Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.  (Psalm 9:10)

The Hebrew word for “know” in this verse indicates perception, understanding, and discernment.  It can even be used for the kind of intimate knowledge spouses have of each other.

Those who know His name.

This isn’t just being able to rattle off a list of God’s names.  It’s understanding them.  It’s recognizing that the names of God reflect His character.  It’s knowing that His name is not just a word but a footprint on your life.

Jehovah-Rapha – He healed you.

El Shaddai – You discovered that He was sufficient when everything else fell away.

Jehovah-Jireh – He was the One who provided for you when there was no other way.

Emmanuel – He was the One who remained with you, even in your loneliest moments.

Redeemer – He has brought forth good from what the enemy intended for evil in your life.

Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.  (Psalm 9:10)

You know His name.  Trust Him.
