Amy Smith, Plans God Has for You

You Can Trust God’s Goodness

Because God is God, He knows everything. He created the world and you and me. He knows us so well: 

O Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away. . . . Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know it completely. (Ps 139:1–2, 4)
