I’m thankful that God is all-knowing. I may be able to fool those around me, but God knows everything about me. I can’t hide my shortcomings and offences from him, so pretense is useless. There’s true freedom in that, especially since my all-knowing God is also a God who forgives, something else for which I’m also thankful.
I’m thankful that because God knows everything, he can lead me and protect me and sanctify me. God knows what I need before I do, so he can answer my prayer before I ask it. He knows when I am in trouble and he has the power to deliver me. He knows where I am growing in sanctification and where I need more of his sanctifying work. God’s complete and infinite knowledge is a glorious thing!
I’m thankful for seeds sprouted in the garden and a nesting flycatcher in the hanging flower basket on the front porch. I’m thankful for the promise of four little eggs—so far. I’m thankful that God sends the rain for the garden and provides for the birds of the air.
I’m thankful for Thankful Thursdays, when I can post a few things I’m thankful for and read what others are thankful for, too.
