Reference: You Know My Name by Tasha Cobbs Leonard
I don’t know about you but God amazes me everyday with the way He reveals things to me. So I was minding my own listening to Tasha Cobbs Leonard’s song, You Know My Name, which I’ve known for a while now but this time it was directly speaking to me as if it were my first time listening to it and it reminded me immediately at that moment that God had not forgotten about me.
There were a couple of times this year that I saw myself wondering if God still remembered me cause I couldn’t feel Him but when I heard this song, it was a big eye opener and reminder that He did so I went to the word and found a bible verse that resonated with the song to seal the deal.
But now, thus says the Lord , who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.
Isaiah 43:1 NKJV
Let’s further break this down
He who created you:
Create: bring into existence.
What is so magnificent about these verses is the fact that God created only mankind in his own image. Nothing else that He created was made in His image except for humans. That on it’s own is true confirmation of the importance we have in God’s eyes that He took His time to create humans in his very own image. God wanted us to be distinct from the rest of his creation, he wanted part of Him in each and every one of us and that shows the amount detail and uniqueness God wanted in us when He created each individual. Don’t you already feel special by just those verses?? I know, I do.
He who formed you:
Formed: Made or made into a specific shape or form
This verse falls under my favorite bible verses. When I read it, I am reminded that God didn’t only begin to add me to his family when I was born, no not at all. This was from the very beginning. I’ve never heard of such greatness in a God, I guarantee you that no God can tell you that they’ve known you before you were even formed.
Let me tell you about my God.
He knew every single detail of my life from the day I will be born to the day I will die, my personality, my flaws, my purpose, my every step, the number of teeth I have the number of hairs I have individually on my head, every.single.thing. all before He formed the being that I am.
I don’t know about you but I am in awe of the specificity of this God I serve. One can not begin to fathom it. It is so unfathomable that I begin to be grateful that He is my creator cause If He can know me before my formation nothing will stop Him from being there every step of the way. No parent doesn’t want to be part of every part of their child’s life so what More the creator Himself !!!
Called You By Name:
God never ceases to let us know in His word that He is the one who specifically created us and called by His grace into His unconditional love all before we were formed.
“God doesn’t count us, he calls us by name. Arithmetic is not his focus.”
Romans 9: 20-33 (MSG)
This is for those men and women like me who have found themselves questioning God’s presence in their lives, God’s love for them and if God cares about them still.
He does. Oh Yes He does. He knew you before He even He began moulding you into existence, He specifically designed you in his own image, He calls you by name. You’re not a statistic to Him, you are known to Him by name.
He is never busy to look after you as His child. Not when He has formed you, moulded you, designed you in his likeness.
