The All-Seeing One.

Is God Really Watching Us?!

'Then the LORD said, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great and their sin is very grave, I will go down to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry which has come to me; and if not, I will know." -Genesis 18 : 20,21

As I meditated on the above scripture, it seemed to me that God does not really see what we are doing to ourselves. And it makes sense to the extent that somethings happening in our world today makes one wonder if, perhaps, God does not know.

 He is after all, the God of the whole universe. It might be that He is too busy to be involved without invitation. I suppose that is why we are required to pray always. Praying means keeping in touch, staying connected. 

It was the outcry from Sodom and Gomorrah that made God send His Angels to go and investigate whether things were really as the complaints said.

If God does not see as we assume He does, then it is by our outcry and prayers that He gets to know what we are going through.
If we don't pray, we don't get a redress. If we don't ask, we don't receive. If we don't complain to God, He won't know we are not comfortable with a situation.

There are other scriptures that suggest that the above view is not absolute, but if we went by what subsequently happened to the investigating Angels in Genesis 19 :1-11, it is one sure way of looking at things. Surely, God didn't have to put Himself through that to know what was going on, if indeed, He had been seeing all.

It is, therefore, not to our good to just assume that God knows about a situation, because He just might not Know!

 Tell Him about it. Give Him no rest till He answers you. It seems to me, we need to be a disturbance to Him about it. Then, He would set up an inquiry to do something about the case.
