Clarity of Vision

Psalm 139:1-4 (NIV)

You have searched me, Lord,
 and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.

John 3:17 (NIV)

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

A strict disciplinarian threatens their child with a warning–"God sees everything you do, so you'd better be good!"  It is through paradox and maturity that we come to understand that the omniscience of God is not a condemnatory threat, but the most liberating of all things about God. He knows all there is to know about us–even our most closely held faults–and his love abides with us still.  We are thus set free despite a paralyzing past to be honest and confident within God’s love. In the final analysis, the omniscience of God is not about rejection, but about unconditional acceptance and the all-embracing induction of doable integrity.
