God Already Knows Everything

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

Romans 8:28

Ponder This

God already knows everything that’s going to happen. That’s difficult for us to understand because we’re humans and we think in finite terms. It’s like a little boy watching a parade through a knothole. He sees the floats as they go past, but only what comes through the knothole of his perspective. Now suppose somebody was to see that little guy watching the parade through the knothole and pick him up and take him to the top of a ten-story building. There the little guy sees the whole parade below and he sees everything in between. He has a different vantage. That’s an imperfect illustration because he can only see so far but God can see all the way and all the time. God sees from eternity. We live in time, so what takes place to us is sequential in time. But God knows the beginning to the end. The Bible says, “‘Known to God from eternity are all His works’” (Acts 15:18). God knows it all.

  • How does it comfort you to know God knows literally everything?
  • How might this knowledge change the way you face difficult situations each day?
