Our Father has made provision for EVERYTHING from beginning to end

Pslam 139Nothing escapes our Father’s attention. not only that, but He has already provided for any and every eventuality. The Father is omniscient, after all, which means He knows everything, the end from the beginning.

One of the most succinct declarations of God’s sovereignty anywhere in the scriptures is found Psalm 139:1-18 . It is most beautifully captured in the Concordant Literal translation from Hebrew (including Dead Sea scrolls and Masoretic texts), Greek (Septuagint), and other manuscripts. Compare this with any other versions you like; see if you don’t agree that this reaches  into your spirit, and declares at once the greatness and tenderness of the Father:

O Yahweh [Lord], You have investigated me and are knowing me; You yourself know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought from afar; My path and my pallet You have measured off, And for all my ways You have made provision. For though there be no declaration on my tongue, Behold, O Yahweh, You know it all. Back and front, You have besieged me, And You set Your palm upon me. Such knowledge is marvelous beyond me; It is impregnable; I cannot reach to it. Whither could I go from Your spirit, And whither could I run away from your presence? If I should climb to the heavens, You are there, And should I make my berth in the unseen, behold, You are there. Should I wear the wings of dawn, Should I tabernacle in the hindmost sea, Even there Your hand would guide me, And Your right hand, it would hold me. If I said, “Surely darkness, it snuffed me up, And night is belted about me,” Even darkness, it is not darkening to You, And night, as the day, is giving light; Darkness is as light. For You Yourself achieved the making of my innermost being; You overshadowed me in my mother’s belly. I shall acclaim You, for You are fearfully distinguished; Marvelous are Your works. You have known my soul very thoroughly; My skeleton was not suppressed from You, When I was made in concealment; I was woven together as in the nether parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my embryo, And my days, all of them were written upon Your scroll; The days were formed when there was not one of them. How precious are Your thoughts to me, O El [God], How plentiful are their sums: If I number them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with You.

Nothing has escaped the Father’s attention. He has left nothing to chance. Step to the right or left; He has not only seen it already, but has written our steps — all of them — before we take them. No accidents, no coincidences; we cannot escape His attention, or thwart, delay, or even distract His purpose. He is God and there is no other. AMEN!
