O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
Do you get the feeling that no one really knows you?
They know your name, but not your needs; your face, but not your feelings; your history, but not your heart.
Do you have a disoriented feeling that you don’t even know yourself?
Good news! God knows you like no human can. Psalm 139:1-4 sketches the scope of his knowledge: he knows when you sit and when you stand; knows what you think before you think it, and what you say before you say it.
He knows your hurt and your hunger; your fear and your faith; your sin and your struggle; your guilt and your goodness.
God knows you through-and-through.
And loves you from A to Z.
