Can God read our minds? Does God know what we’re thinking?

Here's the answer:

Yes, God knows what we’re thinking all the time.

God is everywhere and knows everything. There is a big word for this—omniscience. It is an attribute of God and means that He is all-knowing.

The Bible says that God knows our thoughts before we speak (Psalm 139:4). We don’t have to speak out loud in order to talk to Him. We can pray in our minds and He can hear us. That means, we can pray no matter where we are. Even at a loud sporting event or a party when it is hard to hear, we can pray to God in our minds and He hears us.

God also knows when we have bad thoughts about other people or when we are angry. Since God already knows that we are thinking these thoughts, we can confess them to God and ask for His help.

Let's thank God that He is with us wherever we go and can always hear us.
