One day, I find myself crying to the Lord in my distress and He worked in my heart. He didn't answer my question and free me from all my problems but He did open the eyes of my heart to know Him better. He showed me that He is a personal God that cares for each and everyone of His children by name.
The long list of names in the Old Testament is just one among the many other manifestations of His love; of how He remembers everyone by name and their origins. God know us by our names and call us to have personal relationship with Him.
Though I still struggle with my troubles, God has given me this revelation. He has lovingly reminded me that He is God who sees everything I am going through and He cares to know my name and to call me back to Him.
He also cares for you and He is calling you back to Him. We are created to be one in communion with Him. If we still haven't responded to His calling, this is the time to go back to the One who knows us by our name, know all of our flaws, but still choose to love us and is longing to be with us. He is a personal God who is calling each one of us to return to Him.
Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob, all the remnant of the people of Israel, you whom I have upheld since your birth, and have carried since you were born. Even to your old age and gray hairs, 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.
