God Knows Us Completely

January 20th, 2023

Jeremiah 17:5-10

Have you ever played hide-and-seek with a young child? Little children often think that if they can’t see you then you cannot see them. You may find them sitting in plain view with their hands over their face. They think they are well hidden since they cannot see. 

When we try to hide our sinful thoughts and deeds from the Lord, we are like a little child hiding in plain view with our hands over our eyes. We cannot hide from the view of the Lord. We may feel that He cannot see us because we are hiding our eyes; we are only hiding our sin from ourselves.

The Lord sees every motivation of our heart. He sees every thought that enters our minds. We are completely known by Him.  This is truth that we must face.

His omniscience can also be comforting when we are falsely accused or judged by others. We can be comforted knowing that God always knows the truth. Whether good or bad, He knows the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
