I remember hearing my dad’s voice at tennis meets. For some reason, I could always hear him cheering me on. When he would yell my name, I knew that he was there and he was watching.
In the same way, God has called us by name. He calls us by name, which speaks to His deep love and knowledge of you.
But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. – Isaiah 43:1 (NLT)
So when we go out, when we make decisions each day, we should be mindful that God has called us by name. God knows us and as a result, we should be making decisions and living our lives in ways that bring glory to God.
We’re not accidents, but we’ve been created and called on purpose. Let’s determine to go out and make the world a better place for Jesus today!
