I Know Thy Faith (Revelation 2:18-19)

Introductory Thoughts

God knows everything about everything, yet Christians sometimes act as though He has some debilitating limitations. Once again, the Bible shines the light of truth upon the matter. It reveals that He is great, “and of great power: his understanding is infinite” (Psalm 147:5). In fact, His eyes “are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3). In other words, there is nothing that escapes the knowledge and attention of God. This includes the good and the bad! The Son of God proclaimed to the church at Thyatira that He knew their works, charity, service, faith, and patience. He too knows about the level of a man’s faith! He knows the content, strength, and reality of that faith. A man can and will fool others and frequently even deceives himself (Jeremiah 17:9), but he has no capacity to mislead God. The Lord knows those who believe and accept His word as the perfect word of God and He is not unrighteous to forget (Hebrews 6:10).

Devotional Thoughts

  • (For children): Jeremiah 16:17 says our ways are not hid from God's face. He sees what we are doing even when we think no one else sees us. We need to believe God's word and do right at all times because He sees everything all the time.
  • (For everyone): One day, all those who are saved will stand at the judgment seat of Christ to give an account of their lives. Perhaps one aspect of this account will address our level of faith toward the words of God. How will you fair under the Almightys scrutiny?
  • Does it bother you to know that God knows your level of faith? Does this realization make you want to increase in faith in order to please Him?

Prayer Thoughts

  • Ask God to give you a realistic view of your faith.
  • Pray that God will help you to have a real, strong, and lasting faith in Him.
