Know Me Like I Know You

I am understanding intimacy better as I think of the intimate relationships that I have. I remember that when those relationships first started, we asked a lot of questions about each other, and spent quality time together. I made it a point to get to know the other person. Questions about their past, experiences, interests, desires were things that I wanted to be able to commit to memory. I wanted to know their deepest secrets…the things that they would not tell anyone else. While I sought to get to know them, I hoped that they were just as interested in getting to know me.

God knows us deeper than we know ourselves. He knew us before we were even created (Jeremiah 1:5). This morning I heard God telling me, “Sheridan, I want you to know me like I know you.” In Jeremiah 1:5, the word “knew” can be substituted with the word “chose.” Therefore he not only KNEW me, but also CHOSE me before I was created. God is saying, “I know you’ve chosen me, but when will you get to know me?”
