God Calls Your Name

This is what the Lord GOD says: I, myself, will search for my sheep and take care of them. EZEKIEL 34:11

He’s waiting for you. God is standing on the porch of heaven, expectantly hoping, searching the horizon for a glimpse of his child. You’re the one God is seeking.

God is the waiting Father, the caring Shepherd in search of his lamb. His legs are scratched, his feet are sore, and his eyes are burning. He scales the cliffs and traverses the fields. He explores the caves. He cups his hands to his mouth and calls into the canyon.

And the name he calls is yours.…

The message is simple: God gave up his Son in order to rescue all his sons and daughters. To bring his children home. He’s listening for your answer.

And the Angels Were Silent

  1. But now, this is what the Lord says — he who created you, O Jacob; he who formed you…Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. Is 43

    The Korean Bible leaves out the most significant “by name”. Just says called. The Eng translations seem to make a point of his having called us by name. The Hebrew text has “called you by name” or “called your name.”

    This breathtaking truth applies to women who’ve lost little ones in the womb:
    God didn’t just summon his people. He chose to call them by name. And in case we didn’t get the dignity of a unique identity and the intimacy He had blessed upon our relationship, He spoke of ownership, “I formed you…you are mine.” Not something tossed to the side of the road that belonged to no one, that had no anchor of love.
