Being around those who know us is love. We surround ourselves with friends and family because it feels safe to be known and accepted. But where do we turn for love when we are surrounded by people who do not know us? Do you truly know yourself? The good news is that you are never alone because God is always with you. He knows you even better than you know yourself. He offers to show you who He designed you to be, His beloved creation. Will you let Him show you your true identity? You think about it, let's talk about it.

TRANSCRIPT:
Hello world! Today I speak on “Knowing Your Self.”

One time I was in Singapore, I wanted to talk to a friend of my father’s, an acquaintance of mine as well. I looked up his name in the directory and I phoned him. We carried a pretty good conversation, but about five minutes into the conversation, we both suddenly realized that he was not the person I was looking for. We had a healthy conversation but he was not the person. Maybe you have the right name, but you don’t know the person. Actually, I’m talking about you. You look in the mirror and you ask yourself, “Do I really know myself?” It’s an important question, because unless you know yourself, your identity will not control you, will not be focused, will not give you energy and motivation.

Several times over the years, I’ve been to the bustling capital, text capital of the world, Manila, and everybody’s texting all the time while they’re stuck in traffic. They have used text abbreviations like “1-4-3” for one letter, four letter, three letters. You know it: “I love you.” Or I love you with “8-3-1.” Now what does that mean? It’s eight letters, three words, and one conviction/belief.

I’ve got good news for you. Somebody who really knows you well has texted you. He is the Divine Shepherd of your soul, because He knows His own, He says. And my own know me. In this classic presentation, the Lord Jesus says, “I know you really well, I created you. I’ve gone after you even though you’ve gotten lost. You don’t know yourself but I know my own, so if you relate to me appropriately and rightly, if you trust me as your Savior, the Shepherd Savior of your soul, you will know yourself.”

In airports across the world, I arrive without knowing a single soul. I look for somebody with my name on a board or who calls out my name on the airport announcement system. And sometimes they don’t show up. I look around to see if they’re late. I attempt to reach them. And then finally, somebody who I’ve never known from Adam shows up to say, “Are you Ramesh Richard?” Wow, that gives me great relief, because somebody knew my name.

I’ve got good news for you—Somebody who knows your name, knows your face, knows all about you, says, “For you to know yourself, I ought to know you, and you ought to know me.” And so God sends a text message down just for you. 1-4-3: I love you. 8 letters, three words, but one conviction. “For you to know yourself, you’ve got to know Me. I know you. Would you like to know me? So you’d like to know yourself?” That’s the Lord Jesus’ invitation to you. Write to me. Check me out. Click on the link below. I want to hear from you right away.
