My God is…Understanding 1 Chronicles 28:9

1 Chronicles 28:9 – And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with

wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.

Lord searches every heart

There is no one who knows me better than God. There is no one who knows you better either. He searches every heart. Romans 8:27-28 reads, And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Understands every desire and every thought

He knows all our dreams, wants, fears, sins and successes. He knows our potential as well. But knowing it isn’t the whole story. He understands every thought and every desire. He gets me. And He gets you too. He understands. He knows your whole history. Everything you’ve gone through, all the pains, all the challenges and all the wonderful things that have happened as well. He loves you and wants to have a relationship with you.

If you seek him, he will be found by you

So who wouldn’t want to know someone who gets them better than anyone else. The one who can be there, understand and know what you’re really going through. God is the best friend we could ever have. He knows us, and understands us. How many of us at one time or another said, “I wish someone understood what I’m going through.” We do, and God promises if we seek Him, He will not be hidden from us. We will be able to find Him. He wants you to find Him. He wants to have a true relationship with you.

But if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.

This isn’t a fun part of the verse. People don’t like that God would reject someone, but who did it first. If you forsake Him, He understands you still. But He will reject you. There is hope though, because the moment you confess your belief in Him, He is found. Even if you have forsaken Him before, because you didn’t remain in that, He will be found by you. He understands you.

Do you want someone to truly understand you?

My God is … the Alpha and Omega Rev 1:8

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8

Few things in life are consistent

Who can you count on? Friends? Family? I rely on my husband and my parents a lot. I trust them and look to them for guidance when I’m questioning what to do. But guess what, sometimes when I need to talk to them, they’re not available. They could be in meetings, on the phone (my parents don’t have call waiting!), or they could be out doing something wonderful for the community. But I need them. I wanted them to be there for me.

I’ve been there

One of the reasons I go to my parents and my husband with my problems is because they’ve been there. They’ve experienced some of what I’m going through. However, sometimes I don’t feel like they get me, like they truly understand what’s going on in my head.

God has seen it all

No matter what I’m going through, God understands. He has seen it all. When He came to earth in Jesus Christ, He experienced the pain and suffering I think is so unique to me. He’s dealt with people who didn’t see His potential. People who only saw what he was on the outside. He get’s it. He gets me. He understands losing someone close to you, watching someone he loves being in pain, he understands being frustrated at the injustices of the world.

When nobodies home, God will still answer

I’m working hard to keep my focus on the one, the only one who can truly understand me fully. The one who created me and loves me no matter what. And even if no one else is home to call when things are going badly, Jesus is always there for me to call on, today, yesterday and tomorrow.

Who do you call when trouble hits?
