Francesca Battistelli is one of those young artists who came onto the Christian music scene like a young Amy Grant. While Francesca hasn’t achieved the legendary status of Amy, she has appeared in Woodlawn in 2015 and God’s Not Dead: We the People in 2021. Subsequently, you can add actress and musician to Francesca Battistelli’s rising career. One of my favorite songs from Francesca is He Knows My Name.
And Saul said, Who are You, Lord? And He said, I am Jesus, Whom you are persecuting. [b]It is dangerous and it will turn out badly for you to keep kicking against the goad [to offer vain and perilous resistance]. 6 Trembling and astonished he asked, Lord, what do You desire me to do? The Lord said to him, But arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do, Acts 9:5-6.
One of my favorite sitcoms growing up was Cheers. The theme song of Cheers sang about a place where everybody knows your name. The lyrics of He Knows My Name sings about an invisible God who knows your name. Sometimes you may have an encounter like the apostle Paul or be still enough to hear the whisper of God speak to your heart. If you ever find yourself struggling with doubt, remember that God knows your name.
