Being a lover of good strong “full bodied” java, the write ups in coffee advertisements using terms like, “flowery” amuse me. Do I choose a coffee for its delicate aroma; should it tease my senses like a fresh cut flower? Am I looking for a morning cup that could be used as cologne?
NO! I don’t want a cup of wimpy coffee. I like my coffee to be down right BOLD! In the same way, I’m the type of person who needs a bold God. My God has to be ALMIGHTY!
My God is not a god whose name can be used as a generic cuss word. My heart breaks for people whose god is so wimpy that they can say, “My god, it’s hot outside.” Seriously? Your god is so ordinary you can use his name to describe the weather? Why on earth is he your god if he’s that common?
That’s why I’ve chosen to serve the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords. He is the Alpha and Omega, the creator of the universe. Jesus Christ, the Lord God Almighty is my God! Who is YOUR God?
Psalms 104: 1-5 Praise the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants. He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.
Prayer: My Lord, you are very great and holy. My heart is humbled by the understanding that you could love me so much that you want to spend time with me, to talk to me, to listen to me. Thank you that you have chosen me to be your child. I love you. Amen.
Exodus 20:7 You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
