All In Devotional by Stacy Davis - God is Omniscient

Family Fun Icebreaker: What is your favorite wise saying?

Question: How is God Unique?

Today’s Big Idea: God is Omniscient

God is unique because He is omniscient, which means that God knows the past, present and future at the same time. The smartest person in the world is very limited in knowledge compared to God. God’s ability to see far is beyond anything you can imagine or understand. God’s knowledge is vast and personal. He knows everything, from how to create a galaxy to the details of you and your life. He knows your thoughts and the words you are going to say before you have formed them on your tongue. He knows when you move, where you go, or the expression on your face. He also knows the best plan for your life. He is not limited by or bound to time like you are. Sometimes, when life suddenly changes direction, God leads you on a different path because His infinite wisdom allows Him to see the big picture.

Talk with God: Read the scriptures aloud.

"You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD." Psalm 139:2-4 NLT

"He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!" Psalm 147:4-5 NLT

"Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God. Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything." 1 John 3:19-20 NLT

Walk with God: Read aloud and discuss.

It can be both intimidating and comforting to be in a relationship with someone as smart as God. There is no point in lying to God, which removes the pressure of perfection. God loves you despite your wrongdoing. He still desires a relationship with you, even though He knows the truth of your actions.

Discuss with your family: How is it helpful to have a relationship with someone that you will never be able to lie to?

Prayer suggestion: Pray for God’s help to trust His wisdom.

I will be praying for you!
