Who is God – Day 11

1 Samuel 2:3

Do not keep talking so proudly or let you mouth speak such arrogance, for The Lord is a God who knows and by Him deeds are weighed.

The Thought

El-Deah is the Hebrew name of this aspect of God’s character; God who knows or God of knowledge.

It is often a scary concept to think that God knows everything; what we think, what we want before we ask, all that we do, both good and bad. All that 24/7! Remember that He never sleeps.

Romans 11 closes with a declaration of the greatness of God, and from verse 33 we are given a challenge to believe in the vastness of Almighty God. Those verses begin with emotion: Oh the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God. How unsearchable His judgments, and His paths beyond tracing out (Romans 11:33)!

There were many instances when Jesus showed that He had supernatural knowledge. He saw Nathanael under the tree before He met him (John 1:47-48). He knew the history of the woman at the well (John 4:5-26) and He knew that Thomas had doubted His resurrection (John 20:24-29).


Think today about those intellectuals, scientists and politicians, as well as many other people who think they have obtained knowledge by their own hard work. Yes it needs study and effort to learn and remember, but it is God who gives the facts and makes these things possible. He is El-Deah God who knows.

Look at one or more of these passages mentioned today and be blessed and encouraged to know that God is in full knowledge of what you are doing, even what you are thinking.

Maybe there are things you do that you were prefer Him not to see, in that case be quick to repent and move into His blessings.
