I am a person who finds it special that God speaks to me and humbling to think that God might use me to speak to others.

Scripture:   Amos (NIV) 7:8  And the LORD asked me, “What do you see, Amos?”  

Amos 8:2 “What do you see, Amos? He asked. 

Observation:   Amos was not born into the priestly tribe.  He called himself a “shepherd” who also took care of “sycamore-fig trees.” (7:14)   He had no reason to expect God to speak to him or through him to the nation.  Yet God “took him from tending the flock.”  The LORD spoke to him, and even called him by name!  

Application:  Amazingly, God knows me by name.  It is a personal relationship I have with God, and it is a personal relationship He has with me.  Among the billions of people on earth, God knows my name!   May God’s name be safe in my mouth.  Although many speak His name thoughtlessly, God allows me to use His name.  And what a privilege it is to know that He uses my name.  He calls me by name! 

Prayer:   Lord, I often have trouble remembering names, but you have never forgotten mine.  May I always speak your name respectfully and in a meaningful way!   Amen
