Verse of the Day: “O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me” ( Psalm 139:1NLT).
What Does God’s Omniscience Mean for Me? (Psalm 139:1)
By Debbie W. Wilson
God is omniscient. That means that He knows everything. He knows the future, the past, and everything that is going on in this moment. He knows calculus, microbiology, and English. He understands physics and engineering. He knows the pressures of providing for a family and running a business. But more personally, He knows everything about me.
Let’s look at some of what God’s omniscience means for us personally.
Because God is omniscient I can be real. God’s omniscience means we don’t have to pretend with Him. We don’t have to clean up our thoughts and emotions before we approach Him. He already knows everything.
God understands why we’re upset. He knows the root of our insecurities, disappointments, and our needs. He can handle our doubts, fears, and critical thoughts. He’s the perfect One to guide us to peace, health, and healing.
David demonstrated the practical value of God’s omniscience at the end of Psalm 139 when he prayed, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life” (verses 23-24 NLT).
David knew the hate he had blurted out in previous verses needed God’s attention. Instead of hiding behind pious platitudes or saying, “Just kidding; I didn’t mean it,” David invited God into His ugly thoughts and emotions.
Because God is omniscient we don’t have to explain our situation or confusion to Him. We simply ask Him for help. He knows just what we need.
What does omniscient mean for me?
Because God knows everything we can approach Him with any problem and find the grace and help we need ( Hebrews 4:16). Knowing God is omniscient means it’s important to stay in step with Him. He knows where roads will lead; I don’t. When His ways don’t make sense to my limited understanding, I know I can trust His wisdom.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take” ( Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT).
