Known by Whom? We are in the ‘physical’ in the spiritual, we broadcast. Just as we shared re: the serpent ‘speaking’ with Eve in the garden of Eden… no ‘words’ were exchanged – actions speak louder than words.
Plans that are made are known; for they have been mulled on in the minds of Man. ALL our thoughts are Known.
Knowing that God knows our thoughts confronts us with the fact that His knowledge is beyond our understanding, and, despite our thoughts, He loves us so much that He gave us His only Son to give us the gift of eternal life.
Our thoughts are private, and no other man can read our thoughts unless we speak them out. Our thoughts are composed of good, bad, ugly, bizarre, and even sinful thoughts — and for this reason, we filter them out for the physical world to see or not see.
However, despite how we hide our thoughts from the world, there is only one who knows our every thought, and that is Our Lord.
God knows our thoughts, the good, the bad, the positive, the negative, the ugly, and even the sinful because there is nothing that God does not know.
He is omniscient and aware of every little detail including our thoughts. Let us discuss this in detail. In Psalm 139:1-2, David tells us: “O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar.”
The message of David tells us that our thoughts, whatever the dynamics of it may be, is important to God, and because it is so important to Him, He discerns fully, and He continually reminds us that these thoughts matter.
However, we should also be careful as to what we are thinking about and this is particularly mentioned in Isaiah 55:8 as stated, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares The LORD.”
God is PERFECT God as written in Psalm 18:30, “As for God, His way is perfect: The Lord’s Word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in Him.”
This is so very profound! Jesus is The Word made flesh! Amen. My refuge is The LORD, Amen Hallelujah!!!
And because He is perfect and flawless, we, as imperfect beings, full of flaws, can take refuge in Him especially in thoughts, that is through prayer. He knows everything and every detail of our thoughts and He listens to them.
Our thoughts matter and it is important that we communicate our longing for Him and His enlightenment, especially during troubled times because it matters to God.
In 1 John 3:20, we are reminded by this, “If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.”
And in John 13:13, we are reminded by this as well that God is our great teacher, Our Lord whom we can always come to and ask for advice. “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am.”
God Helps Us Transform Our Thoughts
Because we are humans who have flaws and are imperfect, so are our thoughts. That is why God is with us to transform our thoughts into something that is good.
Most of us may be frightened by the fact that God knows everything including our thoughts, but this should not be the case.
We should, rather, be thankful that God is able to know our thoughts because through this, He is able to guide us to the correct path because He is a merciful God. His grace has no bounds. We are reminded by this in Romans 12:2,
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — His good, pleasing and perfect will.
