Last year I did a post entitled
and as I awakened this morning that title was on my mind.
I thought of how special it makes me feel
when someone recognizes me and speaks my name.
I thought of the nicknames that my husband and I gave
to our children when they were very young,
and how it still delights them when we call them by those names.
And then I thought of all these names for God
that I have been posting the last four years...
And I felt that still small voice of the Holy Spirit whispering to me
that God Himself likes for us to call Him by name, too.
|I remembered God's words to Moses in Exodus 6:2 when He said,|
"I am Yahweh - the LORD.
I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob
as El Shaddai - God Almighty -
but I did not reveal My Name Yahweh to them."
|In Psalm 18:46 King David spoke OF God as His Rock,|
but in Psalm 28:1, he spoke directly TO God as His Rock.
|As I started off my day today,|
I talked TO the LORD, My Banner,
thanking Him that He was going ahead of me today,
...and in my heart I felt His smile!
