We all have a name. We even have nicknames given to us by those who love us. We distinguish each other by our names. It is one way we tell each other part.
Nearly everything in our life has a name to help us set things apart in this world. Names make us unique.
I found an island I think has the coolest name. It is called the “No Name Key.”
It’s a part of Key West. I have no idea if people live there. But I think it’s cool, because it reminds me that although the island has no name it is still beautifully created by God. Still it is His.
So when you feel lonely – like you have no name in this world – remember God knows your name.
And it isn’t “No Name.”
God knows you intimately and loves you. Isn’t that a comforting, beautiful thing?
But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. ~ Isaiah 43:1 ESV
