I woke up Sunday morning with these words running through my mind – God knows. It hit me like fresh revelation and I just kept meditating on those words over and over again. God knows. God knows what? He knows I am having a hard time getting out of bed today. He knows the pain I am in and the uncertainty I have about the future. He knows my deepest need, my unspoken dreams, my most crippling fears. He knows what tickles me and what gets my blood boiling. He knows what path to lead me on, what doors to open and what doors to close. He knows just the right words to whisper to my heart. He knows the part of me that I won’t show you, the part of me I’d rather not see. He knows that I need Him much more than I realize. He knows the condition of my heart – the good, the bad, the ugly.
He tells me this in Psalm 139: O Lord, Thou hast searched me and known me. Thou dost know when I sit down and when I rise up; Thou dost understand my thought from afar. Thou dost scrutinize my path and my lying down, And art intimately acquainted with all ways.
Yes, God knows. He knows my pain and He knows the day of my deliverance from this pain. He knows what is causing in and what it takes to heal it. For reasons only He knows, He hasn’t chosen to tell me and believe me, I have asked. Repeatedly.
Can I rest in His promises even I don’t have answers? Can I trust Him when the pain tells me – not today? Can it just be enough that He knows? Can I find peace in the midst of the pain? Can I just stop asking the questions and focus on my Healer and His promises?
God who knows the end from the beginning hasn’t lost track of me and my suffering and in His infinite, He has chosen the perfect day for my pain to come to an end. I don’t know but God does. And that’s good enough for me.
Infinite, All Powerful, All Knowing God thank You for noticing me. For knowing me as intimately as You do, for even desiring that kind of intimacy with me. Thank You for showing me what You are like through the person of Jesus Christ who healed people by Your power and in Your name. Thank You that my day of deliverance is written on Your calendar and You alone know that date. Help me to trust and be patient until that day that You deliver me in Jesus’s name. Amen.
Are you in need of healing? Can I pray for you/ with you? Please let me know.
If you have a healing testimony, I would love to share it.
