I Was A God This Morning

Rusty - February 28, 2008

I usually wake up at 7:30 and right before I leave for work at 8:30 I wake up my wife. Last night she said she needed to get up at 7:30 and leave by 8:15 so she could make her doctor appointment. I knew then that she wouldn’t actually get up at 7:30 and this morning when I rolled out of bed alone at 7:30 I also knew for a fact that we’d both be leaving together at 8:30 (rather than her at 8:15 and me at 8:30).

This is knowledge, folks. You know, like the-sun-rises-in-the-east kind of knowledge.

I don’t know exactly how God’s knowledge works but instances like this give me a better idea. Just because He knows what we’re going to do doesn’t make us do it. It just means He knows us pretty well.

  2. [Holy Hannah! I haven't been able to sleep until 7:30AM since...let's see now...since...well, golly, I think it was 1999!]

    I like this; it makes sense.

  3. I struggled for some time to decide on my major in college, and when I finally figured it out, I was so excited I called my mom. I told her she had to guess. Her first guess was really close, so I made her guess again, and BINGO, she got it. I was so annoyed that she hadn’t just told me what to major in since she seemed to know me so well. Now that i have tree kids of my own, I think I understand.

  4. As a school teacher, I see this a lot. Yet every time it seems to amaze my students that I somehow “know.”

  5. It also works for “hot buttons”. I know which “hot button” to push to get a certain reaction from my wife. God seems to push my “hot buttons” sometimes too!

  6. This reminds me of a part in the movie “Groundhog Day.” Bill Murray keeps waking up again after killing himself in various ways, he learns all the Jeopardy answers because he watches the same episode every day, he knows everything about everyone at the diner, etc.

    Remember? He tells that one chick something like, “I’m a God. No, I’m not THE God; I’m A god…Maybe the real God doesn’t really have super powers — maybe He’s just been around so long He knows everything.”
