Purpose of the meeting:
Teach teenagers that God sees everything; He is everywhere and knows everything that happens
“The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.” (Proverbs 15.3)
Initiating the meeting:
Take to the class the picture of a doctor analyzing the X-ray of a patient during a tomography scan (easy to find on the internet). Start saying the following: When a doctor needs to know if there is a trauma or a fracture in a patient the resource used is the X-ray and the tomography scan (show the pictures). As much as doctors may be suspicious of a specific diagnosis, they do not have the power to know what is really going on with their patients. In the study of today we will talk about the one who has knowledge of all things.
God knows and sees everything (part 2)
Creator, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient, these are the attributes of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These are specific characteristics of Them. God is Omnipotent: “One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: Power belongs to you, God…” (Psalms 62.11).
Teens, the power of God is unlimited, and to have some idea of the omnipotence of Him, we must allow Him to dwell in each of us through His Spirit. God has the power to change the situation you have experienced; nothing is difficult or impossible for Him. For the miracle to happen, we just use the energy we have within us, faith, and trust in His Divine Power.
God is also omnipresent, or may be present in all places at once, simultaneously. As we said in the previous class, no one can hide from Him. Every time you pray and cry out to God in the name of the Lord Jesus, He will hear and answer your cry, wherever you are, at home, at school, on the street, walking, sitting, kneeling, praying with your lips or mentally, it does not matter, if you cry out to God in faith, He will hear you, and you will have this assurance through the Holy Spirit.
He also knows all things, it means He is Omniscient: “You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.” (Psalms 139.1-2). God is aware of all things, knows our life, our walk, our talk, finally all our actions. All we talk, think and feel…He knows! Only God has the power to know all things, for only He can see everything, and nothing is hidden in His sight. God sees all people, who make good and bad things. Sees when we act properly and when we make mistakes, and even when we are alone, His eyes are upon us, so we must be obedient to His Word always, even when no one is around, because he wants to create through the Holy Spirit a new heart in us, a new life, and through his omnipresence and omniscience He sees us and knows all our needs. He is so omnipotent and glorious; He makes us enjoy a life we never imagined to have!
Many people have been calling themselves Christians, but the Lord Jesus is not within them. They live according to their own desires and have not considered the Word of God in their lives. Teens, never forget that God knows everything, He sees us at all times and know our thoughts and see what's inside our hearts. It's no use pretending that the person is from God but has hidden sin; keeps lying, swearing, disobeying, etc.. God sees all and knows who really belongs to Him, as this verse says: “The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.” (Proverbs 15.3)
