Embraced in God’s allness—an appreciation for Psalm 139

Few scriptural verses so beautifully enunciate the omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence of God as those of Psalm 139. Through the teachings of Christian Science, the spiritual meaning of this psalm resonates with comforting, healing power.

One helpful concept is found in verses 17 and 18 , which read: “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand.” It is helpful to think about this passage in conjunction with Mary Baker Eddy’s spiritual definition of angels found in the Glossary of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “ANGELS. God’s thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect; the inspiration of goodness, purity, and immortality, counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality” (p. 581 ).
