| One of the
characteristics of the letters the Lord sent to the seven churches of Asia
was His repeated statement how He knew about them. "I know thy
works..." was a comment made to each of the churches. The view they
had about themselves was not always the accurate view. But the Lord know
what they suffered, what challenges they faced, what good things there
were about them, and what they needed to do to make corrections where
It is the same today. Our Lord is not only aware of us, cares for us, provides for us, loves us, but also is knowledgeable about us in every detail, individually and collectively as congregations.
It is sobering to remember that the Lord knows about us, seeing every action and knowing every motive. But is it not also comforting to know that He knows? As our High Priest (Heb. 4: 15) He is capable of handling our needs as He deems best. We are so blessed with such a One as He.
