GOD IS OMNISCIENT


The word omniscient means all-knowing or unlimited wisdom. There is nothing in this universe that is outside of His knowledge. He knows everything from the beginning and the end, and He knows everything about us. Psalm 139:1-4 says, "O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I'm far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD." There are no hidden secrets in this world that He does not know. Everything is laid bare in His wisdom. He understands everything that we are going through.

There are times that we feel that no one understands our situations, but God does. He knows when we are sad, confused, angry, frustrated, or joyful. God knows us more than we know ourselves. God knows where our keys are when we cannot find them. He knows when we have good and evil thoughts. God knows when we are doubting or trusting in Him. He knows when we are in sin or not. God knows everything about us. Since God knows everything about us, we need to trust Him completely. We need to follow His guidance because He knows everything. In Proverbs 3:5-6, it says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not rely on your own understanding. Acknowledge him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight." God knows what is best for us.

God's omniscient should give us the confidence to face everything that we come across every day. God promised us that He would never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). In Matthew 10:28-31, God gave us this promise, "Don't be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell. What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows." The next time we encounter an unexpected situation, we can immediately ask God for help because He already knows everything about our situation.

Ask yourself these questions: What is omniscient? How does it affect my current situation, knowing that God understands everything? Why do I need to trust God in my current situation? Why do I need to follow His ways?

Write down all the worries that you are facing today and lift them up to God.

Prayer:

Father in Heaven, thank you that you are an omniscient God. You know everything about me and my current needs. Please help me to trust and follow your ways. Please help me now with (mention your prayer requests). In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
