The Omniscient God

Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite. Psalms 147:5

This is the verse I started out with this morning. Infinite understanding, there is no limit. God has perfect knowledge of the past, the present, and the future. For Him, everything is "one eternal now". All the stuff that I see in sequence, over time, God sees all at once, in it's totality.
I heard someone say a couple days ago that because he is a believer, safe in God's hands, there is no such thing as failure. The outcome of all things belong to God and God alone, he is simply there to follow God where He tells him to go. In the eyes of the world, the outcome may look like a failure, but God knows everything in it's totality, years from now. The supposed failure could be the onset of some other success that I cannot see!
God sees my all, every thought, motive, tear, desire, hope, fear, giggle, and smirk. He sees the goals I set and the ones I wish to set. Past present, and future.
So, why do I still get afraid sometimes? This is a lot of security right here in this one verse. GREAT is our Lord! Abundant in strength---it doesn't say that He has strength; it says He has ABUNDANT strength. I'm thinking that must be a lot. Then, to add to the strength, His understanding is infinite, past, present, and future. Everything about my past, present, and future He gets. In fact, He gets it so well, that He can explain it to me! He understands. I think this is why He so often tells me in His Word to NOT be afraid.
Jesus, Say That Again to me! Great is our Lord! Abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.
