Does God Know Me?
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.Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
To the writer, there is no escape from the knowledge of GOD. GOD knows everything there is to know about him, even his words before they are spoken. He then goes onto to say that he tried to think about the majesty of this knowledge, but it goes beyond his human understanding. The writer understands that GOD KNOWS all, and he is OK with that fact. In fact the writer finishes with asking GOD to search him and reveal ANYTHING that GOD views offensive.
Do you have the same frame of mind? Are you OK with GOD knowing everything that is going on in your head and your heart? There is a big difference between a religion and a relationship. Most Christians today have a religion, and are not too sure about the relationship part.
Here might be a good analogy that might help you understand the concept of this. Imagine if your spouse, be it a husband or wife, or your parents, Imagine they knew everything that you thought and that was in your heart. To many, I am sure, that concept would scare them. If your spouse or parents were able to know your thoughts, I am sure that you would try very hard to keep your thoughts good and pure.
The same holds true to Christ, except He really does know all your thoughts. In fact, in our minds, anytime we put something before Christ, we make that item or thought an idol, which the Bible refers to as spiritual adultery. We all should be working on a more deeper relationship with Christ, which starts with being absolutely honest with GOD, and spending time in HIS word, which will lead us to being made more like Christ. Make sense?
Are you OK with God knowing everything about you. Does it make you ashamed? Post your comments below.
