The Daily Nosh – Psalms 139:5
You hemmed me in behind and before, and laid your hand upon me. (TLV) Psalms 139:5
Nosh: I love this word picture. Before God ministers to and through us, He first has to maneuver us into a position that enables us to receive His touch, His call, His instruction and His blessing. That hemming in process may be uncomfortable, even difficult, but must surely happen before He can give us His best.
