God Knows All Things
June 28 - Devotion
God knows everything that everyone does; he knows people’s thoughts and actions, and he will respond to them accordingly. The psalmist described the omniscient and omnipresent characteristics of God. He said,
“O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; you understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O Lord, You know it altogether” (Psalm 139:1-4).
Anyone who thinks that he can successfully hide from God's presence is joking. No one can hide from God, since he is present everywhere, and he knows all things. In fact, God’s eyes see clearly in dark places, and his presence is predominant where no human being can survive. Since God is such a powerful being, all people ought to fear and submit to him. Everyone should be conscious of the watchful eyes of God before engaging in any action. (God will judge and reward all things – whether good or bad!)
Dear God, I realized that you see and know all things, and you will judge all things. Please help me to satisfy you with my thoughts and actions, so that I will not sin against you. Give me the grace to satisfy you in everything I do, so that I can prosper in the land of the living. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
