Know More of How Much He Knows You

"Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it." (Psalm 139: 6)

Did you know that God knows you?

He knows so much about you, and Psalm 139 is an integral Scripture to meditate upon:

"O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me." (v. 1)

He knows everything about you, but because of all that Christ Jesus did at the Cross, He does not see any sin in your life (Hebrews 8: 12).

"2Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off."

He knows where you sit and stand, which also speaks to the fact that He knows when you are sad and when you are happy. "Afar off" speaks to a foreboding event in our lives, but also a type and shadow of what Jesus Christ did for us at the Cross:

"Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off." (Genesis 22: 4)

Most commentators point out that "the place afar off" implies that Abraham saw a great event about to take place on Mount Moriah. Not the death of his son Isaac, but God's own Son Jesus Christ, who would die for all our sins.

A few verses down confirms this wonderful revelation:

"14And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen." (Genesis 22: 14)

"The Lord is Provision" because He  has given us His Son, and the more that you see Jesus, the more that you are transformed from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3: 18), as we live from faith to faith seeing more of Himself (Romans 1: 17)

We know that He has provided all things for us in Christ (Romans 8: 31-32), when we know and believe that He knows all that we need before we ask Him (Matthew 6: 8), that to know Him is to know that He knows us (Galatians 4: 9), then we reign in life in Christ (Romans 5: 17) and walk on high places (Habakkuk 3: 17-19)
