GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU, BUT STILL LOVES YOU






 God Knows Everything About You, But Still Loves You

“O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. You hem me in—behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; too lofty for me to attain.” Psalm 139:1-6

It’s hard for us to comprehend a God who can know the truth about us and accept us anyway. God is eternal, holy, all-loving, all-wise, omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), omni-present (everywhere at the same time).

David is saying, “God, you know me completely. You’ve made a detailed inquiry into my life. You know all of my actions; all of my words, all of my thoughts; you not only know what I’ve done, you know why I did it. You know it all!”

Proverbs 5:21 says, “For a man’s ways are in full view of the Lord, and He examines all his paths.” God knows every move we make.  God knows everything you’re thinking ­ and He still loves you. Jeremiah 17:10 helps us understand the depth of God’s knowledge: “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind…”

In Matthew 10:30, Jesus said, "The very hairs of your head are numbered." That’s amazing.  But the idea is not that God concerns himself with mental trivia; it’s simply that he’s all-knowing, that he’s aware of everything about you, everything you do and everything you think. He knows what goes on in private as well as what you  do in public. He knows more about you than you want him to know.

To know and understand that God is aware of everything you do and think, can bring a sense of fear or guilt.  But Our Lord Jesus repeated over and over that God is not interested in anything but your  welfare, and receiving thanks and love from you.  “Perfect love will cast out fear.”  The more you develop your relationship with the Lord, the love from God will help you to overcome your sins and problems.  God’s Word says that “The goodness of God leads us to repentance.”  We will begin to understand that His desire is to bless us and give us good things when we follow Him.  Punishment is not His goal, forgiveness and blessings are what He is about.

Not only does God know us completely, He also thinks about us constantly. He knows everything about us ­ and He still likes us. We are known ­ and our Knowable, Holy, Creative, and Ever-present God accepts us. He sees our entire life from the very beginning, even before we start growing in the womb. He knows all about our every sin and moral compromise. And yet, His heart is fixed on us and He thinks about us all the time.

We can feel secure. Having placed our confidence in Christ, no skeleton can come tumbling out of some hidden closet to expose our past and no character flaw can come to light that would make God turn away from us. He already knows everything about us ­ and still loves us!

God says the one thing that we can take pride in is the fact that we know him.  "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me." (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

Jesus said, "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." (John 17:3). So, eternal life is based on whether or not we’ve come to know God.

So what should be our response?  With all the knowledge and caring God has for you, you should trust Him and believe the promises He has given you about taking care of you today, tomorrow and for eternity.

He has accepted you unconditionally - with all your faults. He has agreed to forgive you of all your past and future sins. In turn He has asked you to love Him and keep His commandments so He can show His love to you in the form of blessings now, and give you a future home in Heaven.

Those that choose to reject Him and His love, and choose to live a life of sin will miss His blessings now and His promises of eternal life.  See Psalm 1 that says “Blessed” or happy is the person who follows God and he shall have God’s blessings on his life.  Those that reject God will not be happy or have God’s blessings on their lives.

Remember God knows you better than anyone else and still accepts you as you are.  He wants you to know more about Him so He can bless you and have a relationship with you that will last forever.

I was told by a woman in Maryland who is being taught by her minister that I am a white Nephilidm. When she explained what she is being taught in her church it was racist. On your page you are speaking of a malevolent God named Jesus according to what she taught me. While another woman state that white skinned people with rh negative blood are called Mergovian.
She did not sound racist in what she had taught me as a white woman. Where what she stated was that her Jesus was also Mergovian and she in turn due to her teacings is now a Jew who wears a Jewish cross as a taught previous as a Christian. When I spoke to a French woman she stamted that in France that she was atheist basically and did not know much in regards to what each of these teachings were. I asked her due to the her living in Paris and being of French decedent.

What kind of woman thinks that in order for her to make money that she is better of the woman that she attacks falsely and wrongfully in order to be allowed to make it against a woman like me? Where she is unable to face me in her delusions of herself in her life as that skank for a woman that wants her pathetic little man that I reject in mine?
