Text: Matthew 10:2931
Topic: Why it's good that God knows everything about us
Illustration: A woman buys two parakeets, brakes suddenly on the way home, the cage falls to the God will be attentive to them.
1 Corinthians 10:13
Illustration: Sunukjian tells of his first pastoring job, where he felt constantly compared to his predecessor, Jim Border. When he heard Border might return to start another church nearby, he felt threatened. Border didn't come back, because "God knew I couldn't handle it."
God's knowledge is simultaneously all-encompassing and specific.
God brings only what in his omniscience he knows we can handle, so we can be confident in his goodness.
