He Knows

“And God heard their groaning…and God knew.”
Exodus 2:24-25 ESV
What are the things you need to know God knows, today?
What burdens do you carry as you kneel to pray?
Take comfort, friend, in knowing He already sees;
And He’s right there beside you as you hit your knees.
And He not only knows, friend, but He also cares.
When you’re deep in a trial, He’s already there.
No one but Jesus truly knows your greatest need.
That’s why His Spirit’s there, my friend, to intercede.
He knows your need. He feels your pain. He cares for you.
So trust Him now; and see what, in His love, He’ll do.
He’s working out the best for you, just watch and see.
His blessings stretch from now into eternity.
But be prepared, my friend; sometimes His answers come
In ways you won’t expect.   You’ll wonder what He’s done.
But in the end, you’ll find your faith in Jesus grows
As He reminds you that He sees. He cares. He knows.
“Then the Lord said, ‘I have surely seen the affliction of my people…
I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them’”
Exodus 3:7-8a ESV
