God Knows

Never believe the lie that God doesn't know what's going on in your life. He knows. He not only knows what's happening, He knows your every thought. (Ps. 139) The Lord proved to me this evening that He knows even things that we ponder out of curiosity. He is the ever-present Lord! Lean closer in to Him. Quiet yourself and allow Him to speak to your heart as you "pour out your heart like water before the Lord". You can trust Him with your thoughts, your hurts, disappointments, all your "stuff". Just tell Him all and then wait on Him. He is our Prince of Peace, our Counselor, our Everlasting Father. He is the God who forgives all your sins, heals all your diseases, redeems your life from the pit, and crowns you with love and compassion. He satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. I want that kind of renewal, and He wants that kind of renewal for me. It comes as we walk in close fellowship with Him. What better thing do you have going right now? For me, I don't have anything better. "For me it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge." (Ps. 73:28, NIV)

Somehow commenting isn't working with my phone. My sentences keep repeating and then not allowing me to type. I need you to know how much I've been blessed by your verses on panic and anxiety. I've printed them to read aloud. And I've shared them with friends. This week has been exceptionally rough. And your post today just spoke to my heart. Thank you for listening to the Father and posting such encouragements.

Praying God's grace and peace in abundance for you, Kristen, and that He reveals Himself to you in a very personal way.
