The absurdity of uncertainty found in the Omniscience

…I can inform thee of nothing…”

Did you read that?

I can inform Thee of nothing…”

As in absolutely zero…the absence of anything and everything…

As in….
What can be said that is not previously known?
What single thought can be pondered that has not been previously revealed?
What emotion can be felt that has not already been felt?
What “oh by the way, I meant to tell you _____”
with the blank having long been filled in eons before one even learned to speak…?

No “by the ways”
No “I meant to say”
No slipped out “my bad”….
has ever passed without a prior knowing long before it was ever first thought or uttered…

Wrapping thoughts and minds around everything ever done and all things ever said, thought or felt…
knowing that all that was and is and will be…has already been seen and is known now and always by one and only One…

No secrets
Nothing hidden
Nothing private

For the One who has always been.. is that close…to you

You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

Psalm 139:1-6

    My favorite Psalm. It remind me of my total dependence on God and how He willingly and lovingly cares for His creatures.

    I find it so amazing that God knows absolutely everything about me and yet God loves me unconditionally! How blessed we are.

    • I know—knowing that everything I say, even before I say it, think it, do it….it is already known—some in our naysay world would say that is such and invasion of privacy but I find it such an amazing almost incomprehensible comfort that He is so utterly close—it’s almost hard to grasp–such that it almost slips away from the limited brain 🙂

        It is truly a mystery to the human brain for we cannot fathom such love nor the reason why God would choose to love us. Some day we will meet our Lord face to face – the thought brings tears to my eyes. Blessings to you my friend!

  3. There is such awe and intimacy wrapped up in this truth. To be in the presence of such all-encompassing knowledge can be frightening or in the very least leave us in distant awe, but to be both known and LOVED deeply by such a one is the heart’s deepest longing. Beautifully written and a moving reminder!

  4. One of the things I love the most about you is that you write these incredibly profound things and you also have such a great sense of humor and use it to also make amazing posts. I love, love, love this one. 🙂 ❤
