Does He Know Your Name?

A Friend that Sticks Closer than a Brother

Every time my heart feels low and I feel like the whole world is against me, I often remember the Psalmist saying, "Abba I waited patiently, you turned to me and heard my cry, set my feet on a rock, put a song in my mouth, a song of praise to You, a hymn of praise to my God" (Psalm 40)
For those of you who dont know Abba is transliterated from the Aramaic and it means Papa.
It is an endearing way that the Psalmist David cries out to His Papa as he awaits for his heavenly Father to answer the call of his heart.
When David was out in the fields tending his fathers flock he spent many nights speaking to his heavenly Father and hearing the voice of God out in the wilderness through the Holy Spirit pouring out a new hymn to his God, a psalm that bore witness of God's love for him.
During his lowest times, David would recall these psalms of God's never ending love for him, and God would assure David that He knew David intimately. Because God knew David by name (on a first hand basis) David now had the capacity to know God (his character, his person, his ways) in an intimate way that would cause total assurance to swell up in David's soul to the reality that He knew who he was because of his intimate relationship with God. 
We too must learn our identity that comes from the intimacy of knowing God by His name and acknowledging that there is no one else in heaven or on earth that will ever know us as intimately as God the Father knows us.
The Father knows your name, now are you willing to come and learn His name? Will you dare to get close and find out that you have a friend that sticks closer than a brother?

There are many who say they know Jesus, though the real question is,"Does He know me?" If He does, than you will then one day be able to say,"I am who God says I am."

Likewise, many of us are quick to say we trust God, though the real test comes as we go through tests and tribulations. Will we still have faith? Will we still praise Him?

Will we still love Him when our change is strange and our money gets funny?

More to the point, Does God trust YOU?

Thanks for a short and to the point Hub which shows us David's need and strong desire to develop and maintain an intimate relationship with God. Something we all need to do.

He never said we would not have troubles. Through Him, we find we don't have to allow troubles to have us!

Amen. though I was like to David feeding the flocks, but in my young Christian life. spending time with the Lord is my most enjoyable time for the day. I will sing and read His words especially book of Psalm and those words would appear like Reimar word to me and they comfort my soul.
