In the New Living Translation, it reads, “I am the one who searches out the thoughts and intentions of every person.”
I can fool people.
I can paste on a smile.
I can say yes when I mean no.
Most of us can, and frankly, we’re good at it.
Jesus reminds us that He sees through all that. All of it.
Immediately and completely.
He hears not only what I say, but what I don’t. Even more, He hears what I mean. He wholly knows my heart’s motivation.
When He reminds me of this, I so very thankful for His grace.
Because I am reminded how very much I need it.
