- “Lord, you know all things…” (John 21:17).
Sometimes this is our only defense. When we try to be what we want to be but can’t seem to be, we find both hope and fear in the knowledge that our Savior knows all things. He knows what we long to be. He sees us in our failure. Who would understand this better than Simon Peter? Jesus had warned him of his impending failure, even insisting on praying for His over-confident disciple. “No way will I deny you!” Peter wanted to scream (and kinda did). Sure enough, Jesus knew–He knows all things. He knows us better than we can know ourselves. He knows what we long for and what we will ultimately choose. He knows…and thankfully He still loves.
