Children indeed have many questions about God. They want to know about Him and if God knows them. Truth: God knows everything about us (Psalm 139:1). As children and adults, God will place a desire in our hearts to know Him. Scripture tells us that Paul had not yet attained to know God as he should, nevertheless, he was compelled toward that goal (Philippians 3:8-14). Unlike Paul, my belief in God occurred at a young age. But, like Paul, my desire to truly know Him has grown throughout my Christian journey. My constant prayer for children is that they will always have a heart to “know” God.
Daddy, I Want to Know God
“Daddy, I want to know God. Do you think He really knows me?”
