“For You Know Your Servant.” 1 Chronicles 17:18

King David just heard the words God had for his ears. It’s mind-boggling when I consider how well the Spirit of God knows me. All the fears I hate to admit, the shameful ideas that pop into my head, the dreams I wish would come true—God knows His servant inside and out.

Truly this knowledge ought to comfort us. Isn’t being known what every human being craves? Why else would social media be what it is? Woven within the fabric of our being is the need to be known. Oh, I don’t like to admit it. I much prefer projecting self-confidence, self-assurance, independence as a means of protection.

But with God, I am free to be me. With God the walls of defense disappear and little by little I’m stepping out. Yes, people still let me down. But in a spiritual sense, I hold fast God’s hand, and knowing He knows me so well, rejection does not feel so bad.

“I will give them a heart to know that I am the LORD, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.” (Jeremiah 2:7)
