IN THE SPIRIT OF the British style of English; readers might be asking of this post’s title : “What in the world is old Cleetus going on about now?”
Have you ever thought in this manner? … What if a person could remember every day of his/ her life? … The details of every second, minute, hour, day, forming weeks, months, years, and a lifetime.
Having this ability might be beneficial, then again it might be maddening.
So… Let’s cut to the chase and ask the question, in the manner of the great Jeremy Brett, ( in my opinion the best Sherlock Holmes ever) “My dear Watson, what do we make of, or even begin to comprehend about an omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient God who not only created every human that has ever lived; but according to *Jeremiah 1:5, ( KNEW) all before they lived,” … *paraphrased, before I formed you in your mothers womb, I knew you, set you apart.
I don’t know about you dear reader but this question certainly comes to my mind … does the same apply about God knowing “every human before they lived” and what exactly does God mean by “knowing” someone before they live? … There are many schools of thought of which I will not go into right now.
My question is “What are we to make of this?”... Talk about some things being a mystery and us humans, “seeing through a glass darkly.”… Perhaps we will know someday.
All of us, supposedly, our every idle word known and available to God. It can be intimidating. The only comfort coming I guess, is in knowing that God is understanding, “just and fair.” Along the same lines, scripture says that if we confess our sins, God is faithful to never remember them. Fortunate for us.
My final thoughts tonight are, that God must be surely more magnificent and wonderful than our finite human minds could ever fathom. We must never forget that we are called to lives of faith and trust.
