About Meeting Adonai Series
God moves radically toward us and deals mightily with us when we see and receive Him as Adonai. Meeting Adonai, Owner and Master, changes everything.
Genesis 15:5 AMPC
And He brought him outside [his tent into the starlight] and said, Look now toward the heavens and count the stars – if you are able to number them. Then He said to him,
So shall your descendants be.
Yah Veh had promised Abram a child of his own. And Abram believed him, but because God was his personal Master Adonai, Abram could boldly ask for assurance. And God would reveal the most amazing visual picture-promise to the man He owned.
Abram dreamed of one child. God gave multitudes.
Such is Adonai.
On a personal note, this little messenger is in a painful struggle to convey the staggering truth hidden in Abram’s story: the astounding result of letting God OWN you—your finances, your possessions, your hopes, your loves, your very self. I am not able to put into words my sense of wonder at our God and the intense passion with which I want you to see this. And live it! It is so real and true!
