To Be Known by God

Galatians 4:6-9

6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.

8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. 9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?

What a beautiful passage.  God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts.  Now we not only know God but are “known by God”.  Think about that for a minute…..  We are known by God!  Not that we just know some things about God, or think we know God, but he knows us and put the Spirit in our hearts.  How comforting.

A lot of people know about God in the world but are they/you known by God?  If so do you find comfort and strength in order to turn from our worldly ways?
