I’ll lead you to buried treasures, secret caches of valuables- Confirmation that it is, in fact, I, God…..who calls you by your name. Isaiah 45:3 MSG
He calls me by my name, The God of the Universe knows my name, knows your name!
We meet new people everyday in our busy lives and often we forget their names, or the encounter slips into the hidden recesses of our memory, but God KNOWS our name and calls us by it. We are not simply another random entry into the vastness of His being, tucked away and forgotten. We are in His thoughts every day. He waits for us to rise in the morning, He calls our name, He is there when we slip into slumber at night, He whispers our name. At every turn….He is there, waiting to reveal treasures we cannot even begin to imagine.
‘ God still draws near to us in the ordinary, commonplace, everyday experiences and places…..He comes in surprising ways’ – Henry Gariepy.
Listen today, and hear YOUR name.
This is my heart for you today, because He knows when you rise and when you fall and He knows of your comings and goings, he has seen and sees all that is before you.
Let me hear of your unfailing love to me in the morning,
For I am trusting you
Show me where to walk, for I have come to you in prayer………
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God.
May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.
What a beautiful way to begin each new dawn of day. To hear of His love for us, stepping out knowing that we are special and valued. Facing all that comes our way, navigating every experience and encounter…..trusting……simply because we have asked that He will guide us in the right direction. That He will help us to choose wisely and confidently. And that no matter what the day may bring our feet are firmly planted on a strong and solid foundation.
