GOD KNOWS ME

“I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…” (Isaiah 49:15b-16a NIV)

What matters supremely, therefore, is not, in the last analysis, the fact that I know God, but the larger fact which underlies it -- the fact that He knows me.  I am graven on the palms of His hands; I am never out of His mind.  All my knowledge of Him depends on His sustained initiative in knowing me.  I know Him because He first knew me and continues to know me.

-- J. I. Packer in "Knowing God"
