God knows Everything About Us

Introduction: God knows everything about us, and there is no need to hide anything from God. In today’s lesson, we want to see some things that God knows about us that often times we forget or try to hide from God. The purpose of this lesson is to remind us that God knows everything, and God is on our side, ready to help us, when we do our part. 

God knows the: 

  1. Secrets of the Heart– Psalm 44:21 “Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart”.(to justify in a moral sense- upright, honest, having principles of rectitude, righteous, religious, living in exact conformity to the divine will). Do you have a secret of the heart? 
    • Luke 16:14-17 “Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts”. 
    • Jeremiah 17:10 “I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings”. 
    • Because God knows the secrets of the heart, we can’t hide anything from God. Confess it and get rid of it. Don’t loose out on the blessings that God has for you by keeping a secret sin in the heart. People may not know it, but God does.
  1. If you’re Trusting in Him– Nahum 1:7 “The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him”. Are you trusting in Him? 
    • We may be able to fool someone by telling them that we are trusting in God for a certain outcome, result, situation, answer, direction, open door, etc., but if we are not doing that, He knows it is so. 
    • God knows if you are truly trusting in Him. Let go of any doubt, fear, advantage, manipulation, pull, etc., and trust in Him completely. 
    • Promise of Trusting in God- Jeremiah 17:7-8 “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD”. This tree is always productive, always bearing fruit. The same is a man that trust in God. 
  1. Frailty of Our Body– Psalm 103:14 “For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust”. We don’t have to hide from God that we are weak, tired, hungry, sleepy, etc., He knows our physical, spiritual, and emotional, frailty. 
    • God know exactly how much we can take at work, at home, with kids, in ministry, etc. 
    • Solution- Matthew 11:28-30 “Take my yoke upon you… and ye shall find res unto your souls”. 
    • Yoke- to couple, to join with another. 
  1. Temptations of Life– II Peter 2:9 “The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation” God knows the temptations that may trip us up, and He also knows how to deliver us from those temptations. Instead of figuring it out for ourselves, we should look for His direction when we see the temptation coming our way.  
    • It’s like a corn maze, He’s the one on top and knows the way to get us out of the corn maze and into safety. 
    • God knows our temptation by lust, riches, wants, the eyes, the mind, etc., and He knows how to deliver us from such temptations. 
    • Look for the way out- I Corinthians 10:13 “but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (the temptation). 

Conclusion: Because God knows the secrets of the heart, we have to keep it clean as often as possible. Regarding trust, we either are trusting in God or in something or someone else. God knows our body, get yoked up with God. Lastly, temptation will come, but knowing the way of escape will help us tremendously, if we know what the escape is.
