We live in a world where satellites and drones can see license plates thousands of feet above ground. Where government officials and hackers can find out about you and I. Knowledge is power! Imagine knowing what’s going to happen in the future like shootings, hurricanes, North Korea, the Middle East, terrorist plots before they happen. Imagine knowing tomorrow’s news.
God knows everything possible – all events in the past, present and in the future. He’s never surprised about what we did in private. He’s never shocked. He knows every detail of our entire life history.
I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please. Isaiah 46:10.
He knows what has happened, what is happening and what will happen! He knows everything that could’ve happened that didn’t, what can happen, but won’t. It is encouraging to know that…
God knows our faults and failings. Psalm 69:5
He knows absolutely everything about us. We forget this sometimes because it can make us feel uncomfortable. None of us have secrets from God. We always have an audience of ONE – there’s nothing off the record! Everything you think about, God is aware of. Ezek.11:5 God knows about everything you see, do and say! Ps.139:4
Aren’t you glad your life is not in the National Enquirer at the checkout lane of the grocery store for all to see? He knows our hypocrisy and he still lavishes His love upon us. Amazing! He doesn’t hold it against us. We can respond by being honest with God. He knows all about it, but he understands and He still loves you!
God knows our feelings and frustrations.
We might think that nobody knows what we’re going through, but God does. He sees the crisis in our soul. There is no hurt unnoticed by God. Often when we’ve been deeply hurt we can feel isolated and lonely and think, “Nobody understands what I’m going through” but God does!
I will be glad and rejoice in your love for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.
God knows your feelings and frustrations more than anyone else. Ps.103:13-14. In the midst of your weariness God is sympathetic. He NOT only sees, but He cares for you! He understands why it happened. He knows the reasons that brought you to a certain place in your life. He sees the hurt in your heart that no one else can. Psalm 142:3.
God knows your future.
Fortune tellers, astrologers, seers or tea leaf readers sell the future, but these are the wrong sources. God sees tomorrow and what you will face and He is not limited to time. God is like the blimp at the Rose Bowl parade, He sees the beginning and the end of the parade. He is the alpha and the omega. He knows your future and is not surprised.
Since God knows your future you can ask His advice. God will not lay out your whole life at once. If you did know your future you could be discouraged or filled with pride or both. If you’re driving on a two lane mountain road and there is a slow car in front of you, you could pass the car so you could get to your destination sooner. God is like a helicopter, He sees the other car coming toward you in the other lane. He knows what’s coming. Don’t forget that.
Being that God sees all of your life ask Him for His strength and direction for your future. You’ll be glad you did.
