Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 68 – 69
Verse of the Day: Psalm 66:16 – “O God, thou knowest my foolishness; And my sins are not hid from thee.”
David in this verse reminds us that we have an omniscient God. Everything is known to Him. When we come before Him in prayer, we can try to put up a front, but God knows all there is to know about us.
The word that is translated as “foolishness” in this verse carries the meaning of one who despises wisdom, one who mocks when guilty, one who is quarrelsome, or one who is licentious. This is not the idea of acting silly – it is the concept of rebellion against God. God knows this about us, and He still meets with us. He wants us to confess and accept His forgiveness and restoration.
Prayer: Loving God, thank You that You already know all the dirt I have on me, and You want to clean it off and make me Your child. Thank You that You love to hug dirty kids, and clean them up. Amen.
