“God knows all things.” His divine mind is conscious of, and conversant with, the thought of all creation. His knowledge of events is universal and perfect. The divine entities going out from Him are a part of Him; He who “balances the clouds” is also “perfect in knowledge.” “The eyes of the Lord are in every place.” Said our great teacher of the insignificant sparrow “one of them shall not fall to the ground without my Father’s knowledge,” and also, “The very hairs of your head are numbered.” “He tells the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names.”
Our Universal Father is the only personality in all the universe who does actually know the number of the stars and planets of space. All the worlds of every universe are constantly within the consciousness of God. “l have surely seen the affliction of my people, I have heard their cry, and I know their sorrows.” For “The Lord looks from heaven; He beholds all the sons of men; from the place of His habitation He looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth.” Every creature child may truly say: “He knows the way I take, and when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” “God knows our down sittings and our uprisings; He understands our thoughts afar off and is acquainted with all our ways.” “All things are naked and open to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” And it should be a real comfort to each of us to understand that “He knows your frame; He remembers that you are dust.” Jesus, speaking of our living God, said: “Your Father knows what you have need of even before you ask Him.”
God is possessed of unlimited power to know all things; His consciousness is universal. His personal circuit encompasses all personalities, and His knowledge of even us lowly creatures of this world, is supplemented: indirectly through the descending series of divine personalities assistant in our ascension to God, and directly through the indwelling Spirit Being that right now indwells your human mind, which is a fragment of God Himself. Furthermore, God is all the time everywhere present-and therefore never is He subjected to surprise.
Omnipotence does not imply the power to do the nondoable, the ungodlike act. Neither does omniscience imply the knowing of the unknowable. But such statements can hardly be made comprehensible to our finite mind. As lowly creatures, hardly can we understand the range and limitations of the will of our Spiritual Creator; but we can and must understand that His range and the limitations of His will do include our eternal destiny.
