WHAT GOD KNOWS – all knowing (omniscient)
|Guts of you||Everything about you|
|Physical You||Mental you|
|Everything I do||Everything I say|
|In front (future)||Behind (past)|
But despite this:
- Hand of blessing – blows me away – too great to understand!
WHERE GOD IS – everywhere! (omnipresence)
|Can’t escape Spirit||Can’t escape presence|
|East to west at speed!||Furthest|
Hand will guide, strength will support – all powerful! (omnipotence)
YOU MATTER TO GOD
- Enough that He wants to spend time with you.
6 Week Challenge:
- Read a part of your Bible
- Ask: what does this make me think about?
- Write down something that stands out for you.
- At the end of the day, have a look over what you’ve written.
- Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,
- by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is His body,
- and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
- let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
- Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
- and let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds,
- not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
- In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
