"The Lord said, 'See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.' ' Isaiah 49:16 (NIV)
Have you ever been out and about and run into someone that You should know but you just can't remember their name? So many times someone will call my name out and I know I should know their name but I only recognize their face. It can be very embarrassing to say the least.
Aren't we lucky that we have a God who is not only our friend but has engraved our name in his hand? I marvel that while I struggle to recall the name of a few hundred acquaintances, God invites all 7.6 billion people on this earth to be His close friends! He knows every hair on their heads; He knows each by name.
My prayer is that I will cultivate a meaningful, personal relationship with God so that I can recognize God's voice and follow God's will every day.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for loving us and calling us each by name. Amen.
