In Psalm 139:1-3, David wrote, “O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.”
We also know that Jesus, the Good Shepherd, calls His own sheep by name and they hear His voice and not the voice of strangers (John 10). Paul wrote to Timothy and said, “The firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, ‘The Lord knows those who are His,’ and ‘Let everyone who names the name of the Lord abstain from wickedness.’” (2 Timothy 2:19)
It is such a comfort to understand that Jesus knows my name and hears me when I call to Him.
