Well, it's hard to believe it's been three months since my last newsletter, but it's true. Time flies, when you're having fun, right?! I was working in my garage this morning and I came across something that I thought I should share. I prayed about and felt that I should go with it, so here we go.
Do you know Who we serve? I mean, yeah, we know it's God but do we really know Him? Getting to know another person takes time and effort. It is the same with God. He comes to us in a variety of ways and not everyone interacts with the Almighty in the same way. What I discovered in my garage was a listing of the names of God and it's not even an exhaustive list. I can sometimes meditate on these to learn and understand (or at least try to) more about God. My last favorite "the Ancient of Days" from Daniel 7:9. It really causes me to ponder, what does that mean, the Ancient of Days? It just scratches the surface of who He is. Below are some more names for you all to ponder, meditate, and consider. Doing this increases my faith and gives me peace and confidence as I try to step out to what God calls me, knowing that the "Lord of All" Acts 10:36 is directing me. Here is the list:
Advocate I John 2:1 Almighty Revelation 1:8 Alpha and Omega Revelation 1:8 Amen Revelation 3:14 The Author and Finisher of our Faith Hebrews 12:2 The Bread of Life John 6:35 The Corner-stone Psalm 118:22 Counselor Isaiah 9:6 Deliverer Romans 11:26 Everlasting Father Isaiah 9:6 The First and the Last Revelation 1:17 Good Shepherd John 10:11 Great High Priest Hebrews 4:14 Holy One Acts 3:14 I AM John 8:58 Immanuel Isaiah 7:14 Jehovah Isaiah 26:4 King of Kings Lord of Lords I Timothy 6:15 Light of the World John 8:12
Well that's half the list and enough to consider as we come up on Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday. May God bless you all. Continue the work God has called you!
