He knew what was in a man.
You can’t fool God: “O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.” (Ps. 139:1).
God is onto people who honor him with their lips, but don’t have their heart in it (Matt. 15:8).
He knows everything about you. Everything.
He even knows something about you that you probably don’t know about yourself: he knows what you can become. He sees people not only as they are—but as they can be.
He saw Matthew the swindler; but he also saw Matthew the messenger.
He saw Peter the traitor; but he also saw Peter the rock.
He saw Paul the murderer; but he also saw Paul the missionary.
He sees you the sinner; but he also sees you the saint.
He sees what you can become. And he likes what he sees.
Your life isn’t finished. Don’t put a
period where God puts a comma.
