He Knows Your Name

April 12, 2016

Psalm 33:18 AMPC … Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness.

A Song:
In His eyes, In His eyes
You are precious in His sight –Is 43:4,1
In His eyes, In His eyes
So much love in His eyes
Held in His gaze
Ever before His face
On His palms engraved –Is 49:15-16
He knows your name …

Isaiah 49:15-16 NASB … Can a woman forget her nursing child and have no compassion on the son of her womb?
Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.
16 Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.

From NetBible Is 49:16

  • inscribed[02710] = engraved by cutting, to cut in stone as hewing a tomb in the rock

Isaiah 43:1-3 AMP
1 But now [in spite of past judgments for Israel’s sins], thus says the Lord, He Who created you, O Jacob, and He Who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you [ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives]; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.
3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt [to the Babylonians] for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba [a province of Ethiopia] in exchange [for your release].

Do not be afraid
Those who are Mine
Are kept through the deep waters
Are kept through the fire
Are kept and not forsaken!

Those who are Mine
Are kept because they trust Me
And have set their love upon Me
They have a personal knowledge of My mercy and love.

Do not be afraid
Those who are Mine
Are kept as the apple of My eye
Safe and hidden beneath My wings!

Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings. -Ps17:8

Psalm 91:1,14-15 AMP
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

From NetBible Ps 91:1,14-15

  • *  In this psalm an individual (perhaps a priest) addresses one who has sought shelter in the Lord and assures him that God will protect him from danger (vv. 1-13). In vv. 14-16 God himself promises to keep his loyal follower safe.
  • * The Lord is compared here to a bird who protects its young under the shadow of its wings (see v. 4).
  • *  The divine name used here is “Shaddai” (שַׁדַּיshadday; see also Ps 68:14). Shaddai (or El Shaddai) is the mighty king (sovereign judge) of the world who grants life/blesses and kills/judges. In Genesis he blesses the patriarchs with fertility and promises numerous descendants. Outside Genesis he both blesses/protects and takes away life/happiness.
  • dwells[03427] = abides, remains, have one’s abode, to marry (give a dwelling to)
  • set his love[02836] = clings to, will not let go, devoted to


Fear not-Those who R Mine-R kept safe-Beneath My wings-As the apple of My eye-Because they trust-love& cling to Me!

Savior Please Steer Me

March 11, 2012

Psalm 107:25-26,29-32 NLT … He spoke, and the winds rose, stirring up the waves. 26Their ships were tossed to the heavens and plunged again to the depths; the sailors cringed in terror.

29He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves. 30What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor! 31Let them praise the LORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. 32Let them exalt him publicly before the congregation and before the leaders of the nation.

Isaiah 43:1-2 NLT … … the LORD who created you says: “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown!” …

When the waves rise
When it feels as if I’m being tossed to the heavens
and plunged again to the depths
Savior please, steer me.

Through deep waters and great trouble
Through rivers of difficulty
Ever present Savior please, steer me. -Ps 46:1

Let the Sun of Righteousness rise
and lead me on
Sovereign Savior please, steer me
To safe harbor
Thru the storm in stillness
Held by the One to whom I belong.

Cling to Me

July 3, 2011

Isaiah 27:2-5 (The Message)

“At that same time{in that day},
… a fine vineyard will appear. {a vineyard of red wine}
… There’s something to sing about!
I, God, tend it.
… I keep it well-watered.
I keep careful watch over it
… so that no one can damage it.
I’m not angry. I care.
… Even if it gives me thistles and thornbushes,
I’ll just pull them out
… and burn them up.
Let that vine cling to me for safety,
… let it find a good and whole life with me,
… let it hold on for a good and whole life.”

Come to Me
Know my unfailing love
I have called you by name
My love is everlasting
Be drawn to Me
-Jer 31:3
Cling to Me, cling to me like a vine
Like the true vine clings to the Father
-Jn 15:1
I will keep you safe
My love is eternal
Forever I am yours and
You are mine.
-Isa 43:1

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, His mercies never
come to an end. –Lam 3:22 NRSV

Word Study

From NetBible Isa 27:5

  • cling[02388] = to fasten upon, bind, cleave, take hold
  • safety[04581] = a place of protection, refuge, stronghold (to prevail)
  • good and whole life[07965] = completeness, soundness, welfare, peace
    • from [07999] = to be in a covenant of peace

From NetBible Isa 27:3

  • keep[05341] = to guard with fidelity, preserve

From NetBible Jn 15:1
I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

  • vinedresser[1092] = husbandman
  • The imagery of the vine underscores the importance of fruitfulness in the Christian life and the truth that this results not from human achievement, but from one’s position in Christ. … To some degree the figure is similar to the head-body metaphor used by Paul, with Christ as head and believers as members of the body. Both metaphors bring out the vital and necessary connection which exists between Christ and believers.

Morning Salute

October 9, 2010

Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,
… so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
… until He has mercy and loving-kindness for us. -Ps 123:2 AMP

My hands are stretched out to You: my soul is turned to You,
… like a land in need of water. (Selah.)

Be quick in answering me, O Lord,
… for the strength of my spirit is gone: let me see your face,
… so that I may not be like those who go down into the underworld.
Let the story of Your mercy come to me in the morning,
… for my hope is in You:
… give me knowledge of the way in which I am to go;
… for my soul is lifted up to You. -Ps 143:6-8 BBE


I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope.
My soul waits for the Lord,
… More than those who watch for the morning––
… Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.-Ps 130:5-6 NKJV

Lord Jesus help us always look to You and place all of our hope in You and Your word. Give us hearts that thirst only for You. Help us to lift up our souls and know that we belong to You.

O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. -Ps 90:14


You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. -Jer 29:13

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!”

“The people whom I formed for Myself will declare My praise”. -Isa 43:1,21
