This My Lord Knows

“I know their sorrows.”-Exodus 3:7

The child is cheered as he sings, “This my father knows”; and shall not we be comforted as we discern that our dear Friend and tender soul-husband knows all about us?

He is the Physician, and if He knows all, there is no need that the patient should know. Hush, thou silly, fluttering heart, prying, peeping, and suspecting! What thou knowest not now, thou shalt know hereafter, and meanwhile Jesus, the beloved Physician, knows thy soul in adversities. Why need the patient analyze all the medicine, or estimate all the symptoms? This is the Physician’s work, not mine; it is my business to trust, and His to prescribe. If He shall write His prescription in uncouth characters which I cannot read, I will not be uneasy on that account, but rely upon His unfailing skill to make all plain in the result, however mysterious in the working.

He is the Master, and His knowledge is to serve us instead of our own; we are to obey, not to judge: “The servant knoweth not what his lord doeth.” Shall the architect explain his plans to every hodman on the works? If he knows his own intent, is it not enough? The vessel on the wheel cannot guess to what pattern it shall be conformed, but if the potter understands his art, what matters the ignorance of the clay? My Lord must not be cross-questioned any more by one so ignorant as I am.

He is the Head. All understanding centres there. What judgment has the arm? What comprehension has the foot? All the power to know lies in the head. Why should the member have a brain of its own when the head fulfils for it every intellectual office? Here, then, must the believer rest his comfort in sickness, not that he himself can see the end, but that Jesus knows all.

Sweet Lord, be Thou for ever eye, and soul, and head for us, and let us be content to know only what Thou choosest to reveal. ~C.H. Spurgeon

  1. Ok I agree the Word is clear the article I talked about is in the post did you see it? Somehow it started out and as a post about the 144,000 to Bible Prophecy and the the Pre Tribulation Rapture I think the Holy Spirit did that you and I know He did.


    • Don’t apologize! Its hardly a rant. I don’t know that I handle them well but I do try to stick with Scriptures when addressing their behavior. One lady came into this site and meanly accused me of being arrogant because I’m a “Calvinist.” I told her her behavior was hardly one of a loving rebuke. Then I left a scripture or two concerning malicious talk and such. If you feel you are getting ready to blast someone hold off on answering or just don’t say anything. Sometimes silence can be golden. It may make them do their research!

      Have a blessed night! \o/
