Today’s Reading: Exodus 5-6
Key Verse: Exodus 6:2
And God spoke to Moses and said to him: “I am the Lord.”
In Scriptures before this passage, God said His Name is “I Am.” Now He adds greater insight into His Eternal Being. He is “the Lord.” The original Hebrew, in its English form, is “Jehovah.” Out of respect for that holy Name, the observant Jew will leave a blank when writing it and will not even speak that Name. It’s a form of honor to God. The word translated “Lord” means, “self existent or eternal.” I’ve just done a quick count and found His Name well over 10,000 times in the Bible. I have in front of me, Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, a book about three inches thick where every word that comes to mind appears in the Bible. The Bible is the “Word of God.” That does not indicate that God spoke every word. It does inform us that God supervised the writing of every word in the original languages over a 1500-year period of time by various people so that what God wanted written was done as He wanted it done. God speaks and introduces Himself to us. Isn’t that great!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, I worship You, and as Jesus said, I am to love You with “all my heart, my soul, and my mind” (Matt 22:37-38). You would not have commanded me to do this without giving the grace to me so that I could obey You. I pray and believe for that grace now Lord God. In the Name of the One who loved You completely, Father God, the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:I am at a loss to express adequately with my heart, soul and mind the infinite greatness of the Lord God. The magnificent anthem, “How Great Thou Art” is a wonderful expression of awe toward God. My son-in-law, Bruce Stacey, came close to expressing fully how I feel in his composition, The Scroll. This work was the centerpiece of “The Pavilion of Promise” at three World Expos, Vancouver ’86, Brisbane ’88 and Seville ’92.
