Names of God
Today as I was doing my Bible study questions one really stuck out to me. It was concerning Moses (Numbers 16) and how he knew how God was going to react to Korah. The question made me ponder how well I really know God. I know that I am saved but do I really KNOW who God is? I have a desire to study in depth who God TRULY is. Often I find myself reading quickly and just getting the the idea and not fully understand the depth what I am reading. I am hoping that this will get me to slow down and have a focus. So I am going to try to start at the beginning with:
Elohim is Creator in Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
What do I know of God as the Creator? I know I am daily amazed by how wonderful God's creation is. I see my babies grow and I am awed by how wonderful God formed them in my womb. I watch the baby learn to use her hands such a seemingly simple thing but the complexity of it boggles my mind.
I love this time of year when things are starting to grow. There is so much beauty in God's creation that I have a hard time finding words. This week I am going to take time out to meditate and read about God the Creator.
For this is what the LORD says—
he who created the heavens,
he is God;
he who fashioned and made the earth,
he founded it;
he did not create it to be empty,
but formed it to be inhabited—
"I am the LORD,
and there is no other. Isaiah 45:18
