O is for Omniscience

O is for Omniscience

Merriam Webster online dictionary defines it as:

: the quality or state of being omniscient

Omniscient is defined as:

1: having infinite awareness, understanding, and insight
2: possessed of universal or complete knowledge

I would come to the conclusion that a good definition of omniscience would be the quality of having unlimited, immeasurable or infinite awareness, understanding or knowledge or in simpler terms all-knowing.  There is only One who comes to mind and that would be Lord God, our Heavenly Father.  He knows all, from what is on our mind, to that sin we try to keep under the rug.  He knows and understands when we are shouting for joy or crying our eyes out.  He knows if we are weekend Christians or if He is first in our lives.  He knows!

‘Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.’    Matthew 11:29-30

It amazes me to think He knows when a sparrow falls to the ground, or how many hairs are on my head.  His love for us is beyond comprehension.

‘But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.’   Matthew 24:36

It is pretty obvious we cannot hide from God; He will find us, because He already knows where we are.  We cannot hide our doubts or fears He knows what they are.  Only He can give us the peace we desire and that home in Heaven.

until next time…nel


  1. I've always been amazed by that verse about the birds and the number of hairs on a person's head. Truly awesome! We're all special. :)

  2. I love serving a God who knows everything and cares about everything.
