I'm so glad you are here! I hope during your visit you get a glimpse of God's heart for we become what we are gazing at. I pray that God refreshes you and gives you readiness to persevere in what He has for you today.
My desire is to be a blessing to you in helping you know God more and make Him known so I've made these Resources available to you and have the Missional Living blog tab for practical ideas of how to live on mission right where you are. And currently I am writing my way through Judges sharing glimpses of God's heart and character for a weekday devotional. To check out the entire series so far head on over the the Judges Devotional. And if you are a blogger, come on over on Friday's for a blog hop.
"Then Manoah inquired of the angel of the LORD, "What is your name, so that we may honor you when your word comes true?" He replied, "Why do you ask my name? It is beyond understanding." Judges 13:17-18
Your love colors the dawn, Your voice the power of thunder.
Your hand the healer of the weak.
Your love fills oceans and Your voice calms the seas and You created me.
Your eyes are so amazing, so deep,
like crashing waves on a cloudy seas and these pounding waves they consume me.
There is so much more to you. So much I do not know.
So much love I have yet not encountered, so much you over flow.
And just when I think I know your complexities, You step into the light.
And just when I think I know Your voice, You open up my ears.
It's like trying to know every single glowing star on a cloudless night.
But Your depth and Your vastness keep me running after you.
Now & Forevermore * Shake Off the Dust
God is eternal. We could spend our entire life and all of eternity learning about just one of God's attributes, say for instance His goodness or love and we would never arrive coming to know all there is to know about it. Amazing! The same with every single one of His attribues, His grace, patience, grace, justice, power and on and on.
And even if we made a list of all His characteristics for our entire life did nothing but add to this list and spent all of eternity doing the same, we would never come to the end of the list. Incredible!
So yes, of course when Manoah asks the Lord (without knowing it was the Lord) what His name was, the answer was "it is beyond understanding." We will never know all there is to know about God. How humbling. Humbling that we wont ever know it all, and humbling that even what we do know was given to us by the Lord. He was the One who enabled our minds to get a glimps of Him. What a gift! The great I AM making Himself known to the I am not's.
Oh Lord, there is so much more to You. So much we do not know. Thank you for the incrdible privledge to know You, thouh not in full. Thank You for the opportunity to discover You and always get to have more and more "wow" moments. Thank You Lord. Please help us not act as though we know it all, but re-ignite in us a passion to pursue You whole-heartedly.
All of Creation reveas the glory of God, the character of God. And God's Word reveals the glory of God. Lets be people who see.
