Exodus 33:17

“And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken; for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.”

It doesn’t matter how many children you may have you know each one by name.  Even if you have more than one child and you confuse the name of one child with the name of other, still you know each of your children by name.  Likewise, God knows each of us by name but unlike us He will never forget or get us confused with one another.

When God called Moses out of the burning bush He called Him by name because He knew Moses, Moses was His child.  And here God says to Moses “I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken; for thou has found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.” Simply because Moses found grace in God’s sight and God knew him by name God would show Moses His glory.

For the very same reasons God will do the things that we’ve asked Him to do because He has given us His grace and we are His children and He knows us by name.  Matthew 7:11 says “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?

The grace of God is Jesus Christ, it is because of His finished work that we are the sons and daughters of God, that He calls us by name and we call Him Father.  Therefore, whatever you ask for He will do it.
