Proverbs 15:11 NIV

“Death and Destruction lie open before the Lord — how much more do human hearts!” Proverbs 15:11 NIV

If you ever doubted the all-knowing nature of God, this verse addresses the question head on. Here, Solomon reminds us that God knows everything about what lies beyond (in the eternal realm) for those who deny and ignore Him in this life. But even more so, He knows the depths of our hearts today as they lay bare before Him. In this versea we see, in simple contrast, God’s complete knowledge of all the deep and hidden things in the universe and beyond. The intent here is to clarify and heighten our understanding of God’s complete awareness of our heart. Nothing – not your secret desires, thoughts, wants or sins – are hidden in the shadows of isolation in the depth of our dark places. They are all open and known to Him. The really good news is that He truly knows us better than we know ourselves. He understands our deep desire to please Him and fully know Him. And He stands ready, willing, and able to fulfill them. Today, recognize God’s complete knowledge of you, accept His grace, and walk in His redemptive power. #BeTheEdge
