in that deep place

From a devotional:

"Do not wait for some ideal situation, some romantic difficulty, some far-away emergency; but rise to meet the actual conditions which the providence of God has placed around you today. Your crown of glory lies embedded in the very heart of these things--those hardships and trials that are pressing you this very hour, week, and month of your life. The hardest things are not those that the world knows of. Down in your secret soul unseen and unknown by any but Jesus, there is a little trial that you would not dare to mention, that is harder for you to bear than martyrdom.

There, beloved, lies your crown. God help you to overcome, and sometime wear it." ~ Selected

Ahh, this speaks to the very omniscience of God. Think Psalm 139:1-6. God has complete knowledge of me inside and out. Complete. This is something no human can ever acquire about anyone else. Only God. Only God with his infinite awareness, understanding, and insight. Who else then could help us better than He who knows the trial that is deep within us and unspeakable to anyone else? Only God.

He is faithful. Press on. We will overcome.
