God Knows Your Motives

1 Samuel 17:1–18:4; John 8:21-30; Psalm 111:1-10; Proverbs 15:11

God Knows Your Motives
Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?
 – Proverbs 15:11

Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead) and Abaddon (the abyss, the place of eternal punishment) like open before the Lord – How much more the hearts and inner motives of the children of men. – Proverbs 15:11 AMP

The Battle is the Lord’s
Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give you into our hands.
 – 1 Samuel 17:45-47

I Speak to the World Those Things Which I Have Heard
Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning. I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
 – John 8:25-27

The Beginning of Wisdom
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
– Psalm 111:10
