- Believers should acknowledge and praise the Lord for His omniscience.
- Believers should acknowledge and praise the Lord for His omnipresence.
- Believers should acknowledge and praise the Lord for His omnipotence.
- Believers should acknowledge and praise the Lord for His holiness.

- What attributes of God are highlighted in Psalm 139?
- Define omniscience. Define omnipresence.
- Is David frightened or comforted by God’s attributes?
- In Psalm 19 David looked to the stars as evidence of God’s omnipotence. What does he look to here?
- What is the result of God’s holiness in Psalm 139?
- • His omniscience (verses 1-6)
• His omnipresence (verses 7-12)
• His omnipotence (verses 13-18)
• His holiness (verses 19-24)
- Omniscience means that God has complete knowledge of everything. Omnipresence means that all of God is in all places at all times.
- God’s omnipresence is a comfort to David (verses 11-12), he felt secure because of this truth.
- Here he looks to the wonderful development of the fetus in his mother’s womb to appreciate the wisdom and power of God.
- We see in verses 19-22 that because of God’s holiness evil men and those who hate God and His people will be destroyed.
- Which of the attributes of God described in Psalm 139 is most significant to you? How does this attribute affect you as His creation?
- David praises God for His creation of human beings inside a mother’s womb from the beginning. How does this viewpoint differ from our society today? Consider the implication on your own view of abortion, physical and mental disabilities, physical beauty, etc.
- What would the Lord find if you prayed, “Search me, O God”? Would you be willing to have God take away and change anything wicked that He found?
- “O LORD, You have searched me and known me.” Psalm 139:1
- “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” Psalm 139:14
- “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24
