It is a comfort to me to know that JESUS knows my everything. I used to put HIM in a box tucked away on a shelf and only let HIM in once in a while, only when I needed something. But those days are long gone. When I finally let HIM into my life, all of it, what a difference JESUS makes! HE is my everything, my all and all.
JESUS knows my everything…….every thought, every tear, every step and every fear…….
PSALM 139: 1 “OH LORD, YOU HAVE SEARCHED ME AND KNOWN ME.”
I wonder how many of us put up walls thinking that will keep JESUS out and it might work for a while, but eventually we end up in a kind of prison of our own making.
The LORD knows us backwards and forwards no matter what we try to do to push HIM out. It is a control thing on our part. But JESUS already knows what we are made of, sins and all and the best news of all, the good news is this……
HE DOESN’T TURN AWAY.
No, we are guilty of turning away, especially when we sin. We think HE won’t see that way, but HE does……
PSALM 51: 4 “AGAINST YOU, YOU ONLY, HAVE I SINNED AND DONE WHAT IS EVIL IN YOUR SIGHT…….”
When we repent and turn from our sin, confess our sin and ask for forgiveness, we realize that GOD does know our everything.
PSALM 139: 3 “YOU SEARCH OUT MY PATH AND MY LYING DOWN AND ARE ACQUAINTED WITH ALL MY WAYS.”
HE KNOWS OUR EVERYTHING!
He knows us better than anyone, and often I think to myself that GOD knows me better than I know myself. And I am ok with that because then I have come to trust HIM in all things. I trust HIS wisdom, HIS guidance and HIS goodness.
HE LEADS ME TO THE WELL THAT NEVER RUNS DRY FOR ME…….NEVER.
GOD even sees the race before us and walks beside us in our everything. Oh how thankful can we be for this fact! He walks beside us and behind us and all around us, all the time, in all of our everything. HE sees what we need, how we need it and when we need. And yet, in spite of ourselves, HE still loves us dearly!
GOD loves us in the morning and in the evening and HE knows all our battles and scars and tears.
HE IS FAITHFUL TO US IN EVERYTHING.
Yes, HE is faithful now and will be to us in the future, in our everything. Who do you know on this earth that is completely faithful in all things? Let your faith right now be bigger than all your problems today, because problems will always come to us. Thank you LORD that you know each hurdle that comes our way and YOU help us through and over those hurdles……
2 THESSALONIANS 3: 3 “BUT THE LORD IS FAITHFUL.”
Did you catch that? But……the LORD is. Not the LORD will, but the LORD is, meaning now and always and forever. What a comfort! When we aren’t even faithful to HIM, HE is to us! In spite of ourselves, HE is faithful with our everything.
Even when we turn away, GOD is faithful. Just read the Old Testament and see how GOD was faithful always to Israel and her people. Always, because the LORD is faithful.
YES, HE is jealous for you dear one, HE knows your everything and HE still loves you dearly. Allow HIM into your life, all of it……..all of your everything!
DEUTERONOMY 7: 9 “KNOW THEREFORE THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD IS GOD, THE FAITHFUL GOD WHO KEEPS COVENANT AND STEADFAST LOVE WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS.”
