“…but I Know Who You Are.”

“I will hope in Your name, for Your name is good.” (Psalm 52:9)

The words in this song stay with me: “Sometimes I don’t know what You’re doing, but I know who You are.”

When we can’t understand the reasons, we choose to trust His love and His goodness, His wisdom and His grace. We choose to trust Him.

One of my favorite scriptures to remember when I am in need of hope is from Isaiah 40, when Isaiah says that God ‘tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart.’

The other day I asked my daughter what she thought of God and she said ‘He is our great holder.’

I think it’s one of the best descriptions of the Father that I’ve ever heard. He is my Great Holder.

I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.~Isaiah 46:4

I would love it if you would share your hope in who He is…will you kindly consider leaving a comment with your favorite scriptures that speak of who He is? Can you share a little bit about who He has been in your life?

  1. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corithians 10:4-5

    These scriptures brought great hope during a particular dark time in my life. The hope that comes from knowing that no matter what the enemy throws at us, we are not fighting alone. We are not using earthly weapons which can be destroyed, but weapons of the heavenly realm that are mighty in God! We are armed with God’s word. He has supplied us with what we need. What greater hope can we have in this dark world than knowing God is on our side and fighting for us! We are more than conquerors and are assured victory through Him.

    The dark time in my life? I leaned upon this scripture and hope was fulfilled as the light chased the darkness away. Strongholds were pulled down, lives were changed, and victory came!

    1. I am so glad that He doesn’t leave us to fight the darkness on our own…but instead gives us everything we need to walk in His victory. He reigns over everything in this world…and is with us through every battle. (The God of Angel Armies is always by my side!) Thanks for sharing this awesome testimony…you’ve reminded me to ‘take heart’ because He has overcome!

  2. Isaiah 43:1-2 (NIV)
    1But now, this is what the Lord saysβ€”
    he who created you, Jacob,
    he who formed you, Israel:
    β€œDo not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
    2When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
    and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
    When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.

    Sunday morning, December 27, 2009, we were given this passage at our church service. Two days later, on December 29, we learned that our 3 year old son Chase had leukemia. I had no idea how many waters and fires we would have to pass through for the next three and a half years, and believe me, there were many. These two verses became to be such reassurance for me; promising me that I was never ever alone in this or any other situation. God is faithful!

    1. Sabrina, thank you so so much for sharing this piece of your story. I cannot even imagine everything you and your family have been through. It is such an encouragement to know that our Father was with you every step of the way through the waters and the fires…true to His Word, even in the middle of one of the hardest things a parent’s heart can face in this world. You have strengthened my hope today.

    1. Thanks, Frank…what a wonderful response. It is so awesome to think of His heart pursuing ours and all of the ways He reveals His love to us. I am so grateful that He loves us first, even while we were far from Him. Falling in love with Him changed (and continues to change!) my life and my heart.
