Today’s Scripture Reading: Revelation 3:1-6:17
Heavenly Father, I noticed something similar as I read John’s messages to the seven churches.
Ephesus—I know the things you do (Revelation 2:2).
Smyrna—I know about your suffering and your poverty. I know the blasphemy of those opposing You (Revelation 2:9).
Pergamum—I know you live in the city where Satan has his throne, yet you have remained loyal to me (Revelation 2:13).
Thyatira—I know all the things you do (Revelation 2:19).
Sardis— I know all the things you do (Revelation 3:1).
Philadelphia— I know all the things you do (Revelation 3:8).
Laodicea— I know all the things you do (Revelation 3:15).
Lord, You know it all! You must laugh at Your children for thinking You only know what we tell You. It reminds me of Adam and Eve…
At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.—Genesis 3:7
Adam and Eve thought fig leaves would hide their nakedness from You. Just like our ancestors, we don’t really, really, really believe You know EVERYTHING.
Lord, You see the good stuff, the bad stuff and everything in-between. You also see the injustice we endure.
Jesus, there’s a lot about me I wish You didn’t know but the great news for me is You know it all and still love me.
I’m in awe of that!
In Jesus Name. Amen and Amen!
