Sukadeva Gosvami said: Next, after assimilating Uddhava’s report, Lord Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the omniscient Soul of all that be, desired to satisfy the serving girl Trivakra, who was troubled by lust. Thus He went to her house.

This text gives an interesting insight into the Lord’s pastimes. The first line says, atha vijñnaya bhagavan: “Thus the Lord, understanding [Uddhava’s report], …” The second line states that Lord Krsna is the Soul of everything (sarvatma) and the seer of everything (sarva-darsanah). In other words, although He certainly does not depend on spoken reports from messengers, He plays the part of a human being and listens to news from a messenger — not out of need, as we would do, but in the bliss of His spiritual pastimes, exchanging love with His pure devotee. The word sarva-darsanah also indicates that the Lord perfectly understood the feelings of the residents of Vraja and was perfectly reciprocating with them within their hearts. Now, in His external pastimes, He desired to bless Srimati Trivakra, who was about to be freed from the disease of material lust.
