A few fun facts about “You Know My Name:" It was cowritten with a dear friend, Brenton Brown; and it was the very first song written for the Heart. Passion. Pursuit. album.
At the center of our relationship with God is an absolute awareness of who He is to us. Worship is our response to the goodness of God. In worship, we confess the name of God simply because we have relationship with God. This relationship is beautifully mutual. You know God’s name, but He also knows yours.
Have you ever stopped to wrap your mind around this amazing truth? The God who knows the name of each star that fills the sky is the same God who knows YOU by name! More than just knowing our names, He walks and talks with us. He allows His divinity to engage with our humanity in precious moments of communion.
“You Know My Name” is the gentle reminder we so often need on the days when we lose sight of who we are. It’s an assurance that no matter what anyone else has called or labeled you, God knows exactly who He created you to be. It’s a song of peace when life gets a little foggy and fear sets in. Isaiah 43 reassures us that we need not fear because God tells us, “I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.”
Wherever you are on your journey, be confident in this: you’re not alone. You’re surrounded by the nearness of a God who knows you by name.
