He Knows Us Completely

Standard

How unutterably sweet is the knowledge that our Heavenly Father knows us completely.  No talebearer can inform on us; no enemy can make an accusation stick; no forgotten skeleton can come tumbing out of some hidden closet to abash us and expose our past; no unsuspected weakness in our characters can come to light to turn God away from us, since He knew us utterly before we knew Him and called us to Himself in the full knowledge of everything that was against us.  ~A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy

  1. This is the most free-ing thought, that He knows all there is to know, and loves us completely. His love is so perfect and unconditional.

    Love you Michelle, hope you’re well xo

  2. Yes, he does, Ric. 🙂

    That’s the way I felt when I read it, Birgit. Unconditional love…I don’t really know how to comprehend it. Blessings to you, Birg. I guess you’re home safe from your holiday. Your pictures are stunning…especially the ones inside the Grand Canyon. Love you, too. xo

  3. KNOWING this we SHOULD be able to break through the Lie that we need to hide things from others for them to still love us, or accept us.

    Shouldn’t we?

    All of us who claim to love God and follow Him and His Will should then find no reason to not love or accept anyone for what they ‘are’ or have done’ or have hidden or kept from us…

    Ouch!!! 😦

    Sometimes i see clearly just how far we all still have to go.

  4. “This comforts my heart many times.”

    Me too, Sparkle!

    “KNOWING this we SHOULD be able to break through the Lie that we need to hide things from others for them to still love us, or accept us…Shouldn’t we?”

    Should. I don’t like “shoulds” very much, Love. Yes, He does accept us through His Son. However, I’ve found most people are not as safe, as loving as Him. ‘Tis sad, but true…

  5. “no unsuspected weakness in our characters can come to light to turn God away from us”

    Wow, thank you so much Michelle, I needed to hear this today…

    Hugs~

  6. I was really happy to read that one too, Debs. God truly loves us not because of who we are, but because of who He is.

    Hugs to you!

  7. Wait, wait.
