He knows exactly how many hairs are on our head!

This is a valuable piece of a wonderful article I read from “The Teaching Legacy of Derek Prince”. The article is called “The Holy Spirit: Eternal, Omniscient, Omnipresent”.  Our God knows us better than we know ourselves and He will reveal things to us through His Holy Spirit! “For the Spirit searches all things, yes the deep things of God” (1Corinthians 2:10).

    “Closely related to the eternal nature of the Holy Spirit is His omniscience. In 1 John the apostle places before us a profound, yet simple revelation: God knows all things.  “God is greater than our hearts, and knows all things” (1 John 3:20).

There is nothing God does not know. From the tiniest insect in the earth to the farthest star in space, there is nothing God does not completely know.

God knows things about us that we ourselves do not know. For instance, He knows the number of hairs each of us has on our head. “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered” (Matthew 10:30).

God knew the number of inhabitants in the city of Nineveh, “that great city, in which there are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons” (Jonah 4:11). He knew—and controlled—the growth of the plant that shaded Jonah. He also knew—and controlled—the action of the worm that caused the plant to wither.

And the Lord God prepared a plant and made it come up over Jonah…But as morning dawned the next day God prepared a worm, and it so damaged the plant that it withered (Jonah 4:6-7).
In 1 Corinthians 2:9–10, Paul speaks about the things which “eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man.” Then he continues, “But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

The Holy Spirit not only plumbs the deepest depths; He also scales the highest heights of all that was, that is, and that is to come. His knowledge is infinite and limitless. In that respect, He also knows us to intimate depths, and He wants us to know Him! It is in the light of this infinite knowledge that you and I must be prepared to give an account of ourselves to God. “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:13).”
