God Knows YOU, Personally & Individually

0391592b4b06bfe002ff9c70f1ffb480So – God is knowable.  And He wants you to get to know Him, personally, for yourself.  That’s the first thing.

The second thing is this: God knows YOU, personally and individually.  You are not distant from, unknown to, or forgotten by God; You are remembered & personally known to Him. He holds you very close in His heart.

And you are not just known to Him as part of a larger group.  You are not just a member of humanity, or of a generation, or of a culture.  You are not just a member of your family, or a student in a school, or an employee at a company, or a participant in a church or organization. You are known to Him, both personally and individually.

See these God-inspired words in Psalm 139:1-6,13-18

Psalm 139 17-18You have searched me, Lord, and You know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar.  You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways.  Before a word is on my tongue, You, Lord, know it completely.  You hem me in behind and before, and You lay your hand upon me.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain…  For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.  How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God!  How vast is the sum of them!  Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand – when I awake, I am still with You.

And these words from Jesus in Matthew 10:29-31

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?  Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

“Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.”

So – God is knowable.  And He wants you to get to know Him, personally, for yourself.  That’s the first thing.

The second thing is this: God knows you, personally and individually.  You are not distant from, unknown to, or forgotten by God; You are remembered & personally known to Him. He holds you very close in His heart.

In the next post, we will look at the third thing: Get to know God NOW, as early as you can!  (There is NO reason to wait!)
