I Have Hidden Your Word
Psalm 119:11

God Knows

Psalm 139:1-3 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways

If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever. 1 Chronicles 28:9
