Ever feel that God doesn't even know your name?
Paul, in writing to Timothy, shared a powerful truth, "Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: The Lord knows those who are His…"
II Timothy 2:19
Need I say more? God who is all-knowing knows your name. The God who is all-powerful has the power to change your life. Too many times we go by our feelings and feel unloved. We may not feel His presence one day, and we think He has forsaken us. The fact is, we do not have to live by feelings but by faith. If He said, "He knows those who are His", shouldn't we take Him at His word? God loves you and cares for you. You are special to Him! He knows the number of tears you cry and the number of hairs on your head (and those that fall off too). We can delight in the fact that God cares for each one of us so much that He knows us all by name.
My comprehension is not capable of grasping the fact that God Almighty can be everywhere at one time and know billions of individual names. Not only that, He knows every detail of those many billions of people. Amazing, is it not? What an awesome God we serve! Paul relates that this is the solid foundation of God, and it stands with the seal of His ownership on our lives. Friend, the next time you feel forsaken, unloved or unmoved, think on this verse (II Timothy 2:19). You are special, you are chosen, you are loved. Jesus said that God knows every time a sparrow falls to the ground, how much more does He know your needs and hurts. Rest assured that you are the apple of God's eye, and He knows you by name.
