Then why don't we just completely trust him, turn everything over to him, immeadiately ?
I wondered, when life comes at us so fast, we get blindsided by personal afflection, tragedy?

Then, I stopped and remembered my childhood, we lived  a sheltered life, and trusted in our parents, grandparents knowledge to provide for and shelter us and our every need.
We lived in a society, that had respect for others, respect for God and respect for our country.
We didn't have everything handed to us, we worked for it,saved for it.
We didn't have 24/7  access to everything, except God.
We knew, what it meant to have Sundays for church and family.
What it meant when someone said NO, (usually )it was for our own good.
We knew what it meant to be loved, unconditionally.
We had riches, we never really fully knew!!

I found a few bible verses to remind us that God knows everything,
our thoughts, prayers, our needs, desires , he knows it all!
I know we wonder then, if God knows it all, why does he allow~pain, sickness,
why does he allow war, death of a child. Why does he.....the list goes on and on~

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything" James 1:2-4.

Romans 11:33 - O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!   

There isn’t anything that God doesn’t know. God doesn’t have to learn anything.

God knows everything about creation. He knows everything because he created everything. Genesis 1:1-3, Colossians 3:16, Revelation 4:11

Think! God knows everything there is to know about elephants and insects, lions and lizards, giraffes and gerbils.   

God knows everything about the sun, moon, and stars.

God knows everything there is to know about medicine, psychology, the weather, building houses, keeping house, computers, engines, and everything else.

God knows everything about history and He knows at accurately.

The most astounding thing is how well He knows you and me. Psalm 139:1-7


O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!

There are many people who know much but don’t have enough sense to come in out of the rain.

Wisdom is the right use of knowledge.

And it is God in His wisdom who has made salvation a matter of grace and not works.

Ephesians 2:8-9

It is God in His wisdom who sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins.  Romans 5:6 No one suffered more, than Jesus, and he was pure,

It is God in His wisdom who has not only made salvation a matter of faith, but the Christian life also a matter of faith.  Hebrews 11:6

When we don’t know something, we know that God knows.

When we don’t understand what God is doing, we know that God is wiser than we are.

These qualities make God worthy of our worship.


By The Things We're Allowed To Go Through

There are seasons of life & sufferings of the heart
that God will allow for His own;
Where the pain is almost too heavy to bear
for the garden of tears that are sown.
But little do we know about the future itself
other than Christ will hold tight to the redeemed.
And that God will have a way of always being faithful
no matter how hard that it seemed.
For He brings us through trials to test our faith
and filter off what doesn't belong.
In the end we realize that God is truly God
and our weakness is what makes us strong.
God brings us through hardships that threaten to break us
to show us He is sovereign each day,
And to show us the hope of the King will deliver
when the current tries to sweep us away.
God will allow us to have desperate needs
to show us His perfect, provisional glory.
Then we walk away humbled...knowing He's in control
of each detail within our life story.
The pain God allows is never meant to break us
but to showcase what He alone can do;
When He takes us from heartache...to victory of the heart
by the things we're allowed to go through.
