GOD KNOWS HIS OWN


GOD KNOWS HIS OWN

2 Timothy 2:19-21 (NKJV) Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.

Today I would like to look at verse 19, and then tomorrow we will look at verses 20 and 21.

When a king put a seal on something, like a letter or a package, that item became very valuable.  If you messed around with it, you could be killed.  God has put His seal on us, and that makes us very, very valuable.  This verse states that God knows His special people.  I do not know about you, but I am glad I am one of His special people!

God’s love for us is so amazing that He knows each of us in a very unique way.  He created us, and therefore knows all about us.  He knows what makes us glad, what makes us sad, what brings peace to us, what brings fear, and He is an ever-present help in time of need.  This verse says, “The Lord knows those who are His.”  I would rather have God know me, and for me to be in His will, than anywhere else. 

So today, live in peace knowing that you are sealed by God and watched over.  He knows you and loves you.  He is working on you and has not given up on you, so do not give up!

Confession:  The Lord knows those who are His, and since I am His, I know that everything is going to be ok.   In this life, God is leading, guiding, and directing my steps.  He cannot let me down because I am His.
