Nothing is hidden from God. His knowledge of every
detail of anything and everything is complete. The
Psalmist said, "behold, O Lord, You know it all. (Psalm
139:4) Later in the chapter, David makes an invitation.
"Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and
know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any
hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way."
(Psalm 139:23, 24)
God doesn't need an invitation to look into our lives, but
we desperately need him to. He already sees, but we
can't always see. His knowledge of every part of our
lives is remarkable because he saw it all. And he can
reveal to us the things that he sees so that we can
confess, repent, be cleansed, and be healed.
God sees all that happens to us that shapes the way we
think, how we act, and how we react. Lest we think that
he is just looking through a cloud from a lofty position
like a disconnected monarch, we are assured that God
sees with an eye to help. (Psalm 46:1)
One important thing that God is looking for is a
willingness to acknowledge him and the salvation he
freely offers. David also wrote, "the Lord has looked
down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there
are any who understand, who seek after God". (Psalm
God is not ignorant of our troubles. He knows all about
each one and he is patiently waiting to love us through it
all. It is up to all mankind to join David in his cry to
God in Psalm 139:23, 24.
If we recognize just who Creator God is and his great
compassion for us, we won't try to hide and then blame
him for the feelings of abandonment. We will cry out to
him, "O God, see what happened to me! Help!"
God's eyes see deep into our lives. Sometimes we can
hide sin from others, but we can never hide from him.
John the Revelator said, "his eyes were like a flame of
fire". (Revelation 1:14) He does not condone sin in us.
His eyes burn with righteous anger. We are wise to not
follow the lead of Adam and Eve, but to confess what he
has already seen.
The greatness of God to see all, and yet reach out in
love, is beyond words.
