February 11, 2019 – Amos 5:8

It is the LORD who created the stars, the Pleiades and Orion. He turns darkness into morning and day into night. He draws up water from the oceans and pours it down as rain on the land. The LORD is his name! Amos 5:8.

This Yahweh Jehovah Lord, Elohim God, Jehovah Jireh, provides for us. We consider how large our God is.  He created the Universe holding the cluster of stars called the Pleiades. How did our Yahweh turn darkness into morning and day into light?   

As I worship God, I recognize His Creation as stepping stones to wonder and worship.  The Stars are the lyrics to praise God’s awesomeness and power.  He alone is our Lord God Almighty, El Shaddai.

What is life?  This ‘breath by breath’ thing we are in.  When we are in trouble, we go to Jehovah Rapha, Who Heals.   Doing what is good in the eyes of our Lord is living righteously for our Lord by hating evil and loving Who is God.

We have a name, and we write its meaning each moment of our lives by choosing how to live and Who  to worship.  The mercy of El Shaddai  brings us the Peace of God, Jehovah Shalom.  God sent Jesus, His Son to earth to make a Way and teach us.  John 14:27.  “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”

Do what is good and run from evil so that you may live! Then the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies will be your helper, just as you have claimed. Hate evil and love what is good; turn your courts into true halls of justice. Perhaps even yet the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies will have mercy on the remnant of his people. Amos 5:14-15.
