Acts 15:18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.
Here is a test for you today. Think back to when you were in sixth grade. You should have been around the ages of 10-12 years old. What were the craft items you made that year and brought home to your parents? What book reports did you write out that year? If you can answer those questions, (which if you are over 21, I doubt you can,) then answer this. Where are crafts and book reports right now and what condition are they in. Have you been taking care of them very well?
I know that sounds ridiculous. However, in looking at the difficulty we might have in remembering such simple items only a few years back, it may help us to see the absolute and abundant wisdom of God. He remembers it all. Everything and everyone that He has ever created are just as fresh in His mind as if it were today when that creation took place. Not only does He remember each creation, but He also knows exactly where each one is today and has been taking care of every need since the day of its creation. This is a very simple illustration of the omniscience, (all-knowing power) of God.
God knows everything about everything. This means He knows everything about YOU! How great it is to know we have a loving God who truly cares about us, and is watching over us every second of every day? He said He would supply our need and we can know He will because He sees every need before we have it. God enjoys knowing you, His creation.
In addition, dear child of God, more than just intellectually, God intimately knows you as well. He knows all your thoughts, your fears, your desires, and emotions. He truly knows you. Are you rejoicing today? Rejoice with Him. Is something bothering you today? Take it to the one who can really do something about it. Take it to God, the one who really knows you. Also, take some time today to get to know Him.
