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.
