Prayer Challenge- Day 26

Day 26

Name of God to proclaim and focus your worship to: El De’ot; (ale: day-aw’) -The God of Knowledge

This name is found in 1 Samuel 2:3 “for the LORD is a God who knows” which was being sung by Hannah when she took her son, Samuel, who God had miraculously given her, to the temple to serve. She was shouting at her enemies (maybe those who had ridiculed her for being barren) not to boast, because Yahweh is a God of knowledge. She goes on to say “For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s; on them he has set the world. He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness”. (Verses 8-9) She had learned that the God of Knowledge is a God who can be trusted.

Like Hannah, you must realize that God knows everything (1 John 3:20). He knows every detail of your life down to the smallest part. Plus, He knows your thoughts, even before you speak (Psalms 139:4). He knows your heart from afar; and knew you before you were born (Psalm 139:1-3; 15:16). So you are fully known, yet truly loved! Timothy Keller says “To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God”

Scripture Promise to claim: Luke 12:6-7 “What is the price of five sparrows–two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.

Read the promise above; remember that you are fully known by El De’ot and yet deeply loved. Ask God to tell you something that he loves about you.

Listen and journal a prayer of response. Pray for those God puts on your heart that need to know the perfect love of God, who both fully knows them and truly loves them.
