Only God Knows

The ESV translation of Exodus 2:24 caught my eye...

23 During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God. 24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. 25 God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.


We usually use the phrase "only God knows" as way of saying that no one knows what's going to happen. "God knows who will show up today."

But what this passage reminds me is that God DOES know. He knows and cares and has compassion. He heard the cry of His people and He was about to answer in a mighty way.

What's going to happen next in life?

Only God knows.

I'm so glad He does.
