“O LORD, you have searched me and known me!” – Psalm 139:1
Recently, there has been a game of sorts on Facebook. A friend gives you a number and you are to list that many things about yourself your finds may not know about you.
Many folks list little known facts about their birthplace and places they’ve lived, some list fears dreams, others don’t list much that isn’t generally known by their closest friends.
I was thinking on this and wondered what would happen if we put the real secrets of our lives up there? What if I put my real fears up there? Would people exploit those fears? What is we put our real dreams? Would others laugh? What if we put those facts from our past we don’t tell anyone? Would our friends think less of us?
The Bible tells us God knows ALL of those things and loves us anyway. He doesn’t exploit our fears, He calms us. God knows our past and our brokenness and offers us grace to complete and restore us to hope and strength in Him. He knows our dreams and has even greater plans for us than we can ask, think, or imagine.
God knows us better than we know ourselves and He loves us. He loves YOU. My prayer for you is that you will trust Him. Receive His love and grace in its fullness
