God Knows Us Although We Do Not Know Him

Yahweh of Israel had Isaiah write to Cyrus of the Medo-Persian Empire long before he was even born (Isaiah 45:1-7), and the Lord wanted the prophet to stress this very point,
“For Jacob My servant’s sake,
And Israel My elect,
I have even called you by your name;
I have named you, though you have not known Me.
I am the LORD, and there is no other;
There is no God besides Me.
I will gird you, though you have not known Me…”
(Isaiah 45:4-5)
Imagine that once you have grown and become aware of the world, you discover that God had one of His messengers write a letter to you, revealing your purpose for being born, in this case to deal with Israel. How would you react to that?
That was what happened to Cyrus. Friends, it has also happened to us. The Lord knows every one of us before we know Him. Read the Bible to find out what He says is your purpose for having been born.
