Hope from the Truths of God's Word

What Was I Thinking?


With a simple search at, I found this:

Psalm 94:11
The LORD knows the thoughts of man; he knows that they are futile.

Psalm 139:2
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

Psalm 139:23
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

Jeremiah 12:3
Yet you know me, O LORD; you see me and test my thoughts about you

Matthew 9:4
Jesus knew what they were thinking, so he asked them, “Why do you have such evil thoughts in your hearts?

Matthew 12:25
Jesus knew their thoughts and replied, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A town or family splintered by feuding will fall apart.

Luke 6:8
But Jesus knew their thoughts. He said to the man with the deformed hand, “Come and stand in front of everyone.” So the man came forward.

Luke 7:40
Then Jesus answered his thoughts. “Simon,” he said to the Pharisee, “I have something to say to you.”“Go ahead, Teacher,” Simon replied.

Luke 9:47
But Jesus knew their thoughts, so he brought a little child to his side.


So, if God (Jesus and His Holy Spirit in me) knows what I am thinking – then why don’t I just talk to Him about my thoughts.

My friend Tami laughs and says that the two of us enjoy putting our thoughts and feelings out on the table and playing with them. Why wouldn’t I enjoy this kind of conversation with God?

Lord – thank You for this revelation of Your Truth. Please help me to feel safe enough to discuss my thoughts with you. Help me not to feel like I must figure things out and then talk to You about them.  I want to relate to You as a best friend.  Transform my thoughts into conversations with You.  Thank You in advance for Your help! 🙂
