daily godliness

What do you do with an all-knowing God?

If God has eyes, this is what they would see. The eyes of the LORD are in every place,keeping watch on the evil and the good. Proverbs 15:3 (ESV) God knows everything about everyone. He knows our daily activities; He knows out thoughts; He even knows what we are going to say before we say […]
