There are a number of Bible portions I turn to from time to time for encouragement in my walk with God and worship. Psalm 139 is one of these.  

I would like to do a devotional study of Psalm 139 with you using the following questions: What does this portion teach me about God? About man? Are there any promises to claim? Commands to obey? Warnings to heed? Let’s take each question separately. 
What do I learn about God in Psalm 139? In verses 1-6 God is presented as omniscient. He knows everything about me and where I am, what I’m thinking, what I’m about to say before I say it. His knowledge is beyond my comprehension. I can’t hide from Him – He sees me clearly even when I try hiding in utter darkness. His knowledge is seen in the intricate details of how fearfully and wonderfully He created me. He knows everything I will experience before it ever happens. His thoughts about me are beyond comprehension or counting. 
You can either cringe in fear at the thought of God knowing you so thoroughly and intimately or be comforted with the thought He fully understands even when you are clueless. He knows my DNA and the world in which He placed me. No wonder the psalmist closes this Psalm with this prayer: “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
That would be a good prayer to pray to the Omniscient One on a regular basis.
