About Discovering My God Series
God has a plan for the present crisis and for the most critical need of mankind as well. In discovering my God as He is, my life is forever changed!
After these things the word of the Lord (Adonai) came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
Genesis 15:1 NKJV
(See also Complete Jewish Bible translation.)
“After these things.”
Abram made a series of choices in the trenches of life. He chose to engage in war to rescue captives. He chose Melchizedek, the priest of the Most High over the king of Sodom. He chose to make God his source, refusing wealth that could have easily been his.
The values we choose evoke a response from God. Our knowledge of His names depends on our wrung-out choices under pressure. And all experiences are a choice TOWARD God or AWAY from Him.
