This is another passage that I know so well and so often skim over when I read it or hear it. "Yes, God knows all about me, let's move on," I'm tempted to say/feel/think. But when I really let these words dig deep into my heart they are so reassuring and comforting.
My Heavenly Father, the Creator of the universe, the sovereign Lord - cares enough to not only know what I'm doing and what I'm saying. But He knows ME - my inner desires, my sinful thoughts, and my future. Yes, He knows the paths He'll lead me down until He calls me home to be with Him.
Isn't that an awesome thought?! Like the worship song says, "Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name, Would care to feel my hurt?"
As you and I go through this study my prayer is that we will have a greater grasp of how DEEP our Father's love is for us and we will rest in His sovereign hands.
DISCUSSION: Where are you tempted to believe "God loves every part of me but THAT... "? How can you embrace that He knows THAT and loves you beyond comprehension anyway?
