I have had a Mastercard since 1999. But when there was a problem with my card today and I called, they had no idea who I was. The first representative I spoke with could not comprehend the meaning of customer or service. So that conversation ended abruptly when he said he could no longer hear me. Funny, I could hear him.
It was a very frustrating few minutes as I tried to confirm my identity for this representative. It didn’t matter that I had been a card holder for 16 years. It didn’t matter that I pay my bill on time every month. It didn’t matter that I could tell him the account number and other pertinent information. Because I couldn’t answer his two questions, I had no identity.
Fortunately, when I called back, the next representative understood the meaning of both customer and service and she was able to confirm my identity and then quickly resolved my issue.
God has always known who I am. Our relationship is so intimate that, according to Psalm 139, He “perceives my thoughts”; He’s “familiar with all my ways”; He knows “when I sit and when I rise”; and He even knows the words on my tongue before I say them. There is no identity crisis here, nor will there ever be.
God knows me. He knows you too. Now the only question that remains is do you know God?
