Apostle Grace Lubega
Exodus 33:17 (KJV): And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.
God knows every one’s name. He knows that your name is Jane, that your father’s name is Gary or that your mother’s name is Elizabeth.
But what does He mean when He says, “I know you BY NAME?”
In our theme scripture, for instance, it did not mean that He knew Moses as ‘Moses’. No.
This knowledge is different. It points to a greater place of intimacy and acquaintance with the voice of God.
In Revelation 2:17, He casts light on this naming and says, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a NEW NAME WRITTEN, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”
This, beloved saint, is a deeper place of hearing God.
When you start to hear God in this higher realm, there is a way He calls you that is more than just what your parents named you.
There is a way God communicates with you that is deeper than communication through speech.
In this place, child of truth, others might hear the sound of a trumpet yet you will hear an instruction in the sound of the trumpet (Revelation 4:1); where others hear thunder, you will hear His voice in the thunder (John 12:28-29).
The Father is calling you to this place. He says, “come up hither” (Revelation 4:1).
Go deeper to go higher! And as you do, He opens your spirit to the diversities of how He speaks and ministers. Hallelujah!

PRAYER: My father, I am grateful for this knowledge. This day, I rest in the blessed assurance that you know me by name. My spirit is deeply yielded to divine instruction and the clarity of your voice. When you call, I hear. I hear more than just the voice, I also perceive instruction in every way you choose to communicate. To the glory of your name. Amen.
