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!
[Melchizedek] blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth. And blessed be God Most High, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.”
Genesis 14:18-20 NASB
It appears that the priest and king of Salem first introduced Abram to the names of Elyon (Most High God) and Elohim (Creator and possessor of heaven and earth). Abram had experienced this God and Melchizedek helped him to understand, by name, the character of the One he had met.
In much the same way, the Spirit of Christ has to reveal the Father following life’s trials. We often cannot see Him in the midst of it, only after it’s over and we look back.
Life-as-it-comes ever shows us new aspects of our Heavenly Father.
