Do You Know God That You Can Trust In Him?

“Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you” (Ps. 9:10).

It says, “Those who know your name will trust in you…” – those who know the Name of God will trust in Him.

There are those who read that verse and entertain the thought that not everyone who knew God would trust Him. Before they jump into that conclusion, first, they need to consider these words from the Daily Bread:

“It's one thing to know about God, but it's quite another to know Him personally.”

“It's not enough to know God with your head; you must know Him in your heart.”

“Knowing about God may interest us, but knowing God will change us.”

And, surely, those who knew the name of God were different from those who knew about God, those who knew Him with their head.

Those who knew His Name – not those who knew how to pronounce His Name -- were those who knew Him personally. They knew God with their heart. They knew and beheld His Supreme Attractiveness. They knew that God is not only Love, but also Holy, Just and Trustworthy, so they trusted in Him!

Those who are not attracted or do not trust in God are not those who exercise their human will, so they ignore or refuse to trust in Him, after they know that God is Attractive or Trustworthy. They do not really know God personally. They do not see the Supreme Beauty of God.

But, those whom God reveal Himself will really choose to trust in Him.

Have you?
