Do you think it is possible to know everything? Of course we’ve all met people who think they do! But is the human brain capable of knowing everything? It is amazing how much some of the world’s very clever people do know but even the world’s most powerful computers don’t know everything. God knows everything. He knows all of us inside out from our thoughts to our actions. He knows already what we will do each day and how we will react to things happening to us in our daily lives. God is the creator of all things so of course he knows about all things.
We are told in the book of Psalms ‘ Lord you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up. You discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.’
Some of us may worry a bit about this but that must surely be when we know that what we are doing or saying something that we should not. There is, however, great comfort to be taken from it if we are troubled or worried about our safety and our daily needs. God is watching over us to keep us safe. Jesus says that we should not be anxious about what we shall find to eat or drink or wear because God already knows we need them. If he has looked after the flowers in the fields he is certainly going to take care of us. It says that even the hairs of our head are numbered. Imagine that! That’s how well God knows us.
