Gods Perfect Knowledge of Us
LORD, You have searched me and known me. You
know when I sit down and when I rise up; You do scrutinize my path and my lying down, and
are intimately acquainted with all my ways (Psalm 139:1-3).
Have you ever taught God anything? The truth is God has never
learned from anyone. If He did or could he would not be God. He would be
another imperfect person.
grateful that nothing catches the LORD God by surprise.
Adams sin did not catch Him by surprise and neither does mine. His perfect knowledge of me makes me love and
appreciate His grace more every day.

wrote in Knowledge of the Holy, God knows instantly and effortlessly all matters, all mind and every
mind, all spirits, all being and every being, all creaturehood and all creatures, every
plurality and all pluralities, all law and every law, all relations, all causes, all
thoughts, all mysteries, all enigmas, all feeling, all desires, every uttered secret, all
thrones and dominions, all personalities, all things visible and invisible in heaven and
in earth, motion, space, time, life, death, good, evil, heaven, and hell
apostle Paul said, Oh, the depths of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable His judgments, and His paths beyond tracing out! (Rom 11:33)
knows everything about us muses the Psalmist David.
That is one of the most astonishing facts and great comfort for the
never be out of His mind. It is most
reassuring to be always in His conscious presence. He
sees and knows everything all the time. It is
humbling and encouraging.
have enclosed me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me (v.5).
only are we in His presence, but all our habits, plans, aims, desires, attitudes,
ambitions, etc. are known to Him. You
understand my thoughts from afar (v.2b). He
knows the secrets of the heart (Ps. 44:21b). Jesus
said, God knows your hearts (Lk. 16:15).
The LORD said to Samuel, God sees not as man sees, for man looks at
the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (I. Sam. 16:7). Again to King Solomon God said, The LORD
searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if
you forsake Him, He will reject you forever (1 Chron. 28:9).
David realized that God was thoroughly familiar with all his daily activities, from his
going out in the morning to begin his day until his lying down at night in sleep. Even before David could frame a word on his lips,
the LORD was thoroughly familiar with what he was going to say.
your first reaction is like that of Tozer who said, In the divine omniscience we see
set forth against each other the terror and fascination of the Godhead. That God knows each person through and through can
be a cause of shaking fear to the man that has something to hide some unforsaken
sin, some secret crime committed against man or God (pp. 61-63).
other hand, the apostle Paul reminds us that this same knowledge of God brings comfort in
time of suffering. He who
searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the
saints according to the will of God (Rom. 8:27).
