SCRIPTURES: 1 Samuel 2:3 Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is A GOD OF KNOWLEDGE [JEHOVAH EL DE’OT], and by him actions are weighed. Psalms 139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
THOUGHT: JEHOVAH EL DE’OT – LORD GOD OF KNOWLEDGE is all-knowing. This quality or characteristic of God is called Omniscience. God is called Omniscient. It is the ability to have all knowledge of every single detail of every single thing, whether it is significant or seemingly insignificant. Clearly this quality only belongs to our God and Creator, who is the LORD GOD of ALL KNOWLEDGE. God sees all and knows all, so nothing is hidden from Him.
Therefore, you can give up acting and be absolutely honest with God about everything, yes everything! Sometimes people act like they believe, but don’t truly believe, or act like they care, but don’t really care, or act like they forgive, but have not truly forgiven. God already knows where you are mentally and emotionally. He knows how you truly feel compared to what you say. He also knows about the “self talk” that goes on in your head. He really wants you to be completely and totally honest with Him. He can handle it. Be brutally honest with God in your prayer with Him from today on.
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father – JEHOVAH EL DE’OT – LORD GOD OF KNOWLEDGE: You know everything about my life and about my cares and concerns. There is not a thought in my mind or a word on my lips that You do not know. I realize that I can and must be honest with You, that I can say what is going on and express how I feel about it and ask for Your wisdom, guidance and help in every situation. Lord, make me to know when the change that needs to happen is me, rather than something or someone else. Help me to keep my eyes and my hope in You. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!
AN EXTRA HELPING: Reading through the Psalms you will see that the psalmist was very honest in expressing to God how he felt about what he was going through. However, you will see that he usually turns his despair to hope and faith in God, no matter what. For example, see Psalm 42 & 43 – These are prayers of despair, with tears of despondency, yet filled with hope. After pouring out his heart with his problems, he tells himself: “Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Psalm 42:5 & 11.
As a true believer, crying out to God you must know that He already knows your situation and that He hears the honest prayer of faith and that He will answer you if you live with honesty and integrity, trusting God and forbidding doubt.
