I Know

I Know

29 August 2009


“I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can shut. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me.” (Revelation 3:8 NLT)

Each of the messages from Jesus to the churches in Revelation 2 and 3 begins with the phrase, “I know..” Six of the letters begin with, “I know all the things you do,” and one begins with “I know the things you have suffered.”

Jesus knows all the things I do. He speaks to me out of a complete knowledge of my thoughts, my attitudes, and my actions. Nothing is hidden from him, not even the slightest detail. Jesus knows all my thoughts, questions, doubts, fears, joys, and hopes. Jesus knows all my desires, my mistakes, my disappointments, and my successes.

Jesus knows all the things I do. Knowing all these things about me, he loves me with an everlasting unconditional love. Knowing all these things about me, he sets before me the privilege of living a life of value and purpose. Jesus loves me, this I know!

Jesus knows all the things I do. He knows all about me and he will encourage me, correct me, instruct me, and direct me in just the way I need for the season I am in and for the next steps of his purpose for my life. I couldn’t ask for better than that!


Father, today my prayer is the prayer of Jeremiah, “I know, Lord, that a person’s life is not his own. No one is able to plan his own course. So correct me, Lord, but please be gentle. Do not correct me in anger, for I would die.” (Jeremiah 10:23-24 NLT) Thank you for correcting me, comforting me, and keeping me. Thank you for my life. Amen.
