Are You Known?

Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne?  Though she may forget I will not forget you.  See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before Me. 
Isaiah 49:15-16

To paraphrase the theme song of a popular 90’s TV show, “people always want to be where somebody knows their name”.

I am personally uncomfortable walking into a room where I do not know anyone.  My hands sweating, a halt in my steps, and my eyes darting back and forth searching for a familiar face, any familiar face.  Have you felt that way, also?  I understand this is a fairly universal discomfort.

Well aware of my personal discomfort, you can imagine the joy I felt when I read in Second Timothy “God’s truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription:’The Lord knows those who are His’ “ (2 Timothy 2:19).

Hallelujah!!!  I do not have to introduce and re-introduce myself every time I come before my Lord for mercy, for grace, in petition, in adoration, worship, or gratitude.  HE knows me and remembers me. 

My name is written on His hands and in His Book of Life.

Dear Lord, there are many who long to be known and I pray they turn that longing toward You, so You will know them as Yours.
