Got Your Number


Your phone rings

you answer it

you hear nothing

so you say nothing

then it happens

"Hello"

"Hello"

and you know

that as soon as you say something

the voice will

act like your best friend

telling you that you can reduce your interest rates

or have the cleanest gutters in the neighborhood.

The voice

got your number!

The saying

Got your number

means

"To have leverage, control, knowledge, or power over another individual." (google)

Hmm...

but do they really

as they don't know me

as they don't know you,

they really just

got our phone number...

Because

if they really

had

control

knowledge

or power

over me

they would say,

"For I know the plans I have for you. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

"Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for a child she has borne? Even if that were possible, I would never forget you! See,

I have engraved your name on the palms of my hands." Isaiah 49:15-16

Because

He got my number

He says,

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27

Because

He

got my number

&

Because

He

got your number

He knows

when I, _____________ (PUT your name)

sit down and when I, ____________, stand up;

He understands

my, ______________'s, thoughts from far away. Psalm 139

So

before

hanging up the phone

I would hear

&

you would hear

Be still and know

that

I am God.

Psalm 46:10
