He is All Knowing

Psalm 139:1-6 (NLT)
For the Choir Director:  A Psalm of David.

"O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.  You know when I sit down or stand up.  You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.  You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.  You know everything I do.  You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.

You go before me and follow me.  You place your hand of blessing on my head.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!"
How reassuring it is to know that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, our God, cares about every single thing we do!  He has examined our hearts and He knows everything about us.  Everything--the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of our life.  Even when we are filthy in sin He stays with us.  He promises to never, ever leave us or forsake us.  What does that mean?  He won't turn His back on us when we disappoint Him, as we are so easily prone to do to others that have hurt us.  He won't abandon, discard, or disown us.  We belong to Him!  He treasures us.  He longs for us to know Him.
He knows our past and our future.  He is always with us.  Why?  Because He loves us!  To Him, we are His greatest workmanship.  We were not meant to be away from Him.  Until the fall of man, He enjoyed walking with His creation in the cool of the morning.  He took care in creating us, being delicate and deliberate. He crafted our brains to be so complex man will probably never figure out its detailed workings, yet He knows even our most inner thoughts! 
He has blessed us!  We are His children.  Sit back and take that in.  Just breathe it in, you are loved by the Most High God!  You are cared for by the Author of Salvation.  Bask in His glory for a while today and let Him know how grateful you are for His goodness!
