You are a phenomenal person if you did not already know. You have talents and gifts that God has given only to you.  You make God look good when you use your gifts to bring acknowledgement to Him. God is not unknown to His family and He lets others get to know Him through his family the church. Paul lets the world know, yes there is a God and his name is Jesus.

Acts 17:22-34 Common English Bible (CEB)

22 Paul stood up in the middle of the council on Mars Hill and said, “People of Athens, I see that you are very religious in every way.23 As I was walking through town and carefully observing your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: ‘To an unknown God.’ What you worship as unknown, I now proclaim to you. 24 God, who made the world and everything in it, is Lord of heaven and earth. He doesn’t live in temples made with human hands. 25 Nor is God served by human hands, as though he needed something, since he is the one who gives life, breath, and everything else. 26 From one person God created every human nation to live on the whole earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God made the nations so they would seek him, perhaps even reach out to him and find him. In fact, God isn’t far away from any of us. 28 In God we live, move, and exist. As some of your own poets said, ‘We are his offspring.’

29 “Therefore, as God’s offspring, we have no need to imagine that the divine being is like a gold, silver, or stone image made by human skill and thought. 30 God overlooks ignorance of these things in times past, but now directs everyone everywhere to change their hearts and lives.31 This is because God has set a day when he intends to judge the world justly by a man he has appointed. God has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.”

32 When they heard about the resurrection from the dead, some began to ridicule Paul. However, others said, “We’ll hear from you about this again.” 33 At that, Paul left the council. 34 Some people joined him and came to believe, including Dionysius, a member of the council on Mars Hill, a woman named Damaris, and several others.

When we have chance to let someone know our God (Yahweh) we should let Him be known. Do not be afraid to talk about Him or speak His name. You will not have to force Jesus on someone; the opportunity will present itself quite naturally where you can talk about your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Someone will hear the truth in what you are saying and believe; just like in this scripture with Paul.
