I know

For we do not have an high priest that cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities ; but one that has been in all points tempted as we are; yet without sin (Heb 4:15)

This post is inspired by a statement by Mike DeVries, and he says that there are perhaps no two more powerful words than the words “I know.”  Think about it, how we long to hear the words I know.  Sometimes amidst my pain, I truly long for the words ‘I know’ and I am sure you do too.

I know what you’re going through.

I know what it is like.

I know how you are feeling.

I know.

We all long to believe that there is someone, anyone, who knows what it is like – who knows what we are going through. And truly, when we do find that someone that truly knows, it makes a huge difference and changes everything. About two thousand years ago, in Bethlehem of Judea, God did something revolutionary. He did something beyond what anyone could have ever dreamed or imagined. Jesus became the incarnation of God, the visible form of God in a very present and physical way and through Jesus, we celebrate the reality that God knows and cares enough about people that He chose to dwell among us. In Jesus, the Word comes to dwell among us.

In the words of Don Moen:

‘He walked where I walk,

He stood where I stand,

He felt what I feel…

He understands…’

In the birth of Jesus, in the incarnation of God, we find a large message from God to you and me: I know…

I know what you’re going through.

I know what it is like.

I know how you are feeling.

I know.

He knows1

So wherever you find yourself today, no matter what circumstances you may find yourself in, know that there is a God who knows. Feeling alone? He knows. Feeling overwhelmed? He knows. Feeling as if you just cannot go on? He knows. Feeling like there is no one who understands? He knows. He’s been there too.

And guess what? He does not just know for ‘knowing’ sake, He is actually touched and moved by His compassion to act.  Do you remember the times the Bible records that Jesus was moved with compassion. He ALWAYS acted. He is not saving our information as ‘gist’ for future ‘I told you’s’ or ‘mockery.’  It is a matter of knowing that as long as God knows, everything is going to be OK. Take that to the bank. Does God know? If He does, ALL is well.

Trust Jesus, He knows. He knows. He knows.

May we all truly come to know that Jesus knows.

God bless you

  1. Hallelujah! This is such a blessing to me right now when it seems like my support structure is shaky, everyone moving on with their lives.

    It’s good to know that I’ve got a best friend who knows better than even me.

    Funny enough I was thinking a while ago about how many times I got spanked for saying ‘I know’ in the middle of instructions from my elders sisters and how powerful those words can be. Come here to catch up and it’s the first thing I see. Lol

  2. Very encouraging words. Knowing that He knows. You should consider posting on facebook. That is where the people are. You should meet them there like Jesus came to meet us here. Thank you.

  3. Thank you for this…I belive in my heart that God really cares for each and every1 of us,because God is love and he is patient so no matter what is happening in my life I know he cares.

    1. Dear Atiya, God bless you. Be encouraged and know that God cares all about you, He is there for you and He knows. Every tear of yours He has in a bottle. You are never alone. God knows and He understands.
