37 Question 4

Certainly the Lord knows everything as we read in 1 John 3:20, “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.”  Let’s look at the Lord’s disciples as they spoke to Him in John 16:30, “Now are we sure that thou knowest all things…”  Peter said to the Lord in John 21:17, “…Lord, thou knowest all things…”  Let’s look now at Isaiah 46:9-10, which says, “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.”  As proof that He is God, and there is not another, the Lord states that he declares the end from the beginning and that what He says will come to pass.  His will shall be accomplished.

Psalms 139:14-16 tells us, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”  What a remarkable verse.  Being ‘unformed’, or while we were in our mother’s womb without shape, the Lord knew us.  Amazing!  Before we even began to take shape; while we were still an embryo, the Lord knew us.  As each part of us began to take form the Lord was aware.  How precious is the thought that the one who saw and knew us even before we were born, will continue to watch us.  The one who knows the end from the beginning knows exactly what will happen to us today, tomorrow, even until the very day that He calls us home.
