God is All Knowing
By Grant Van Leuven - Posted at Place for Truth:With the recent epidemic of weekly, if not daily, lethal shootings across the country, does your heart not cry out, “Is God paying attention?”
Do terrorist bombings, corrupt business and politics, death inducing dictatorships, and human trafficking around the world go unnoticed? Will the silent screams of millions of babies snuffed out in their mother’s wombs reach God’s ears? Will the martyrs ever have their cry responded to, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? (Revelation 6:9-10).
Ecclesiastes 5:8 assures us that these yearnings for justice do not evaporate into the atmosphere: If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they. The preacher acknowledges your heart’s cry over all the injustices plaguing the earth, and assures you that God Who is above all also sees them and will bring about just punishments upon the high and haughty oppressors of their poor victims.
God’s omniscience, the fact that he is “all knowing,” is reassuring. It is not only that He observes all but that He is keeping an account and will have a moral reckoning of all for their unjust actions.
