Oh, brethren, earthly kings and princes do not know all their subjects; nay, they know very few. Alas! they do not know a quarter of them! They are not acquainted with all the troubles, and needs, and miseries that their poor subjects lie under.
The Lord Jesus infinitely excels all other kings in that He has a perfect knowledge of all His subjects! He knows them all by name. He knows all their thoughts, all their needs, all their ways, all their conditions.
So say I to you, brethren, Your King knows all your necessities, all your sufferings, all your troubles, all your fears!
Oh, poor souls, Christ knows everything about you! This is our great happiness, that we have a King who knows us so well. Oh, here is the excellency of our King!
Psalm 23:1 ... The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Philippians 4:19 ... But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
1 Peter 5:6-7 ... Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.❤
