"God saw the people of Israel-and God knew."
I took time to check some cross references found in Exodus 3:7,16; 4:31; Nehemiah9:9; Psalm 106:44.
It is reassuring and sometimes convicting that God sees and God knows. In times of blessing, in dark nights of the soul, times when I am ashamed He sees my wicked heart.
But because of the precious blood of my Savior Jesus, I am covered in his righteousness, I am forgiven, I am taken care of, I am loved. God sees-God knows but sees me through Jesus.
Rejoice and worship:
"And the people believed; and when they heard that the Lord had visited the people of Israel and that he had seen their affliction, they bowed their heads and worshipped."
