Revelation 2:2,
“I know all the things you do. I have seen your hard work and your patient endurance. I know you don’t tolerate evil people. You have examined the claims of those who say they are apostles but are not. You have discovered they are liars."

"I know all the things you do. I have seen your love, your faith, your service, and your patient endurance. And I can see your constant improvement in all these things."

"... I know all the things you do, and that you have a reputation for being alive—but you are dead. "
Revelation 3:8,
"I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me."
Revelation 3:15,
"I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other!"
My only comfort is knowing - JESUS KNOWS - Knowing this provides the guardrails of faith -- the fear that He knows, and the comfort that He knows.
