He Is Our God!

It is difficult for us to wrap our minds around the concept of an omniscient God. Because God’s knowledge is perfect, there is no fact so obscure as to be beyond His awareness. This is a far cry from Hollywood’s rendition of God. Some are just not comfortable with attributing to God qualities which are super-human. Even religious people seem bent on taking the punch out of God’s power. Famous scholars have sought to explain away Bible miracles as merely natural events. They say that the ancient Israelites merely crossed over the Red Sea on swampy ground – that the Egyptians were unable to follow in their heavy chariots without getting stuck in the mud. Others have suggested that Jesus did not actually die on the cross, but that He merely passed out under the stress and later revived in the coolness of the tomb. It would be better if such critics would reject the Bible altogether than cast shadows on its reliability. After all, if the Bible teaches falsehood in one area, how can we rely on it in other areas?

God knows all things – past, present, and future. By comparison, we are limited to what we are able to learn from the past and what we can experience in the present. God’s perfect knowledge can be disquieting to the one who prefers to dwell in darkness. But, “There is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do” (Heb. 4:13). We cannot hide from God.

On the other hand, the perfect knowledge of God can be quite reassuring to the one who has placed his or her trust in Him. The God who knows every time a sparrow falls to the ground and can name every star in the heavens is certainly able to watch over His people. He knows our needs better than we and is aware of our requests even before we are able to put them into words. He is the God who created the heavens and the earth. He is the God that we must serve and worship. Because we are limited in resources, we do not understand everything that happens in this life. But, we can trust in the wisdom of our all-knowing God who says, “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts higher than your thoughts” (Is. 55:8-9).

He is our God and we must acknowledge and accept Him for who He is without trying to bring Him down to our own level in our thinking. He is the all-knowing, highly exalted, self-existent, eternal King over all things and He is our God!
