I enrolled in a Bible study that focuses on the names of God. Each name expresses his different capacities to relating to humanity. These names allow for the worshiper to connect with God on a personal level. They are used to call on him for different purposes. The name of Elohim represent God as the creator of all. I’ve been able to invest some time absorbing the great essence of Elohim’s magnitude, in fact I’ve been spending some quality moments communicating with him. The experiences I’ve been having since I became Christian are profound. Each expression of grace reassures my faith. I feel that the universe is so specifically manufactured that it would be hard to question the existence of nothing.
Amplified Bible, John 1: 1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or over power it or appropriate it or absorb it.
Most of my life I’ve been able to associate to a supernatural presence, guided by wisdom far beyond my reasoning. It wasn’t until studying the teachings of Christianity that I discovered this was the blessings from the Holy Spirit.A near by public park provides the best overview of a monumental nature preserve which is home to a bountiful array of local wildlife. This area became a place where I would pass by while taking an afternoon run. It wasn’t until connecting to Elohim that I began to take small breaks from my busy exercise routine just to gaze into the landscape. Then one day while sitting on the bench contributed by fundraising foundations I became fully mesmerized by a paddling of ducks. They gracefully floated on top of the water and I wondered what kept them so buoyant, these ducks were like Jesus walking on water. A clear sharp thought popped into my mind: “Your homework, read the Bible sections about Jesus walking on water”.
This is how God has been speaking to me. These thoughts are his words. The scriptures are written to exhibit the supernatural powers of Jesus. It also inspires to keep the focus on Jesus in tribulations filled with fear and doubt.
