Ultimate Jump! Worship - God is all-knowing.

God is all knowing! Now isn't that an intimidating thought? Each of us, to some degree, fools our friends and family about who we truly are. But it is impossible to do that with God. He know each of us, deeply and specifically. He knows out thoughts before we think them, our actions before we commit them, whether we are lying down or sitting or walking around. He knows who we are and what we are about. We cannot escape Him, not even if we want to.

Take a deep breath...let it out...read this slowly...When I grow weary of trying to be faithful and weary of avoiding the sin that so easily entangles me and I want a break, it doesn't come to a surprise to God. He knows.

For King David, God's knowledge led him to worship. He viewed it as wonderful and meaningful. He wrote in Psalm 139 that even in the darkness he couldn't hide from God; that while he was in his mother's tummy, God was there.

Hebrews 4:13 states, "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account." It is sobering to realize that this is the same God who is holy and eternal, the Maker of the billions of galaxies and thousands of tree species in the rain forest. This same God knows intimately all the wrinkles and creases in the back of our hands. This is the same God who takes the time to know all the little details about each of us. 

He does not have to know us so well, but He chooses to. His choice calms our intimidation and opens assurances for worship...may we declare His worth today - Don
