Called By Name ~ Sunday Devotional
“But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.” Isaiah 43:1 (NKJV)
How does it make you feel when someone calls you by name?
It adds a personal touch, doesn’t it?
You feel known.
And everyone wants to feel known.
It’s not about being known because your name is on a billboard.
It’s that feeling.
When someone acknowledges you, you feel special and valued.
God calls you by name.
The God of the Universe knows you.
Several months ago, I was in a local shop. There was a new gal working the register. I didn’t know her. But she knew me. She called me by name.
Later that day, I was still thinking about that and wished that I had asked more about her and learned her name.
Months later, I haven’t forgotten the feeling I had as a result of someone taking the time to know me.
It’s a feeling everyone seeks.
You may feel overlooked. But you’re not overlooked by God.
God knows you.
No matter where you are in life. He knows you. He sees you.
God chose you.
You are His child.
God knows you by name.
When you believe this, your whole world will change.
