Isaiah 43:1: The Savior of Israel But now, O Israel, the LORD who created you says: "Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. (NLT)

Wonderful news, isn't it?! What does your name mean? Mine is a derivation of Laura - it means Laurel Crowned. Hmmmm.........

Just knowing He knows my name makes me feel very special and magnifies my personal relationship with God. In the sea of billions on earth He knows my name! When I go before Him in prayer He hears Laurie praying.

That He would bless us and share this wonderful news with us through His prophet Isaiah is so soothing in times of trouble. He won't forget us. He knows our names. Just like a parent knows each one of their identical twins when no one else can tell them apart He knows each of us.
Praise God!
