God Knows Everything

Has it ever occurred to you that nothing has ever occurred to God?*40 simple truths

God has never had an A-ha! moment. He’s never said Eureka! It’s not that He’s never had an epiphany, it’s that He’s never had anything but epiphany!

That’s because God knows everything.

Not only that, He knows all of it at the same time.

I can name all 50 states and  but I have to ‘rack my brain’ a bit to recall them all. And while I’m working my way from Alabama to Wyoming, don’t ask me to also rattle off all of the NHL teams. I can’t ‘know’ both of those pieces of information at the same time.

But God can. And every other piece of information in existence. He’s also constantly aware of every opinion, every contrary opinion and the right answer to every question, simultaneously. (We should really change that word to sameultimeously, don’t you think?)

God knows everything, and that means He knows everything about you and he (gulp) knows everything about me.

And He loves us anyway.

Peace be with you.

* I did not come up with this quip myself. I heard it in a sermon a while back, and for the life of me can’t remember who gave the sermon. It appears to have been originally quipped by a pastor named Adrian Rogers. Whether this page is accurate or not, I want to make clear that I’m not trying to take credit for this great line.
