I can hardly fathom the magnitude,
the magnificence, the wonder
of an awesome God.
My view of him is like a child looking at
a tall tree from the bottom of the trunk.
There's no way to fully explain or
fully comprehend God.
God's name as we know it in the English
is so limited.
The Hebrew words are more defining.
I'm not a Hebrew or Greek scholar.
Even if I were, there's no way in my finite mind that
I could attempt to define God.
The word for the God of Israel was Yahweh.
His name was so holy that it was written YHWH
and often prayed, El Shaddai, God Almighty.
To use the actual name was considered an unholy
act of irreverence.
Jehovah Jirah, the God who provides
El Roi, the God who sees
Johovah Rapha, the God who heals
El Shilaom, the God of peace
My times of worship most
often begin with praise
in words that I understand God to be,
Almighty God, Most High God, Sovereign Lord,
Everlasting Father, My Rock, My Refuge,
My Present Help in Time of Trouble,
Awesome in Power, Holy God, Prince of Peace.
One thing I know,
He is a personal God.
He desires a relationship with me.
He desires to walk with me, hand in hand.
This I can relate to.
