God’s Knowledge of Our Desires

Psalm 38:9

“Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.”

God knows every desire of every of His children. He knows all our desires. He also knows them even before we tell them to Him in prayer!

Even though we might fail to appropriately express our desires and our desperate needs to God, He knows them all. This is because He knows even our innermost desires before we articulate them in words.

Even if we become overwhelmed with emotions and fail to express ourselves clearly to God, He will still have full knowledge of our troubles and needs. If at any time, we could only sigh and groan before Him, even that groan will be directed to God as an effectual, fervent prayer.

Oh, what a comfort it is to be told by God’s Word that He knows all our thoughts, even when all that we could muster from our troubled soul is only a mere groan!
