A Light for My Path Devotional

Jesus Knows Me

Jesus Knows MeJOHN 10:14 (KJV)
I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

“Jesus loves me! this I know, for the Bible tells me so”— It’s impossible to say how many I’ve sung this little song in my lifetime. Even as an adult, I sing it to myself as I’m working or driving because the profound truth of these simple words touches my heart every time I hear them. Jesus LOVES me! He really, really loves ME! I still marvel at that reality. It’s the foundation for my faith and belief in God.

Recently I came across those same words in rearranged order. The sign read, “Jesus knows me, this I love.” Wow! That’s powerful, too! Jesus KNOWS me. The Son of God, the King of Kings really, really knows ME!

Put the two thoughts together and it’s even more astounding—Jesus knows me and He loves me! Believe me, not everyone who knows me loves me, but Jesus does. What assurance and comfort that brings to my heart and mind.

Want a blessing? Sing the words below and meditate on them. Turn them over and over and over again in your mind. Let the incredible truth of these words saturate your heart and mind, and the problems of the day will seem much smaller, the negative messages of the past will fade, and your fears of the future will be calmed.

Jesus Loves Me

Jesus loves me! this I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.

–Anna B. Warner, 1820-1915

Jesus Knows Me

Jesus knows me! This I love.
Though He sees me from above,
Still His presence lingers near,
Gives me hope, and joy, cheer.

Yes, Jesus knows me! Yes, Jesus knows me!
Yes, Jesus knows me! He sees me from above.

–Ann Shorb, 2011

Lord Jesus, it blesses my heart—even though it absolutely astounds me–to know that You know me. When I call on You, I am not just a number or a blank face, but I am Your unique creation, totally known and unbelievably loved by You.

    Jesus my lord…
    He choose me when before i born..
    He gifted this world as a heavenly father,
    He came to Earth for wash our Sins where He died on the Cross like he was Son of Father.
    Again He Reborn on third Day of his death, now he blessing us likes Holy Spirit.
    So He is the only god to all.
    Hope Jesus, He Never Fails.
    Finally, in this world, whatever u search then surely u can get Sin. But If u search the Jesus, He will give a place to his heart and heaven where no hungry and thirsty.
