Omniscience is the state of knowing everything. There are people who think they know everything, including the thoughts occurring in someone’s head. That’s just not possible. Only the person thinking the thoughts can know the thoughts. Unless he chooses to reveal them to someone. Otherwise, they remain his sole property.

One of the greatest honors in my life is when someone shares their innermost thoughts. I carry those secrets like precious treasures, guarding them carefully.

God also reveals secret and hidden things to those who receive the free gift he offers. He does this through his Spirit in our lives.

10But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 11No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. 12And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.

1 Corinthians 2:10-12

This is a beautiful aspect of partnership with God that he shares his deepest secrets. And what is that deepest secret?

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

1 Corinthians 2:9

Go ahead, read that again. Meditate on that secret for the day and see what it stirs up in you!
