God Knows: When Your Worries and Whys Need More Than Temporary Relief by Lisa Whittle

God Knows: When Your Worries and Whys Need More Than Temporary Relief

If we really believed that God knowing was enough—and left it there—our questions, worries, and angst over life's struggles would find more than temporary relief. Many of us wake up every day with looming anxieties over our future and a weariness we can't shake. We have more questions than answers and live with difficult daily realities and secrets we feel we cannot share. The question remains for most How can I fix it, make sense of it, or solve it? 

Enter God Knows : a guidebook to lead the modern believer to a place of release, relief, and reliance upon the omniscience of God. Inspired by the seldom-studied book of Nahum, God Knows details the behind-the-scenes picture we are missing, what His great knowing entails, and how his omniscience provides daily perspective to bring the healing and peace we are all desperate to find. In God Knows , you God is doing his job the justice, the plan, the working together for our good even when we can't see or understand. The problem is not God. Learn to release what has been burdening you and watch His plan for your life unfold.

Are you guilty of thinking that God knows what's going on in your life but still worrying about those issues? Do you forget that God knows every single thing about us now and He also knows every single thing that will ever happen to us? Every. Single. Thing? Author Lisa Whittle addresses this in her new book, God Knows, and she uses a three-chapter Old Testament book as the basis of her theories. Whittle believes that the minor prophet Nahum was trying to show us that 'things aren't always as they appear, God knows what we don't, and He is taking care of it.' (p. 7) Isn't that a wonderful reassurance in our stressful, question-filled lives?

“The Lord is good. A stronghold in the day of trouble. He knows those who take refuge in Him. “ Nahum 1:7

I admit that I haven't recognized the power of Nahum's words, but Whittle has! She uses them to encourage and comfort her readers, and she accomplishes this in an easily understood, totally relatable manner. I especially love that she freely shares her own experiences!

After reading this wonderful resource, you should

  • Experience freedom by learning the difference between privacy and secrecy. 
  • Develop renewed belief in your abandoned dreams and goals, still known by God.
  • Realign your idea of God's omniscience being far away to how it daily affects you. 
  • Release your fears for the future as you develop a different outlook on tomorrow through God's lens.
  • Learn how to deal with injustice in light of God's knowledge of it.
