God Knows What You Don’t Know! Part Two
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born, I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
There’s a lot about life that we don’t know. We don’t know what the future holds, we don’t know what lies around the next bend, and we certainly don’t know what’s going on in other people’s minds. But of all the things we don’t know, the one thing we may be most vulnerable to is the idea that there’s something we don’t know about God. After all, God is all-knowing, all-seeing, and all-powerful. Right? God knows what is best for us, even if we don’t understand it.”
Another shocking truth is that nobody knows for sure what God knows. And even if we could know for sure, we still couldn’t understand it all. The Bible says that God’s ways are higher than our ways, and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:9). However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t trust God. It just means that we need to be humble about what we think we know and be willing to admit that we don’t know everything. We need to be open-minded and not afraid of asking questions. We need to be able to ask questions without fear of being wrong or knowing it all.
Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
When we think about everything that God knows, it can be daunting and comforting. Daunting because there is so much that we don’t know and will never know; comforting because it means that we can always come to him with our questions and our doubts. Even though we may not understand everything, God is always willing to listen and ready to help. He knows what is best for us and has a perfect plan for our lives. So we can rest assured knowing that he is in control and that everything will work out according to his plan.
Jeremiah 1:5 is a verse that reassures us that God knows us and has a plan for us even before we are born. This verse is a source of comfort for believers because it assures us that no matter what happens in our lives, God is in control and will work everything out for our good. This verse also reminds us that we should commit our ways and plans to God, trusting that He will establish them. Therefore, commit your ways and plans to God; he will establish them. Then, he will make everything work together for your good in Christ Jesus. Psalm 139:15 says, “My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.”
