The Lord Knows

John 21:17  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 5
Lord, thou knowest all things.
These are the words of Peter. He was distressed that the Lord would ask him three times about his love. Peter had doubted the Lord’s word when He told him that he would deny Him three times. Now Peter learned a lesson that we all need to learn -whenever our thoughts differ from the thoughts of the Lord - we are wrong. For every occasion when we think that our way would be better this time, we’ll end up with the painful confession, “Lord, thou knowest all things.” For every doubt that comes into our thoughts there will be the triumphant confession, “Lord, thou knowest all things.”
