~~I’m going to repost a few older posts. I’ve been cleaning up the website and ran across a few I really enjoyed; hope you do, too!~~
We know his name is Fred because that’s what’s written on the license plate on the front of his truck. He doesn’t seem to realize that is why people know his name (because they read his license plate). He is just so ecstatic that people know his name.
Here’s the wonderful thing about God – He knows your name, without a name tag or license plate! He created you and knows you inside out. He knows YOU better than anyone on earth.
He knows your likes and dislikes. He know your gifts, talents and abilities. He knows what will make you contented and happy. He knows what you are graced to do. He knows the amazing plans and thoughts HE has for you. They are plans for your best. They are there to do you good!
He even knows how many hairs are on your head.
He knows when you’re heartbroken (boy, does He). He knows when you feel lost and alone. He knows when you need a pick-me-up. He knows when you need a hug. He knows how to fix every single thing in your life (if you will let Him). He knows you.
God created you. His love for you is SO vast you can’t even calculate it. He loves you no matter your past or even present. He just loves.
We should all get as excited as Fred – God knows our name! He knows your name. That should be of the uttermost importance to you because it means you can go to Him about everything.
If you can just grasp a little of His love for you, then He can show you the rest. Of course it will take a lifetime, and then some, to truly understand how much He loves you!
And you should also know His name, by getting to know Him, too!
