LORD, and you know all about me.
You know when I am resting or when I am working,
and from heaven you discover my thoughts.
You notice everything I do and everywhere I go"
(Psalm 139: 1-3, CEV).
There was a time in my life that these words brought fear, not comfort. But I did not understand then what I know now. I know that my sins are forgiven and God no longer looks at me as a sinner but one whose sins have been removed. I know that my Father looks deep into my heart and sees who I will be. I know now that I live under the promise of the new covenant. The new covenant ( a solemn binding agreement between two parties) in Jeremiah 31: 33, 34 (also see Heb 8: 7-13) tells me that:
1) Instead of the law written on stone it will be written on my heart.Having a greater understanding of the New Covenant now than I did then causes this verse to bring such great peace and comfort. For I know that my God knows all about me and will always be with me. He sees me through the eyes of the new covenant not the eyes of condemnation.
2) God will be my God and I will be His daughter.
3) I can KNOW Him.
4) My sins will be forgiven and remembered no more!
Thank you Father for making a way, so that, we might have a personal relationship with you.
I thank you for the blood of the new covenant which cleanses me from all my sins and is no longer remembered.
Talking about the old covenant verses the new covenant Heb 9:14 in the NASB says…
"How much more will the blood of Christ who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
