Proverbs 15:11 “Death and Destruction lie open before the LORD— how much more do human hearts!”

There is nothing hidden from the Lord. Even death and destruction hold no secrets from our God. So, how much more does He know the intricacies of our very hearts. God knows your heart. What a comforting thought. Sometimes I don’t even know what is going on inside my heart, but God does. Every longing, every hurt, every triumph, He knows. Each time my heart wanders from devotion to Him, He knows. Each time I run back towards Him with joy, He knows. He knows when you feel alone and when you feel like being alone. He knows how you’ll respond to words spoken to you. He knows the impact a song, a movie, a conversation will have. Our hearts are laid bare before this loving God of ours.

Lord, you know what’s in my heart right now. The good and the bad. Thanks for not turning away from me when my heart isn’t right. Thanks for caring about the hurts I feel. Thanks for encouraging me when I need to be lifted up. Thanks for celebrating with me when things are going well. I enjoy that closeness and intimacy that we share. I’m so thankful that you know me and still love me. Help me not to hold you at arms length when I need you to be holding me close. My heart is yours. Thanks for taking care of it.
