Know, Knew, Known

Good morning, all. I am going to talk to you about three B(b)eings today: God, you, and mankind. Look at the meanings given to the forms of the verb, "know."
Know - Possession of the facts (man-some facts) (God -all facts)
Knew - Possession of the facts prior to a given time (man-some facts) (God-all facts)
Known - Possession of the facts for a certain time span (man-some facts) (God-all facts)
Always Known - Possession of the facts and have had them since time or life began  (man-some facts for some time) (God-all facts for all times and before time ever was)!

Look at this little poem of mine. Don't get caught up on the difficulty level (if you find it difficult). When you really look at this poem, you will see that it breaks down knowledge for you. The scripture following it breaks down love for you and knowledge some more. When you finish reading the two poems and the verses from Psalm 139, you should be fortified and assured of the Lord God's love and protection for you.

I AM - Before knowledge was knowledge
Before the world was
                               -Alma L. Jones
         (The Lord God imparts knowledge where He will.)

139 Lord, you have examined me
    and know all about me.
You know when I sit down and when I get up.
    You know my thoughts before I think them.
You know where I go and where I lie down.
    You know everything I do.
Lord, even before I say a word,    you already know it.
You are all around me—in front and in back—
    and have put your hand on me.
Your knowledge is amazing to me;
    it is more than I can understand.
Where can I go to get away from your Spirit?
    Where can I run from you?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there.
    If I lie down in the grave, you are there.
If I rise with the sun in the east
    and settle in the west beyond the sea,
10 even there you would guide me.
    With your right hand you would hold me.
11 I could say, “The darkness will hide me.
    Let the light around me turn into night.”
12 But even the darkness is not dark to you.
    The night is as light as the day;
    darkness and light are the same to you.
13 You made my whole being;
    you formed me in my mother’s body.
14 I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way.
    What you have done is wonderful.
    I know this very well.
15 You saw my bones being formed
    as I took shape in my mother’s body.
When I was put together there,
16 you saw my body as it was formed.
All the days planned for me
    were written in your book
    before I was one day old.
17 God, your thoughts are precious to me.
    They are so many!
18 If I could count them,
    they would be more than all the grains of sand.
When I wake up,
    I am still with you.
19 God, I wish you would kill the wicked!
    Get away from me, you murderers!
20 They say evil things about you.
    Your enemies use your name thoughtlessly.
21 Lord, I hate those who hate you;
    I hate those who rise up against you.
22 I feel only hate for them;
    they are my enemies.
23 God, examine me and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any bad thing in me.
    Lead me on the road to everlasting way.

This final poem of mine delivers the final message of assurance to you today.

Live your life the best you can 
And always be mindful of your fellowman 
Don't worry about your enemy and 
What detriment he may have in his hand.

If you know the love of The Father you can 
Make the most of every day you see
You can find a tiny spark of laughter or
Look for a  tiny speck of glee.

And when you make a habit of this
Joy and happiness will seek you out
& you can smile in the in the face of adversity
Because you will carry these words with you
"The God of heaven looks out for and sustains me."

Doing What I  Can, While I Can,
Alma L. Stepping On Jones

Blog P.S. What problem do you think you have that He doesn't know about, knew about before you were born and already has the solution for in His plan for your life? All you have to do fellowmen is trust Him and stay close to Him. The rest He has in control and laughs at the outcome that He already knows. I am glad that He is my God and my Friend! Aren't you glad that He is yours?  
(Blue highlight in blog reminds you of a few things that He already knows.) Green highlight reminds me of the green pastures that He makes me to lie down in that are mentioned in the 23rd Psalm, the green for go on most traffic lights, and the green grass that continues to grow season after season assuring me that He is in control. all of that says to me, "Keep stepping on, Alma Jones!"

Question to you: With all of this knowledge that He has laid at our fingertips, what are you doing?
