Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

Know That He Knows

"Does the Lord know you?"

"It would seem that since He's God, maybe He would, but...He must be so busy with keeping the world moving and helping other people that He must not give much thought to young people like us. He's probably more concerned with the adults. Some say that He is a personal God Who knows us and Who wants us to know Him, but I'm not so sure."

Do these sentences mirror your thoughts? Do you want a new look at God's love for you? Maybe you're not really struggling with doubts, but could use some encouragement. Let's look at a Scripture verse and hopefully that will be a help to you.

"O LORD, you have searched me and you know me." (Psalm 139:1, NIV)

Well, there's a confirmation right there. The very first verse in this chapter dispels the doubt that the Lord doesn't know who you are. In fact, not only does He know you, but He has searched you! That word "searched" means "to explore, search out, probe, test, sound out, sees through, to be determined, examined"*

Think about it: Don't you think that if God has probed you, explored you, examined you, and sees through you that He would know you? It certainly seems that way, but more than that, it
is that way. How do I know? The Bible says so, and the Bible is absolutely true.

The word "know" in this verse means this: "recognize, understand, observe, cares for, found out, take notice"*

Isn't that so neat? From looking at this verse there can be no doubt that the Lord does, indeed, know and care for us. What an awesome God we serve!

Please remember today, tomorrow, and in the days to come that the Lord most definitely cares for you, whether you are a teenager or an adult. Age makes no difference. He has searched you and He knows you. Never forget that!

P.S. I am hoping that there will be many posts following this one that talk through the verses in this chapter. Keep a look out!
