Does God know all things?
Yes. Nothing can be hidden from God.
Think of the smartest person you’ve ever met, someone who just seems to know everything. Compared to God, even the greatest genius on Earth would seem as dumb as a rock! Earth’s biggest brainiacs know a lot of things, but God? He knows everything there is to know! There’s not a test in the universe that our all-knowing God wouldn’t get an A+ on! But God’s incredible understanding goes far beyond the things you study in school.
There’s not a single secret we can keep from God. He knows everything about us – including all the worst bits! That can be a scary thought. How could someone who knows all of our dirty secrets (even the ones from our futures!) possibly still love us? But here’s the good news – God knows all those things, and he still loves us anyway! We should be thankful that our omniscient, all-knowing God is also a loving and forgiving God!
QUESTIONS TO TALK ABOUT
+ Read Luke 12:6-7. What things does our all-knowing God keep track of? If he keeps track of these small things, what does that tell us?
+ God knows everything about our futures. How should that affect the things we worry about?
1 Chron. 28:9; 2 Chron. 16:9; Luke 12:6, 7; Rom. 2:16
