If God did not know all the present, then He could be deceived and misled. But God knows everything about all His creatures.
The psalmist writes, "The LORD looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race. From His throne He observes all who live on the earth. He made their hearts, so He understands everything they do." (Psalm 33:13-15)
We can compare God's knowledge to a mother who knows exactly what her child has done and is doing. Mothers often intuitively discern the real motives of their children's actions. If that is true of a mother, how much more is it true of our heavenly Father! God knows every good intention we have – as well as every thought to rebel against His commands.
This can be very encouraging. For example, during Jesus' final meal with His disciples before the crucifixion, He predicted that Simon Peter would deny Him. Jesus said to him, "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers." (Luke 22:31-32)
Knowing the condition of Peter's heart and that Peter would later disciple his brothers and sisters in their faith, Jesus prayed for him even before his denial. Jesus does the same for us today.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Jesus' prayer for Peter was obviously answered. Since He is our advocate as well, and He knows everything about us, think about what Jesus asks the Father for on your behalf. Today, thank Him for His watchful care and daily intercession.

Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
