Does God Really Know You? Part 1

Does God really know you?  Does He know your name?

Does God really know you?  Does He know your name?  Do you believe that God knows you well enough to know your sorrows and pain?  In scripture we have the evidence that He was aware of the problems and pain of His people the Israelites.


Exodus 2:23-25:

1.  Their cry came up to God.

2.  He heard their groaning and sighing.

3.  He looked upon their sufferings.

4.  He remembered His covenant.

5.  He had respect unto them.


God took knowledge of His people and concerned Himself with their problems.  Psalm 56:8 gives an even clearer picture of God's heart for people.

"You keep track of all my sorrows (wanderings).  You have put my tears in your bottle.  You have recorded each one in your book."


Why would God keep track of  your sorrows and put your tears in His bottle?  The bottle was a skin or bag for fluids.  It was a picture of God writing on parchment and recording your pains and sorrows.  He is attentive to every detail of your life.  You are in line for help from above.
