Questions God Will Never Ask ~ Surprises
Greetings Dear Reader,
I become more certain every day that we do not really understand omniscience. When we say that God knows everything, I do not think we have thought through what that means and the implications. I will dig a little deeper than this but I want it to be clear. God will never ask you why you snuck something past him.
Let us dwell on omniscience for a moment. Here is a question I will ask you: Has it ever occurred to you that nothing has ever occurred to God? It is in light of this question that we unpack our understanding of an all-knowing nature. Consider all the things that you do that no one else knows about or is told.
The cookies we sneak, the shows we binge, and the office supplies we steal are all seen by God. Not only are they seen, but they were already known by God before you even thought of doing them. Everything you ponder has already been seen by the Father and he knows what you will think, choose, say, or do. He has already prepared his response and is waiting in the moment of it for you to arrive (that is called omnipresence).
The implications to this are vast. You see you will never surprise God with what you choose to do or say. He knows every secret and every thought. He has a response planned for everything and it is this: He is going to love you. He does love you in the constant now. His second response is that he commands me to love you and you to love me.
There is no situation in which the Father does not already know you fully and desire the very best for you. You will not, therefore, disappoint, hurt, or fail the Father. Those are human responses that we put on God to make him more like us. You cannot disappoint someone who already knows what you will choose.
It is in this knowledge that we stand in every moment, every grain of time that falls through the pinch. An all-knowing, always present, and all-powerful God wants you to find him loving you in every moment. He also wants you to figure out how to love him back Dear Reader. God will not be surprised if you do or do not. He will love you anyway. It is his nature. Perhaps we should try loving him and see how it works out.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a homeowner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
