emergency room if you been there. You know why go bed they put you in a room and close the door and they told you that you are going to have a procedure done in your heart with a pretty skin and then the doctor says if that doesn't work, and remain open heart surgery okay and the thought hit you. I may never see my family again in this life. Never see him again and as I told you before and a message. There's ahead in detail that the head is. I know I'm going I'm not fearful I'm not fearful I know where I'm going. The tail I gotta leave my family behind this world and so would you do you pray Lord if it would please you allow me to live longer because I want to be here for my family. When things get taught if it would please you allow me to live longer because I want to be here for my family.

When things get tough.

You have a complete piece that God is in control and he has the right is your creator to put the. On your life. He might put in! In the way you die work just be a period you take your last split breath and II don't know why but the Lord brings one my favorite lines of the him to my mind when my spirit close the mortal wings it's flight to realms of day. This my song to endless ages. Jesus let me all the way even to the. At the end of my life that that gives us unbelievable confidence folks and resting in him. Application of these verses you rest in the truth that God is made you plan and how he chose and will call you home at his appointed time and then look at verses 17 and 18. My priority is the word of God for 17 how precious also are your thoughts to me. Oh God, how great is that some of them if I should count them they would be more in number than the sand when I awake, I'm still with you, God's thoughts is revealed in his word, can only become precious when we prioritize our time to meditate upon not just read them with a lick and a promise, but his thoughts is revealed in his word will become precious to us when we prioritize our time and give our times are self time enough to meditate upon the word of God should be our desire to live a life in which is never a waking moment when he is not the ever present guide of our praise in our petition.

Can I read that again it should be our desire to live a life in which there's never a waking moment when he is not the ever present guide of our praise and our petitions application of these verses are the precepts and presence of God precious to you.

We look to Jehovah's perception of me is pervasive. He knows my thoughts my lifestyle my words Jehovah's provenance from his personal is personal in his presence and his protection. Jehovah's plan for me is precise. My birth my makeup, my abilities, or lack thereof my death and then finally end very briefly Jehovah's purpose for me is perseverance in the face. Jehovah's purpose for me is perseverance in the faith verses 19 to 22. Oh that you would slay the wicked. Oh God, depart from me. Therefore, you bloodthirsty men, for they speak evil. They speak against you wickedly your enemies. Take your name in vain do I not hate them all. Lord, that you do I not load those who rise up against you.

I hate them with a perfect hatred. I count them my enemies. One definition of the word purpose and we said Jehovah's purpose for me is perseverance in the face. One definition is an intended result.

God's purpose God's intended route result for us is that we persevere from salvation to glorification and we will persevere because he preserves that's his intended purpose. These verses show that perseverance is not passive. You might've sat there wondering how are you getting perseverance out of such aggressive versus because perseverance is not passive.

It includes passionately contending for the faith against those who hate God is true. One thing I pray daily and all of us should Lord help me to know my convictions give me the courage to contend for the faith.

Help me to know my convictions are things in the hills upon which I'm willing to die.

Help me to know my conviction and give me the courage to contend for the faith. Breaking these verses down verse 19 bloodthirsty men refers to men who shed blood ruthlessly first 20 they speak against you wickedly.

The ESV's words that they speak against you with malicious intent and the words these people actively oppose God and his purposes. Verses 21 to 22. David clearly takes a separated stand in a separate from these people and he views the enemies of God is his enemy. And this brings to mind other passages. Ephesians 6 admonished us believers to take up the whole armor of God.

