How fitting that our study in God’s songbook should end on the high note of Psalm 139! This psalm celebrates God as the omniscient and omnipresent Lord, the Creator-God, and the Holy One. But the psalmist, David, didn’t praise God for merely abstract qualities—he saw the nearness and personal love of the almighty God.
