God made everything and God knows everything. He even knows my favorite color. What’s your favorite color? Surprise! God already knew it!
God knows my name. He even knows how many hairs are on my head. Can you count how many hairs are on your head? God can count every star up in space. He put every one in its place!
God sees me when I go out to play and when I go to bed. He can watch over me because He never sleeps. When I hide in my favorite hiding place, God can find me! Nothing can hide from God.
When a sparrow falls to the ground or when I fall to the ground, God knows! He always knows how I feel. God understands when I feel sad, glad, mad, or bad. He cares when I feel embarrassed, scared, or excited.
Before God made the world, He knew about me. Before I was born, God knew what would happen every day of my life. God knows my name. And He knows the names of everyone in the whole wide world!*
God knows all about us and He loves us . . . even when we do bad things. He calls these bad things sin. Everyone who sins must be punished, but God loves us so much that He did a wonderful thing. He sent His own Son, Jesus, to be punished in our place! Now we can live with God forever in Heaven if we believe and accept God’s gift of Jesus to us.
If you believe these things in your heart, talk to God right now and say, “Dear God, thank You for loving me so much that You know all about me. I know that I have done bad things and I am sorry. Thank You for sending Jesus to take the punishment for my sin. Please come into my heart and help me love You more every day. Amen.”
