But I’ll keep coming closer and closer to you, Lord Yahweh, for your name is good to me. I’ll keep telling the world of your awesome works, my faithful and glorious God! Psalm 73:28 Passion Translation
I was going to post this in another version this morning, but as I read this, I fell in love with the line, “for your name is good to me.” What part of His name has been good to you? There are so many to list and I simply don’t know how to spell them all or I’d make the attempt, but let me say this; there is no other name on earth that does what His names do for me.
The closer I get to God, the more I realize how little I know of Him. As I’ve needed Him in certain areas, I’ve learned those aspects of Him in my life. First as Father when my own dad was killed at a very young age. I stepped into His arms and He’s never released His hold on me. That has changed my life and the way I see Him. I believe until we understand that He is indeed Love, we will never understand who He is or why He sent His son for us to restore a very broken relationship.
Everything He does is motivated by that deep and abiding love. His healing touch, His constant provision, His direction and positioning, His protection and so very much more.
When I snuggle close to Father, there’s absolutely nothing I’m afraid of. There’s a trust that only comes from deep intimacy, and there’s deep intimacy that only comes by deep fellowship, and deep fellowship only comes with time spent and love shared, and shared love only comes from trust. See the cycle? You can’t have one without all the others.
When was the last time you sat snuggled close to Father? Take time this morning to snuggle!
