Does God Know You By Name?
[ The Promise of God’s Presence ] Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people.’ But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.’ Exodus 33:12
God knows your name but does he know you by name? Do we really know what it means for God to know us by name and for us to find grace in His sight. If only we can strive and pray, putting on the whole armor of God, to get to that place of intimate fellowship and friendship with God. I mean real true genuine friendship, where two people bask in their love and fondness for one another. This friendship incorporates true love that involves, loyalty, commitment, dedication, selflessness and sacrifice. This type of love always strives and hungers to please the beloved regardless of any other thing and above all else.
Moses was a friend of God and God showed Him secrets, defended Him even from His siblings, Aaron and Miriam, and worked miracles and wonders through Him. Moses was described as the meekest and most humble man during His days.
Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.) Numbers 12:3 NIV
Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth. Numbers 12:3 ESV
God wants to know us by name and He wants us to find grace in His sight. We are saved by grace and God has given us grace, however grace is in levels. There is a place of all grace. Also, great grace was upon the apostles. If we want to be intimate with God and do great and mighty works we should learn to appreciate the grace of God. Jesus is the grace of God. God wants to decorate us and beautify us with Christ – the word of God and the grace of God.
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. Acts 4:33
May we yearn and keep praying to get to the place of all grace. There, glory abounds and peace reigns. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ rest upon us, fill us up, surround us, and be with us.
