God Knew My Heart

God can see what is in people‚Äôs hearts. And he knows what is in the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit speaks to God for his people in the way God wants.  Romans 8:27 NCV

My parents were about to get a divorce. My dad would eventually leave town. A short time after I got home, a friend from church called about some sound-system-related issues. He gave me support at a time when I needed it.

A few years later, I received a call I never expected. A good friend of mine was a missionary in Albania, and his grandma was phoning with the news of his death. I was especially troubled since he had just been given a clean bill of health a few weeks before he returned to the mission field. A short time later, a family member called, and I was able to pour out my heart about the loss of my friend.

At both times, the Lord knew I was hurting and needed to talk to someone. As Paul relates, the Lords knows what is on our minds and hearts and can bring people across our paths at just the right time when we need a lift. 

Remember, God knows what you need and when you need it. Trust Him.
