Lesson 6 God Knows His Own

July 7, 2019


God intimately knows the hearts of His people.


The Lesson Overview


There are few desires more common to all humanity than the simple desire to be known and accepted by others. Yet many struggle with the thought of being fully known, for fear that others will reject them as a result. 

Psalm 139 explores the idea of being known in the most fundamental way: Every human being is fully known by God. For some, this is a source of fear; for others, a source of great comfort. As this lesson reveals, it is a matter of perspective. The believer knows that God is supreme Creator, and all-knowing (or, “omniscient”) Lord. He knows us because He made us. And as we examine Psalm 139, we find great comfort in knowing that He is always near to His people.
