may not know me,
but I know everything about you.
1 O LORD, you have searched me and you know me.
knows you. Even if you don't know him, he knows everything
about you. He knows how you were made, why you were made,
and why you do the things you do. He created you and fashioned
you in His extravagant love for His eternal purposes.
If a car mechanic can recite in great detail, the purpose
of every part in a re-built engine, how much more is the
Creator of the heavens and the earth able to recite every
characteristic of His beloved children.
knows every bump, every bruise, and every failure. He
knows every fear, every inadequacy, and every one of our
dreams. He knows us through and through, yet He still
loves us unconditionally. The thought of such intimacy
with God causes many of us to cringe in fear. How could
God know me as I really am, yet still love me? Shame caused
Adam and Eve to run from the presence of their all knowing,
all seeing Father. But God does not want us to run from
Him, but rather run to Him.
when we do hide, we can't escape His loving gaze. Yes
our Father knows us intimately and He loves us with an
everlasting love. His love for us is higher, and deeper
and wider than any other love we have ever experienced
in our entire lives. The love that we are familiar with
is usually conditional and based upon performance. But
thanks be to God, that Father's love is not an earthly
love, it is divine in nature and not based upon our own
sense of personal goodness, but rather on His goodness
and mercy. Yes your Father knows you, and He loves you
with all His heart.
Father, You know everything about me. You see all my bumps
and bruises, yet you love me unconditionally. I pray that
I will not run and hide from you today, but rather run
towards you. I thank You that Jesus paid the price for
all my inadequacies, so that I might come to you with
complete confidence. I thank You, that even though You
know me, You still love me as your little child. Help
me to walk in your extravagant, unconditional love today
In the name of your beloved Son, Jesus I pray, Amen.
