2 Chronicles 6:30 “Then hear Thou from heaven Thy dwelling place, and forgive, and render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart Thou knowest; (for Thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men;)“
He knows us; will we seek Him out in all our ways?
As Christians, we should grab a hold of all of God’s Word to us;…….and of what He will do for us.
That He knows us, our feelings, our troubles, our situation, our plans; should be a fortress around us.
Psalm 44:21 “Shall not God search this out? For He knoweth the secrets of the heart.”
Nahum 1:7 “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him.”
2 Peter 2:9 “The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations,….”
God knows everything about us. How great a comfort this would be, if we let it.
Job 23:10 “But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
This says that the trials that come to us, are allowed by His hand, to bring us closer to Him.
If they are from our own folly and sin;…….then they are to bring us back to Him, and to His care.
Psalm 41:4 “I said, Lord, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against Thee.”
If they are sent from Him as a hurtle in our way;…..then He wants to show us, that He will supply the ability to jump it.
Psalm 18:29-30 “For by Thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
As for God, His way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried (tried and proved): He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him.”
But in some trials, He knows also how much we can grow, now: so….
Psalm 103:14 “ For He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust.”
John 16:12 “I have yet many things to say unto you (His disciples), but ye cannot bear them now.”
God knows, and He helps us to know ourselves:
Psalm 139:1-4 “O Lord, Thou hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knowest my downsittings and my uprising, Thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compasseth my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, Thou knowest it altogether.”
The psalmist saw that God knew, and saw everything about him!
It was a comfort that God saw him even in the womb,….and every time since.
Since God knew him; he understood that God would not lose him in the crowd. God would not forget him.
God would not leave him, even because of his sin;…..but lead him like a child with His hand:
Psalm 139:10 “Even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.”
And so he praised Him for His thoughts of him:
Psalm 139:17 “How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!”
God knows us, what we need (both spiritually and physically),…….and the way we will grow closer to Him.
(For each of us there is a way. Some need more attention here, and others need more attention there. Each child of God is seen to according to that need).
This should be a safe place to rest, in every situation: I may not know; but God does…and He will surely lead me on.
Luke 12:30-32 “For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
Let us seek after Him, that knows; and rest in His will and Word.
