Abba

20170628_140719

No doubt, the concept of God as our Father, was a radical one in Biblical times. I’m sure Jesus called Joseph, his earthly father – Abba.

It is a Hebrew word, meaning Father, and some have said it goes deeper than that. It’s really more of “Dad”, or even “Daddy”.

I remember years ago hearing the word being used in a real setting, a Jewish bookstore. The son spoke to his Dad several times saying, Abba. Their relationship was close, and it was real.

Aren’t you glad God is like a father to us? He is close and He is real.

Heavenly Father, thank for loving us, and caring about every detail of our lives. Amen.

Adonai Yireh

 

100_1837Adonai – from the Hebrew, meaning “the Lord”, the boss, the ultimate One in charge.

Yireh – also from the Hebrew, meaning our provider, the One who supplies our needs.

Some are familiar with the term Jehovah Jireh, which is not really Hebrew, and comes to us through German, but the meaning is the same.

By the way there is no “J” sound in Hebrew.

 Lord God we are so grateful that you are in charge, and that by your mercy and care for us, you provide for all of our needs. Amen.

Be Still and Know

“He says, Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth.

The Lord Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress.”

Psalm 46: 10, 11

Thank you God that you are our fortress!

And that we don’t have to live in fear, even when considering our current events.

Soaring on Wings Like Eagles

20170628_172207

“…but those who hope in the Lord

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings

like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk

and not be faint.”

Isaiah 40: 30, 31

Note: The word for hope here is not a passive term, as in waiting for a bus. It is an active word, as in seeking and trusting in.

I believe this is the essential part of having faith.

An Offering

20170503_161259

This blog and these posts are an offering. Before I ever began, I gave it all to the Lord, and it was really a step of faith. Faith blogs are never the most popular, and that’s because of our world becoming increasingly secular.

But having said all that, it does appear that someone is manipulating this site and perhaps even scaring people away. Are there trolls? Probably. Are they Russian hackers?? I doubt it! Lol.

Think it couldn’t happen here? Simply look up Psalm 29:11, on my site. The difference of people being involved in March of this year, and now is remarkable.

One thing trolls do not understand though, is the concept of offering. If God blesses these posts – great. And if not that’s OK. It is in His hands. I will keep posting.

Heavenly Father I trust in You, and I ask that you would continue to guide me with this site. Show me how it should be done. I give this all to you, once again. In Christ’s name, amen.
