The point of Psalm 139

What is the point of Psalm 139? What should we Christians take from it? What might keep up us from reading it faithfully? I have left some comments in the connected display of the NRSV text. In sum: The point of Psalm 139 is not theological speculation, and certainly not prooftexting for contemporary partisan politics, but to move me to desire to seek God’s leading.
