Study Guide #6—God All-Knowing


By Kay Smith and Ruth Wood

Think about how all-knowing is different from being present everywhere. Imagine if God could be near me but not know my thoughts or have the capacity to know the future. If that were the case, even if you couldn’t get away from Him, you could fool Him.

l. Review what characteristics of God we’ve studied so far and give a short definition.

2. Let’s take a look at how much God knows. For each of the following verses, write down (1) what they tell us God knows, and (2) what implications that could have for the world and for us.

I Samuel 23:10-13

I Chronicles 28:9

Psalm 90:8

Psalm 139:2-4

Psalm 147:4-5

Isaiah 44:6-8 (for an example: Genesis 15:13-16)

Matthew 10:29-30

Ephesians 1:4

Hebrews 4:13

3. Are there areas of your life that you wish God didn’t know about? Since He does anyway, why not talk to Him about them?

4. What areas of your life are you glad God knows about?

5. As you think about the world in general, what things (facts, solutions to problems, moral or theological questions) seem totally incomprehensible to you?

6. Do you believe God knows the true answers to those questions? Whether you do or not, why not talk to Him about it?
