Omniscience

No Creature is Hidden From His Sight

In the movie The Truman Show, Truman Burbank believes his life is no different from anyone else’s—until he begins to notice peculiar things happening, like instances that repeat every day. Then he gets suspicious that something strange is going on.

         What he doesn't realize is that every second of his life from the day he was born has been telecast live to the entire planet. He is the star of The Truman Show, the most popular television show in the world, which broadcasts every aspect of his life around the clock. From the moment he wakes up until he goes to bed at night, the world eavesdrops on Truman's life through the aid of five thousand hidden cameras. Finally Truman comes to the life-changing realization that an unseen audience is watching his every move.

Do you realize an unseen audience is watching your life, too? Not through television cameras, but through the eyes of God. Although we can’t see him, he is watching everything we do. “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do” (Hebrews 4:13).

God the Mathematician

How much does God know? 
Without a telescope you can only see about 3,000 stars from any point on Earth.  Scientists estimate the universe contains at least 70 sextillion stars (70-thousand-million-million-million).  That's 7 followed by 22 zeroes, or ten-times the number of grains of sand on earth.  Psalm 147:4 tells us God "counts the numbers of the stars; He gives names to all of them."
 
Not only that, but God counts the numbers of every hair on every person in the world. Jesus said, "Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered" (Luke 12:7).  If God knows that much, He certainly knows what you are going through right now. --Kent Crockett
