Isaiah 46:8–11 (ESV)
8 “Remember this and stand firm, recall it to mind, you transgressors,
9 remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’
11 calling a bird of prey from the east, the man of my counsel from a far country. I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass; I have purposed, and I will do it.
God is all-knowing, or omniscient. As Isaiah states, God has declared “the end from the beginning”. Since God is infinite in all of his attributes, as we learned earlier, this means he is infinite in his knowledge and understanding. The depths of his knowledge can never be exhausted and there is nothing he is learning. He knows and understands all things.
We can sometimes wonder if God has forgotten us or if he does not know us at all. That is impossible with God! He knows us. In fact, he knows us better than we know ourselves! He knows everything that has ever happened to us as well as everything that ever will. And he knows the answer to all of our “Why?” questions. So, rest easy knowing that God knows you and everything there is to know about you. He loves you.
