In Thy Book

Psalm 139:16
   Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

Psalm 56:8
   Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

Malachi 3:16
   Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

   The Word of God declares that God keeps a book in which every thing about us is recorded. God knew about us before we were born. He knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows how we sit down and how we stand. He understands our thoughts before we think them. He designed every part of us and He keeps record of it in His book.
   In the Bible lands and times people would save their righteous tears in a bottle to prove to God that they had wept many times for a Godly cause. Psalm 56 says that God's people do not need to save their tears, since things done for the glory of God are placed in "His bottle" and kept on record in "God's book" by God Himself. God keeps record of those who love and think about Him in a book of remembrance that is always before Him.
