COME JUST AS YOU ARE

_Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom._ *Psalm 51:6

It is estimated that in a lifetime, the human brain can store one billion bits of information.
Literally, everything you’ve seen, heard, smelt, tasted and felt is still stored in your brain. That is a lot of information in our heads. Yet, with all that capacity, we still forget a lot of things. Many times we are unable to recall a name ten seconds after hearing it. We forget people we just met. That is a human limitation. Thankfully, we have a God who remembers.
God remembers everything—at all times. There is never a lapse in His memory. He never forgets a person or a name. God is omniscient, which means He knows everything. God’s knowledge is as eternal as He is. What God knows now, He has always known and always will know. God doesn’t learn new things; He knows them from the beginning. And He doesn’t forget what He has learnt like we do. We learn new things, but God never does.
The great news is that this awesome God is our Father. He knows everything that happens in His creation. He knows the things that stress you out. He knows your fears. He knows your anxieties about life. He knows your secret sins. He knows your hypocrisy. He knows your insecurities. There is nothing to hide from Him.
God wants you to talk to Him honestly. He wants sincere prayer from His children. Don’t pray with pretension. Today, you can come before Him just as you are and ask Him to help you live the life that He wants you to live.

_*Prayer:* Lord, You know all things. I come before You just as I am._

*Scriptural Reading:* Psalm 51:1-19

1 Have mercy upon me, O God

2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions

4 Against You, You only, have I sinned

5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity

6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean

8 Make me hear joy and gladness

9 Hide Your face from my sins

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God

11 Do not cast me away from Your presence

12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
