“The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”
—2 Chronicles 16:9
The term “know-it-all” usually has negative connotations. But Jesus literally is a know-it-all because He’s omniscient, which means all-knowing.
Jesus knows everything, yet He made himself vulnerable and open during His earthly ministry. For instance, He reached out to the woman at the well in Samaria, and she ended up believing as a result.
He engaged her in conversation, and after she realized that He knew everything about her, she “left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling everyone, ‘Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?’” (John 4:28–29 NLT).
