10 Things God Knows About You
“You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees,” said Hagar, the servant girl of Abraham and Sarah.
After a heated confrontation with her mistress, Hagar decided to run away into the desert.
Where she was all alone, afraid and distressed.
But, God met her there in that desert, in the midst of her pain and distress. He comforted her, encouraged her, and advised her to return to her mistress.
Hagar’s heart was touched that God cared enough to visit and help her, a lowly servant girl. She was so awed by him that she called him, “You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees.”
God is indeed the God who sees because He is omnipresent, meaning He is everywhere at once. The Bible says that He fills heaven and earth (Jeremiah 23:24) and that His eyes “run to and fro throughout the whole earth.” (II Chronicles 16:9)
Sometimes, you may feel all alone.
You may feel like no one sees or cares about your troubles.
No one cares about your accomplishments.
You might even think no one sees your wrongdoings.
But, the fact is, God sees everything. And, like Hagar, God cares about you no matter how insignificant you think you are to Him.
Check out the following Bible verses that show ten things God sees and knows about you.
1. God saw you before you were ever formed in your mother’s womb.
“For You formed my inward parts, You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.” (Psalm 139:13-16)
2. God sees and knows every move you make, every thought you think, and every word you speak.
“O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not one word on my tongue, but behold, You O Lord, You know it altogether.” (Psalm 139:1-4)
“For His eyes are on the ways of man, and He sees all his steps.” (Job 34:21)
3. God knows where you are no matter where you go, and He is there with you.
“Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there. If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.” (Psalm 139:7-10)
4. God knows every hair on your head.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” (Matthew 10:29, 30)
5. God sees and knows our secret deeds, whether they be good or bad.
“Am I a God near at hand,’ says the Lord, ‘and not a God afar off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shall not see him?’” (Jeremiah 23:23)
“But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.” (Matthew 6:3, 4)
6. God knows your heart.
“For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (I Samuel 16:7)
Others may judge your for what they see on the outside, but God knows your heart.
7. God sees your tears and knows when your heart is broken.
“Put my tears into Your bottle, are they not in Your book?” (Psalm 56:8)
“The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart.” (Psalm 34:18)
8. God knows your pain and suffering.
“Look on my affliction and my pain.” (Psalm 25:18)
“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.” Psalm 34:15
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:19)
9. God knows your sins.
“You have set our iniquities before You, our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.” (Psalm 90:8)
The thought of God knowing your sins is scary, but don’t be afraid. God is always ready to forgive if you ask him.
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9
10. God knows the plans he has for you.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
No matter where you are right now, God sees you. Yes, he knows your sins, your thoughts, and he knows what you did. He knows your fears, your worries, and your pain.
But, just as God wanted to help Hagar, God wants to help you.
Just as God advised Hagar to do the right thing, he wants to advise you to do the right thing.
Just as God comforted and encouraged Hagar, he wants to comfort and encourage you.
May you be blessed like Hagar.
