Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalms 37:4
Imagine if you had knowledge about everything! I am not sure I would want to know the thought of every person and every hidden secret. Well, nothing escapes from the knowledge of God. On yesterday, we stated that one of the reasons to form an intimate relationship with God is because of who He is and His everlasting nature. Today we focus on forming an intimate relationship with Him due to his omniscience. In Psalms, God declares that the cattle on a thousand hills are mine and I know all the birds of the mountains (50: 10-11). This Scripture suggests that God knows all about the behavior and even needs of every bird. If God is interested in the birds of the field, surely He is concerned about every aspect of our lives and wants to lead, guide, and direct us into the good things He has planned for us. It is also written that "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" (1 John 1:5). Light always exposes darkness. God knows all secret truths, every thought of every person, and every plan we would ever devise before we even come up with them! We can tap into this divine knowledge in order to fulfill God's good purpose and plan for our lives. What is the secret to tapping into this divine knowledge you ask? It is found in abiding in Him. The Bible states that "if you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you" (John 15:7). We must abide in Christ through reading His Word, prayer, and daily fellowship. If you are not already doing this, start small if necessary. Ten or fifteen minutes abiding with the Lord on a daily basis can make a great difference! As you abide in Him today, you will tap into his knowledge and as John 15:7 states, your requests will be granted unto you!