Why, that they may be able to stand in the evil day. Jude exhorted believers quote to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints and finally Paul admonished Timothy to wage the good warfare to fight the good fight of faith to endure hardship as a good soldier of Christ to keep himself from entanglement with the affairs of this life. I want to get this caution the point is Jehovah's purpose for me is perseverance in the faith. Part of that is contending for the faith. But here's a caution make your contending for the faith about God's glory and not your own may contending for the faith about God's and not your own. Remember decades ago when I was in college of a guided getting sent home school for street preaching. Are you kidding me. They sent them home from school for strict street preaching as they did, why did they do something awful like that. And when you doing a good thing know we want. He was openly violating an ordinance for that particular part of town they would let you go. Many places, but he wanted to go there and when that guy spoke and I #speak with word got out. When he spoke even mimic the founder of the University. I tend why did he get shipped because it was about making a name for himself in the eyes of the other kids. It was very obvious that's what he was doing. My point being when we contend for the faith, make sure it's about God.

Square. Natural. Let me give you first let me give you three verses first Corinthians 1031 to 33 very quickly. Therefore, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all of the glory of God. Give no offense either the Jews or the Greeks of the church of God. Just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit with the profit in many that they maybe say what you point brother Paul who wrote these verses was the enemy of Christians until God stopped him in his tracks. He was the enemy of Christians until God stopped him in his tracks.

So as we contend for the faith. Try to keep in the back your mind. This is a law center need of a Savior. Have courage have convictions, but be cautious. That is all about God and the eternal good of others and not about you David bookends assignment will close with this he bookends it with the same words he began the Psalm with the Lord you have searched me and known me and now notice verses 23 and 24. He ends the Psalm with search me oh God, I know my heart try me and know my anxieties see if there's any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.

He is speaking of an ongoing desire for God to search our hearts to disclose any wicked way in us to lead us in the paths of righteousness. And that's the touchstone of sanctification. We want God the Holy Spirit to lead us to more more like Jesus.

It's the pathway to Christ likeness. What if we consider tonight. God's perception of me is pervasive.

He knows all there is to know about me.

God's providence from his personal right down to the details of my life. God's plan for me is precise and finally his purpose for me is perseverance in the faith, the title of the message is Jehovah and may in the midst of turmoil that is golfing and golfing our world. Those who by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone or trusting in him at the confident expectation that for us the best is yet to come. There will be rough water between here and there, but the best is yet to come. If you're not certain of your standing before God than my exhortation usefully to Christ. Now declare your agreement with God. Your center whose righteousness is of the rags and who needs on deserve forgiveness, declare under God, that you are entrusting by faith. The welfare of your eternal soul to the safekeeping of Christ as your Savior rejoice in the promise that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved to Christians if your fervor Christ has waned. Pray for God to search her heart in the lead you in the way everlasting. If you're in indeed grateful for his grace continue to grow in your gratitude and let the wonder of the gospel be evident to your words and your ways want to close with a poem that should especially make the unsaved do some soul-searching and should also make Christian be more fervent in their witness to the loss be more fervent in their witness to the loss.

When God pulls the plug on this earth as it is today. There will be no more witness there will be no more repentant.

There will be no more faith in Christ.

For people who are not believers in God's eternal plan.

There lies the time when time shall cease when that which is shall always be as judgment is released. No time for what that will might've been no time to see Christ face for those who spurn the gospel call and shun God's means of grace. Most not that you may come some day to kneel before the cross, you may yield your rebel well avoiding endless loss.

The breath that you presume will voice repentant faith in him may never come and you will die in trespass and in sin. This is the day to flee by faith in Christ who has a tone for scarlet sins of all who trust in his shed blood alone does at the cross there justified with Rast red wages paid that you redeemed and reconciled will find your debt is laid no more estranged is enemy, but now God's child by choice saved by his wondrous grace through faith, love, drew you to his voice. You may investment gratitude.

The time that God may give and no true peace and purpose. If you look to Christ and live spray fathers.

We conclude this message is my prayer that it is cause believers to rejoice in what we have and you help us to have the same on adoration that David expressed in this and for those who may be here tonight or maybe watching the live stream Lord if they're not certain that they are resting in Christ that they are trusting in him maybe fleet M today. Help us Lord to never lose the wonder of it all will praise you for it. In Christ name, amen
