Pastor’s Corner May 2017

Here is an amazing start in understanding our Heavenly Father. I will point out some chapters and verses, leaving you to search for others. There are more than 30 texts telling what God knows, as told by God Himself in the Holy Bible. A sparrow “shall not fall (in death) on the ground without your father” knowing. And “the very hairs of your head are numbered”, Matthew 10; He hears our words all the time and our “mediation”, Psalm 19; God’s eye “is upon them that fear him” and “hope in his mercy”, Psalm 33; God’s eyes, ears and face are for our protection and care, Psalm 34; God’s eyes “are in every place”, Proverbs 15; no one can “hide” from God because He fills “heaven and earth”, Jeremiah 23; nothing can “separate us from the love of God”, Romans 8; and “Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite”, Psalm 147:5. I did not give the verse location because there is so much about God in these chapters that you will benefit by scanning reading and finding more treasures of God’s Word. Okay, I will help you with the search for more things God knows. “The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” Nahum 1:7; “But he (God) knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” Job 23:10; “For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous:…” Psalm 1:6. Jesus told us that His Father knows about us. Read Matthew 6:8, 32 and 33; God knows our frame but don’t stop too quickly. Read all of Psalm 103 and Psalm 104. Then you will have a nice prayer of thanks to give to God. You will find yourself saying with David, the author of Psalms, “…Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.” God knows the days of the upright, Psalm 37:18; God knows you and me, what we do, what we think, all ours ways, what we say, and where we go. Pray to God “Lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:1-24; God knows the hearts of all mankind, I Kings 8:39 and Psalm 44:21; God knows our foolishness and our sins which are not hid from Him, Psalm 69:5; He knows our abode, our going out and our coming in, II Kings 19:27; God knows our works and thoughts, Isaiah 66:18 and Psalm 94:11; God knows our transgressions and sins, Amos 5:12; God says, “…for I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them.”, Ezekiel 11:5. Only our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus knows all this about us and yet God loved us and sent His Son to die for our Salvation. Our correct response is: Jesus said, “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength:…” and I would say to serve our Heavenly Father every day that He gives us.
