Words of Encouragement

Where is this road leading?  For many of us, we do not know where every road will lead.  Yet, we can rest in God, because he will never say, "I don't know".  He is the one that knows it all.

If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god, would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart?  - Psalm 44:20-21

Things God Will Not Say. I Don't Know What to Do. We often times, think things about God that are not true.  No, we will not say it with our mouths, but the thoughts are often there.  The enemy of our soul tries to make us doubt God and his awesome power.

In today's scripture, we are reminded by the Psalmist that God is never caught unaware of anything.  God will never look upon us and say, "I don't know what to do."  God knows if we go astray or he knows when we are faithful.  He knows the very secrets of our hearts.

If God knows our hearts, doesn't that mean he also knows what we will face?  He will not look upon the situations of our lives and sit in wonderment, as if this has caught him off guard.

Today, we can be encouraged to know that God will never say he doesn't have knowledge about our lives and our life situations.  We can be encouraged that even though this may be true for us, it is not true about God.

Today, I pray for us, Lord help us to be reminded that you know all about us because you formed us.  You know our coming in and our going out. Lord help us, this day to trust you more.
