God knows

1 John 3:20 (NLT)
Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.

This past Monday night was our The Community Fellowship leadership team normal meeting.  We had a great time together dealing with the life of the church.  Some things are some, some are sweet but it is awesome to be part of what God is doing.  It was a good meeting.

We ended the night by having communion together and meeting around the cross.  I shared some things from the perspective of a father and his child maybe similar to what God our heavenly father thought as his son, Jesus, went to the cross and was murdered.  All of that was for our salvation, our destiny and by God's grace.

Each team member was asked to take a small piece of paper and write on it one of the things in their life that brought darkness in and kept light out.  These are always powerful moments for me and our team as we ask God to deal with us personally.  Each was put on the cross as a confession.  I have been praying through these items especially the one that God is dealing with in my life.

One of those put on the has stuck in my mind and struck me when I first saw it.  The note simply said, "you know."

Yes, God knows.  He knows my heart.  He knows my weakness and my strength.  He knows when I lie or when I am depressed.  He knows when I faking my way through the day.  He knows when I am excited.  He knows it all.

I have sat and prayed through and thought through this note.  "You know" is a huge thought that we need to come to Jesus with.  When we confess our sin, He forgives it (see 1 John 1:9).  Plus what we confess doesn't surprise God.  He knows already.  He knows it all.

It is time to get honest.  We can't fool God.  Tell God today "you know" my struggle and I hand it completely over to you!  That might just free you from some tough things you are struggling with today.  Why?  Because God knows it already and wants to work in our lives.  Let Him work.
