DOES GOD KNOW YOU?

In Blog, Devotional by David Levy2 Comments

The Torah (Jewish Scriptures) teaches, “And the Lᴏʀᴅ God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being [i.e. soul]” (Genesis 2:7). God is the One who created you; and, yes, He knows everything about you.

Yes, I know that is a Wow! statement, but it is truth!

You say, “I don’t feel God. In fact, I don’t even sense His presence and never did. This talk about the possibility of a God seems so ethereal, metaphysical, out there somewhere, and very unreal to me.”

Yes, I know, because I use to think the same way!

You are probably thinking, “Well if there is a God out there why hasn’t He made Himself known to me, especially during difficult times when I really needed some comfort, help, and just a listening ear?”

Yes, I know, because I use to think just like you!

In fact, let me tell you something that will blow your mind and seem very unreal to you. Listen to this! God knew you long before you were ever formed in your mother’s womb.

Friend, you cannot pull the wool over God’s eyes in your everyday dealings in this world. God knows what you are thinking, planning, where you are going, and the way you will take to get what you want whether through lying or honesty.

David, the king of Israel, wrote in the Jewish Tanakh more than 3,000 years ago, “You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb . . . when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought . . .Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed” (Psalm 139:13, 15–16).

God knitted every cell of your body together in your mother’s womb. He sovereignly directed the natural process during gestation while you were being formed in your mother’s womb. He controlled the DNA and the gene selection, gave you a wonderful mind, personality, and brought you into this world to experience life and get to know Him.

Another Wow! for you to contemplate.

You are probably thinking, “Is this some fairytale you’re weaving together to hoodwink me? Where are you going with this God-talk? What are you trying to sell me? Do you think I am some fool born yesterday?”

No ulterior motive from my end, just trying to get you to see that the Jewish God really does know you.

Here is what David went on to say happens after your birth, “You know my sitting down and my rising up; you understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O Lᴏʀᴅ, you know it altogether” (Psalm 139:2–4). Put another way, God knows your every movement, every motive, and every moment.

Friend, you cannot pull the wool over God’s eyes in your everyday dealings in this world. God knows what you are thinking, planning, where you are going, and the way you will take to get what you want whether through lying or honesty. God knows you are trying to work your own mojo to get through life. God is acquainted with all your ways from birth until death. Oh yes, God knows the day you die as well! In fact, He calls it an appointment (Hebrews 9:27).

Talk about God’s memory—God never forgets a single nanosecond in your life. He has instant recall of every word you might think, or ever speak.

Well, what do you think about that, my friend? That is the biggest Wow! imaginable!

Yes, I know what you are probably thinking, “This is all scary stuff if it is true, but it cannot really be true.” Well, why can’t it?

Yes, it is true, and has stood the test of time, since King David wrote it 3,000 years ago.

Listen up! Don’t you think that a God this involved in your creation and day-to-day life would want you to find the meaning and fulfillment He has planned for your life? If you are really, I mean really, honest with yourself, you would not stonewall the question or try to wiggle out of the answer, but say yes to all King David wrote about God.

Let me put it another way: It would only stand to reason that such a God would have a plan for your life that could only be realized through personal knowledge of Him.

God said these wonderful words to our Jewish forefathers at a very difficult time in their history. Listen closely:

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lᴏʀᴅ, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:11).

  • God has thoughts of peace toward you and not evil.
  • God wants to give you a future and hope with Him leading.
  • If you take God seriously He will listen when you talk to Him.
  • If you seriously seek God you will find Him.
  • The key is to SEARCH FOR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART.

Does it get any better than this, dear friend? Yes, God knew you before you were ever conceived. Yes, God has a wonderful plan for your life, no matter how big a mess you have made of it. Yes, God stands waiting for you to make the first move towards Him. Yes, God has a listening ear ready to help you. Yes, God will unfold His wonderful plan for you, if you search for Him with all your heart. All you need do is have a heart-to-heart talk with God. Such knowledge could only be acquired through conformity with His will for your life.
