God Knows

I absolutely adore flying in an airplane. There's something special about being up in the clouds, a little closer to Heaven than when both feet are on the ground. And knowing that the Lord could come back in any one of those clouds at any moment is a comforting thought.

It's so amazing to watch the ground get smaller after take-off and see miniature communities out the window. The best part of the flight was after the sun set. All the porch lights came on and there were thousands of head lights from the little cars.

That's when it starts to set in - God knows the hearts of every single person in every one of those houses. He knows the life of everyone driving those cars. We must have flown over hundreds of different cities packed with people - people that I will probably never meet, sit down and talk with, or ever get to know.

But God knows. He knows every tiny detail of their lives. He knows if they're saved, all about their families and where they are in their walk with Him.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11

That expected end is one of a future and a hope. God has already intertwined our hearts and our lives together in a way to honor and glorify Himself. We just have to be willing to accept whatever circumstances come across our paths.

The Lord may have already decided to let me meet one of those people we flew over the other day. I might have a wonderful friendship with a woman whose porch light was on, or I might never see any of them until we get to Heaven. Only God knows how our separate roads will be traveled.

The miracle is that while God is working in the lives of all those millions of people that I've never met, He's also working in mine. That''s the beauty of an omnipotent, omniscient God. He may be working miracles in the lives of women all around the world, but He still knows my name, the condition of my heart, the number of hairs on my head and the needs in my life.

God knows me. And He knows you.
