My Father knows what I need, even before I ask Him

When we comprehend the completeness of God’s knowledge—His foreknowledge, in particular—it gives us the assurance that no matter what happens, God is never taken by surprise. There is no such thing as an emergency in the kingdom of heaven. Not only does God know the end from the beginning, but He Himself is both “the Beginning and the End” (Revelation 21:6). And He is always in total control.

God specifically knows those whom He has chosen to be with Him in eternity.

“For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Romans 8:29)

If, by the mercy and grace of God, we make it through to that glorious, eternal destination, Jesus will never greet any one of us with the words, “I never expected to see you here!” Rather, He will say, “My child, I’ve been waiting for you. We couldn’t sit down to the marriage feast until you came.” At that glorious banquet, I believe that every place setting will carry the name of the person for whom it is prepared.

Until the number of the redeemed is complete, God waits with amazing patience, “not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

Prayer response

Thank You, Father, that You know me completely. I proclaim that God is always in total control; He is never taken by surprise. My Father knows what I need, even before I ask Him. Amen.
