Creator, Ordainer, Rock, Redeemer, Help...
Dear Rochester church family,
At different times yesterday, Chris and I both visited with Pete Moody over the phone. During my discussion with Pete of all the chaos and changes going on, he encouraged me by pointing out several verses from Psalm 139.
Below are passages Pete shared to meditate on that will give encouragement and assurance on the HUGENESS of our God and our faith response.
God is good all the time.

7- “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8- If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
9- If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10- Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11- If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,”
12- Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.
13- For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14- I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
15- My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16- Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
17- How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
18- If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You...
23- Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
24- And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.”
