He Knows Everything

Omniscience of God

About All Things

Daniel 2:22 NASB95
22 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.
Psalm 147:5 NASB95
5 Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.
Hebrews 4:13 NASB95
13 And 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.

Without Being Taught

Isaiah 40:13–14 NASB95
13 Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, Or as His counselor has informed Him? 14 With whom did He consult and who gave Him understanding? And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge And informed Him of the way of understanding?
Romans 11:34 NASB95
34 For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor?

About Us

Psalm 139:2–4 NASB95
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. 3 You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways. 4 Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O Lord, You know it all.
God is not susceptible to fake news! He knows the whole truth about everyone and everything.
Psalm 90:8 NASB95
8 You have placed our iniquities before You, Our secret sins in the light of Your presence.
John 21:17 NASB95

God is not just a computer bank of knowledge. He is also wise. That is, He uses His infinite knowledge bring the perfect end result by the using the best possible way. Because He knows all things, no one could possibly come up with a better way of doing the universe than He can.
Men try to second guess God and think that if they were in God’s position, they would have handled things in a better way than He has. Such arrogance from such limited and small creatures!

About Our Need

Acts 2:23 NASB95
23 this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death.
God know all about you. Your whole life is open for God to see in infinite detail. He knew every mistake, every sin, every backsliding. But knowing you did not at all scare Him away from loving you. He initiated a relationship with you in full disclosure of all your actions past, present, and future. There is nothing that you have done, or will do that will catch Him by surprise or stop Him from loving those who belong to Him.
Do you belong too Him?
