God Knows You Inside and Out
Psalm 139:2-3 (KJB) Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
Perhaps this is a scary thought for you to consider- God knows all your ways. He is not just acquainted with you when you are pleasing to Him or when you pursue Him. God knows your every thought, move, and action, whether it stands in agreement with His character or not.
Let us be real here; often, our thoughts and ways do not align with God. Why? Because we battle the pull of our flesh on a daily and often moment by moment basis as we walk in this world. The more a person tries to be “good” often, the more he aligns himself with wickedness at work in this world and moves him or her self far from alignment with God.
Why, because this victory is never won on our merit and way.
What, then, is the secret to living a spiritually fruitful life?
Real success is in allowing God to take control of our life, to permit Him to fight our every spiritual confrontation in His way and timing. The Bible tells us in Ephesians chapter six that God gave us every armament we need to stand spiritually prosperous in this world. Yes, God knows just what we need in any situation of life, whether it be a mountain top moment of success or a dip down into a valley of life.
You can count on it- God knows our thoughts, actions, and every way. We cannot fool Him with any flowery speech or fancy moves at any moment of life.
God is intimately familiar with every nook and corner of our life. He is never conned by our speech, our thoughts, or our actions. We can count on God to give us exactly what we need for spiritual success in every moment of life, whether it be a hill or a valley, as we walk aligned to Him in this wicked world.
