God Knows Everything – Even the Future
Adventure 2: The Greatness of God
What does God know?
God is omniscient, which means He knows all things, even the secrets of our hearts. 1 John 3:20b – God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.
This Truth Makes
If God did not know everything, including the future, then He would not be an all-wise God. If we did not believe that God knows the future, we would begin to trust our own judgment and desires over His. Our selfish ways are never the best ways!
Proverbs 14:12 – There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
Many times in His Word, God assures people that He knows everything for certain – even the future. Look at Isaiah 42:9 –
Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
The reason God knows everything (past, present, and future) is that He is above time. The things that have happened in the past are just as real as the things happening right now. That is not how we humans can view time! It should be comforting to know that no matter where or when – past, present, or future – God is there.
