“And God knew” three words that change everything

And God heard their groaning . . . God saw the people of Israel-and God knew

I just wanted to share a brief encouragement with you this morning that struck me reading in Exodus today. We do not serve a blind God. We do not serve an ignorant God. Nor do we serve an indifferent God. Whatever pain you are going through today, know this: GOD KNOWS.

When God knows he cares. When God cares he acts. Just as he saved his people from their suffering in Exodus he has acted to save us in Jesus. However long it may seem to take, however hard life may seem to get, you can take comfort from the sure and certain truth: God knows.

God will act to save you. Patiently wait for him. If you have to wait decades, keep trusting. This world is not our home. We can expect difficulties from time to time. But we can take courage form the fact that God is in the business of delivering us.

  • Thanks, just what I needed to hear. It’s not a huge problem in the grand scheme of things, but it is bringing me down. Comforting to know that our amazing God knows, cares, and will do something about it – in his own time of course.
    Thanks Adrian

  • Yep it’s Exodus 2 in the ESV

      Thanks Adrian, the thoughts you gave are good and applicable. My simple point was that the words you used ‘And God knew’ are not there…this is the quote from ESV ‘And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.’ OK, no big deal, New against Remembered, I just could not remember seeing the word NEW in Exodus and I was puzzled. Thanks all the same.
