The Word of Grace Devotion for the Week of October 31, 2016
The Lord Knows
Psalm 103:14- “For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust."
Beloved, there is One who knows everything about everything and everyone. Of course I’m not talking about Google but about Almighty God! God is omniscient, knowing everything about everything and everyone. He knows it all.
In His Omniscience, He knows the worst about us. In fact, it was while we were at our worst that he sent His Son to save us as Romans 5:8 says, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” God knows all about the skeletons in our closet and He's not shocked. Psalm 103 says, "God knows our frame and He remembers that we are dust." I must tell you something: God doesn't have a high expectation of dust.
God also knows us at our best. He knows what other people don't know. They might know about one little thing you did wrong, one problem you had, but they don't know about all the other good stuff you've done and they certainly don't know the motivation of your heart. God does. In First John it says, "If our heart condemns us, God is greater than our hearts and He knows all things." He knows the worst about you; He knows the best about you.
And, since He knows everything, He knows what He's going to make out of you in the future. He knows that. When He looks at you, He doesn't just see the imperfections in you; He also sees the finished product. The Bible says, "We are His workmanship." He sees the finished work of art.
Beloved, God knows it all! He knows the worst about us. He knows the best about us. And He knows what He is going to make out of us! The only He requires of us is that we be a willing vessel. Lord, make us a willing vessel!
Ephesians 3:20-21, “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
I pray that you will have a blessed week! Remember that you are His workmanship created unto good works! I love you and I will be praying for you!
In his Strong Love’
