A Glory Seed Devotional

God knows your name!

The Creator of ALL galaxies knows your name!

You may be insignificant to billions of people who walk the earth but you ARE NOT insignificant to God!

God not only knows your name he also knows your hopes, your dreams, your fears, your burdens.

Because God knows your name, because his love for you is unparalleled, because he has invested the life of His Only Begotten Son in your life, because he is aware of what you will face in the minutes, hours, and days ahead he says to you this morning, “…don’t be afraid. I have rescued you. I have called you by name; now you belong to me. When you cross deep rivers, I will be with you, and you won’t drown. When you walk through fire, you won’t be burned or scorched by the flames. I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, the God who saves you…” (Isaiah 43:1–3, CEV, selected portions)

Please note God’s use of the word “through” it would be nice if he’d used the word “around” instead but then I’d never have experienced God’s intimate involvement in my own life. Jesus not only died to save us but also so that we would have the Holy Spirit. And it is the Holy Spirit who rescues us from the dangers of walking through rivers and flames.

Never in our lives has it been more important than it is now to put our trust in God’s faithfulness. By looking in the rearview mirror we see that God is faithful the tricky part is not turning around and going back! Every minute of everyday God holds you firmly and faithfully in his heart. GOD IS FAITHFUL and you can take that with you in the minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years ahead of you!

Believe it! Experience it!

Grace and PEACE,

Gary
