The Divine Knowledge of God

For Gospel-driven Disciples...

"Men would strip Deity of His omniscience if they could -- what a proof that "the carnal mind is enmity against God. (Romans 8:7) The wicked do as naturally hate this Divine perfection as much as they are naturally compelled to acknowledge it. They wish there might be no Witness of their deeds, no Searcher of their hearts, no judge of their deeds. They seek to banish such a God from their thoughts: "They consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness." (Hosea 7:2) How solemn is Psalms 90:8! Good reason has every Christ-rejecter (sic) for trembling before it: "Thou hast set our iniquities before Thee, our secret sins in the light of thy Countenance."

The apprehension of God's infinite knowledge should fill the Christian with adoration. (sic) The whole of my life stood open to His view from the beginning. He foresaw my every fall, my every sin, my every backsliding; yet, nevertheless, fixed His heart upon me. Oh, how the realization of this should bow me in wonder and worship before Him!

--A. W. Pink
Aren't you glad He has forgiven us of those deeds and thoughts by the blood of the lamb and placed them behind Him and that He will never remember them ever again? That is grace, truly amazing grace, grace that is greater than all my sin, wonderful grace of Jesus!
