…for the LORD searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts.

1 Chronicles 28:9

*          *          *          *          *

Our God Is Omniscient.

*          *          *          *          *

Which means: 

Our God has complete knowledge and understanding.

 *          *          *          *          *

First – of Himself.

Second – He, being Creator of all, 

He has complete knowledge and understanding from the stars throughout the universe to even the birds in the trees.

Psalms 147:4

Matthew 10:29

Third – (which is of utmost interest to each of us)

He perfectly knows all that is knowable about me and about you!

 Psalm 139

*          *          *          *          *


The Trinity exists in mutual love one for another and they have enjoyed an eternal friendship. 

As John Gill explains:

God knows Himself in all His persons, and each person fully knows one another:

The Father knows the Son, begotten by him, and brought up with him; 

the Son knows the Father, in whose bosom he lay;

and the Spirit knows the Father and the Son, whose Spirit He is, and from whom He proceeds;

and the Father and the Son know the Spirit, who is sent by them as the Comforter; 

*          *          *          *          * 


He has complete knowledge and understanding of His universe, 

from all the stars in His universe  

— even too all the sparrows alive today.

In Psalms 147:4,  King David says:

He determines the number of the stars 


calls them each by name.

Then in Matthew 10:29, to show how involved our God is in His creation,

even in the smallest details, Jesus says: 

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? 

Yet not one of them will fall to the ground 

apart from the will of your Father.

*          *          *          *          * 

Third –

He perfectly knows all that is knowable about me, about you! From the number of hairs on our heads, (Matthew 10:30,to the number of days we will live (Psalm 139:16.)  He also knows what is going on in our hearts and minds (Jeremiah 17:9-10,) every detail about us.

King David wonderfully captures this revelation about our God in Psalm 139: 1-6:

O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.  

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!  

How vast is the sum of them!  

Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. 

You know when I sit and when I rise; 

You perceive my thoughts from afar. 

You discern my going out and my lying down; 

You are familiar with all my ways. 

Before a word is on my tongue You know it completely, O Lord.  

You hem me in—behind and before; 

You have laid Your hand upon me.  

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, 

too lofty for me to attain. 

What amazes me is that my God knows absolutely everything about me and about you, 

yet it is going to take us all of eternity to learn all there is to know about Him.

My God, Our God is Omniscient.
