There are just some thoughts that just perplex me. One of those thoughts is that God actually knows who I am. Not only that He cares about and even loved me even though I am no so loveable. What does He know? Well, He knows everything! For example:
- He knows the thoughts and intentions of our hearts: And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? –Matthew 9:14
- He knows our frailties: For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we [are] dust. –Psalm 103:14
- He knows us even before we were born: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, [and] I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. –Jeremiah 1:5
- Yet beyond all reason He still loves us: We love him, because he first loved us. – 1 John 4:19
And His showed His love in the ultimate sacrifice: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. –John 3:16
I cannot pretend to understand why, but I know I am thankful that He does. Despite the fact there is nothing at all to recommend me, nothing worthy in myself alone, but God says He still loves us even though he knows everything we are, and that is love. Jesus knows me, this I love.
