God Knows

God knows our every thought and deed, our rising and sitting down. This sister who wrote the below text could not have said it better. Be blessed.

God Knows Everything 07.18.08

Hello My Friend/Guest,

It is Friday July 18, 2008 and today we are continuing our studies on the book of Psalms. Please read Chapters 132-143 in your Bible or Click Here to read. Cut & Paste to your browser: biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%20132-143&version=9

Today we will read about a prayer for God’s blessing; the joy of unity; exhortation to praise the Lord; God’s enduring mercy; God’s Word magnified, the all-seeing providence of God; David’s prayer for deliverance from Saul; comfort in prayer; and a prayer for mercy in judgment. Today’s message focuses on the importance of realizing that Satan would like for us to believe that we can hide our sin and get away with it, but the truth is God knows our hearts and knows everything sin that we commit.

Those who form the family of God should surely live together in peace and harmony. You will be unable to discover any beauty worth speaking of in the false unity created and maintained by compromise of principles and man made rules and regulations. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.” (Psalm 133).

The unity that is pleasant to the Lord is the unity of Christians brought about through the Holy Spirit. We are all unique, yet there is perfect unity. The word pleasant denotes delightful and lovely. It should be an attitude manifestation toward others.

God reveals that, at conception, we became a person, a living soul. Although, as an unborn infant, we were hidden from human view, as if buried in the earth, our bodies are no mystery to our Creator, who prepares us for our journey on earth. Nothing that we are going through is a surprise to God because He already knew that it was going to happen. God explains this to David as He inspired him to write Psalm 139. “O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest 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.” (Psalm 139: 1-4).

David shows us that a sincere love of God prompts a clear break from sin, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (139:23-24). This request expresses sincerity. It is not the request of one who was ignorant of his true character and inflated with presumption, but of one who thoroughly knew his natural human tendency to self deception. Just as one unguarded entrance to a high-walled city may admit an invading horde, David knew that yielding to one temptation could weaken an otherwise guarded life.

Let us be well assured that God alone knows our hearts completely. For example, David in his time of sins of adultery and murder, apparently lived without confession and without forgiveness and without his conscience convicting him because he was in all other activities appearing as a very good and gracious king of the kingdom of God. ”(See II Samuel). One year later the prophet Nathan was led of God to show David what he was doing wrong. It was God’s authoritative Word that brought conviction and exposed David’s wickedness to his own heart. Deeply grieved, David confessed his sin, repented, and was pardoned by God and restored to fellowship with Him. But as God foretold, David suffered many tragedies to the day of his death.

The Word, by the power of the Holy Spirit, is the instrument which the Lord God uses today to search the depths of the human heart.

In today’s message Jesus Christ is revealed as the descendant of David. “The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.” (Psalm 132:11). “He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:” (Luke 1:32).

Today’s Prayer:
Dear Lord,
Nothing brings abiding peace more than knowing that we are saved from the penalty of sin and that we are firmly grounded in Your holy precepts. It makes us feel safe in a struggling world that continues to search for knowledge from all the wrong sources. We are sound in our outlook when we align our understanding and convictions with the teachings of Christ, in You we are saved and we are sound. In Jesus’ name…..Amen.

Enjoy the rest of your day and weekend! TGIF!

God Bless,
Christina
