Jesus had nicknames for Peter (Petros meaning rock), James and John (Sons
of Thunder)--does He have one for you (see Mark 3: 16-17) ?
The Lord's nickname for me in this season is Chicken Little, for I always
assume that the sky is falling.
That does not mean that it isn't!! What it does mean is that I may
have lost confidence in the majesty of God and His sovereignty.
One thing I love about A.W. Tozer is his recognition of the glory of God and its'
importance. For instance, in "The Purpose of Man," he writes,
"This is what you are here for, to glorify God and enjoy Him thoroughly
and forever, telling the universe how great God is" (2009, 47).
When we fully magnify God, vain imaginations are cast down! In its place
God is elevated, and the enemy of our souls is put in his rightful place! Indeed,
God is more powerful and glorious than any time or season.
