Have you had your JOY JUICE today? God KNOWS that it’s good for you, so drink it in…..faithfully!
This week we are talking about words that describe our awesome God. He is Omnipresent….that means He’s everywhere! He is Omnipotent…which means He is Almighty! And today we’ll talk about the omniscience of God.
One dictionary (The Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2006) offers this definition of omniscient: “having complete or unlimited knowledge, awareness, or understanding; perceiving all things.” That is quite a mouthful! But simply put: the Bible tells us that God does perceive all things, which means that no fact can be hidden from His knowledge.
As King David recognized in Psalm 139:12: “Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You”. God sees all things, and nothing can be hidden from His knowledge—not even the secret intentions of the heart (Psalm 44:21). In fact, He understands our own intentions better than we do (Jeremiah 17:9-10; Hebrews 4:12)!
Human beings perceive through our senses, but there are limits to what the senses let us perceive and understand. God is not limited like we are! His Spirit searches all things (1 Corinthians 2:10), and nothing is beyond God’s ability to perceive it. Nothing can escape His gaze and His knowledge.
May we trust in God’s unlimited knowledge. What JOY to have faith in our Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent God!
