“Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Psalm 9:10
Maybe you’re wondering what David meant when he spoke of knowing God’s name. You are probably aware that there are people who know about God and have heard His name, but still don’t believe in Him or pay any attention to Him. Well, that is not the kind of knowledge David meant. He goes on to say that to know God’s name really means to know by experience what kind of a God He is. So when we hear His name we are reminded immediately who he is – reminded of his faithfulness to all who turn to Him. To know Him that way prompts us to trust Him, doesn’t it? That’s what this verse is telling us.
