The Lord Knows by Susannah Spurgeon

The Lord knows all about us. Our enemies–sometimes, even our friends–misunderstand and malign us; they misconstrue our words and actions, and impute to us motives which never actuated us. But our God knows the thoughts and intents of our heart, and never makes a mistake in the judgment He passes on us. The comfort of this knowledge on the Lord’s part, to those who are “suffering wrongly,” is inexpressibly precious. They can lift up their heads with joy and say, “The Lord is good. He knows those who trust in Him.” I have known this comfort to so delight my soul, that trials and temptations had no power to vex or annoy it, for my soul was hidden “secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.”

“For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.” (1 Peter 2:19)

“The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him.” (Nahum 1:7)

“You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence From the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion From the strife of tongues.” (Psalm 31:20)
