The Message (MSG)
24God, your Redeemer, who shaped your life in your mother's womb, says: "I am God. I made all that is. With no help from you I spread out the skies and laid out the earth."
Knowledge to Build On
Our lives are an open book to God. He is all knowing. He is the beginning and the end. Its hard to imagine there is anything He has not seen. Anything we could do or say or go through that He has not seen before. The funny thing is that even the people in the bible try to hide who they are or what they have done and eventually come to the conclusion that He has been witness to all of it. Even from the start of our lives. When we were hidden in the darkness of our mothers womb he knew even that part of us.
Life in the Now
Today we live in a age where social media can take the happenings of our life and share it with the world. Our lives good bad and ugly can be out there for all to see. We can share our thoughts our photos even our gossip via our phone to a network of people we love, like or are just facebook friends with. Some things we are happy to share or even brag about. Other things we would rather others not post or tag us in. Knowing we have a loving God who sees it all we can sometimes write off the details of our lives as things he just knows because he is God. He has been there from the start. We don't need to tag Him in our facebook pics because He already knows. Or maybe we have things we would rather Him not know or not be tagged in.
In the process of living out my own life in a social media setting it occurred to me that God would love for me to make the effort to share my experiences my joys and my struggles with Him too. That yes He already knows all my business because He is God and omnipotent. However He would rather know because I told Him because He is my friend.
Think about it Are there times you are more excited to share good news with friends rather than God?
What would it look like for you to tell Him first?
God, Thank you for your love and grace. For longing to be our friend.
Remind us this week that you are ready to hear whats going on in our lives
the good the bad and the ugly
