God Knows Your Name And He Counts Every Hair On Your Head.

Updated: Jan 7

Right now it is estimated that there are 8 billion people alive on the earth. Now I know why sometimes it feels so crowded!

God sees you in that crowd and He knows your name! Not only that but He counts every one of the hairs on your head - Luke 12:7.

In this post we will discover 20 scriptures full of encouragement of how precious you are to God . He knows your name!

In a world of 8 billion people it is easy to feel lost and even rejected.

But God.....

God created us. He knew us before we were born. He knit us together in our mother's womb.

What a miracle that is!

God also knew that we could never ever be good or holy enough on our own merit to come into His presence and have fellowship with Him. So God gave up His Son to die for us at Calvary. Jesus took the penalty of our sins on the cross, just so we can know God.

God knows your name and He has claimed you as His own.

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;

I have called you by name, you are mine." Isaiah 43:1.

During Old Testament times, God commissioned the priests to bless Israel and put His name on them. He promised to redeem them if they sought Him. We are so blessed to live in this modern age, knowing that our savior, Jesus paid that ransom for us already to gain God's blessing too.

God knows your name

God knows your name scriptures

What does it mean that God knows your name?

It is a supernatural truth that God knows your name.

God knows me by name too.

I like to think that I am special ( more so than anyone else in God's eyes!)

But the supernatural truth is that God knows each of us by name. You are as important to Him as I am. God counts every one of the hairs on our heads. The Bible also tells us that God knew us before we were even born!

That means that you and I matter to God.

For God to know us by name means that He chose us on purpose for a purpose. God has good plans for each of us. God's plan for my life is different from the one He has for your life. But His plans are marvelous and when we partner with God we can set the world on fire for Him!

God knows you intimately and has created you with unique gifts that you can bless the world with. You are so important and integral to God's work here in this lifetime.

God knew you before you were born

Did you know that before you were even born, God knew you?

God knows everything about us. He is the Alpha and Omega. He is the first and the last, the beginning and the ending.

God knows your name. Jesus knows your name and the Holy Spirit knows your name too!

One of my favorite names of God is El Roi - the God who sees me. This is the name of God that Hagar used when He met her in her misery and desperate situation ( I have written about El Roi here) El Roi sees you in whatever circumstances that you are in right now and He knows your name!

Another Hebrew name of Jesus is Yahweh Roi (John 10:11) He is your shepherd guiding you and protecting you.
