One of my favorite songs is Need You Now by Plumb and the chorus goes like so:

How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.

There was a time not long ago that I was feeling down, depressed and a little worried.  Okay, a lot worried.  This song played over and over in my head and I sang it to God through tears so many times I couldn’t count.

On my way home from church this evening, this song came on the radio and I was reminded of pouring my heart out to my Father through this song.  The funny thing was, I couldn’t remember why.  What had I been so worried about?

Now, as I’m writing this post, I remember what it was, but it took me awhile to think of it.  Not because I’m getting old, I’m sure!  But because my God is bigger than anything I could possibly go through.  I clung to Him and He delivered me from my worry!

I encourage you to cling to Him!  The chorus to this song is so powerful.  Use it as a prayer, say it (or sing it) earnestly to Him and see how He moves.  I love when my children come to me.  How much more does God love it when we come to Him?

Is there anyone in this world who knows exactly who you are?  I mean really knows you … your very core of who you are.  I would guess not.  Sometimes, I don’t even know who I am myself.  But God knows me.  How wonderful that makes me feel … secure and loved.  He knows my innermost being and loves me!  Nothing can I hide from Him, but He knows my every thought.

In Psalm 139, David describes just how much God knows us.  But if you’ll read 1 Corinthians 13:12 you’ll see the other side of the beautiful coin.

“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”

Can you imagine what it will be like to stand face to face with God … knowing Him as He knows you?  Knowing the very core of His Being?  I will know fully, even as I am fully known!  Glory to God!  Finally being able to understand who He really is and comprehend His unfathomable love for us.

Everyone will stand before Him … the lost and the saved … and “every knee shall bow and every tongue confess”.  Everyone will know Him as God Almighty, but His own will also know Him as Father.

Something to dwell on.  Something to praise God for.
