In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1our book study, Praying the Names of God. I have really been looking forward to this!
The name of the LORD that we are meditating on this week is Elohim. The LORD reveals this name immediately in Genesis 1:1. What a majestic moment it must have been "In the beginning..." Yet, each day, I have the chance to see His creations around me.
I Love the beauty I see in the LORDS creation, from the smallest things to the most majestic. This ancient name, Elohim, reminds me to look for Him in all of His creation. Often, when I take the time to do this, I immediately feel a connection with Him. My worries, or stresses begin to blur as I take time to LOOK, BREATH, FEEL, TASTE, TOUCH all that Elohim has created.
Today, I will think on the name, Elohim, and remember His majesty and mystery, His sovereignty and power and draw near to the One who created all of man in His image and thank Him!
