To be known

Slowly edging towards You My God, with caution as the ground has only just begun to feel more firm. Sometimes I feel despair, not sensing  that You have also taken a step towards me. All my effort in believing, striving to know and understand You. But there has to be more than my small efforts.

I realise as Your Spirit reminds me. It is not my efforts of believing in You that draws my heart closer to Yours. It is the knowledge that I am known by You. Yes I am trying to know you. But You know me. Its not about my efforts but the efforts of Jesus.

To believe in Jesus is to be known by God. To be known by the Father in Heaven.  Cease to strive and struggle, fragile one, for you are known by Him. Cease to be defined by others, cease to be worried and frustrated for you are known by Him.

Matthew 10:29-30…the hairs on your head are numbered. Do not be afraid.

Isaiah 43…Fear not, for I have redeemed You, I have summoned you by name, you are Mine.

Psalm139…You know me so intimately.

Now I come to You knowing that you can’t be any closer. My spirit is quiet throughout the day because it is safe in Jesus. Secure and at rest. It has found the author of life and is satisfied.

To know Christ is to be known by the Father. This is true treasure.
