With a group of ladies at church, I am going through Kay Arthur's study, Lord,I Just Want to Know You. While I've studied the names of God before, it's hitting me this time with a fresh awareness of how important it is that we know God's names so we will know His character.
This week we've studied Him as El Shaddai, the All-Sufficient One, and Adonai, the Master. Kay Arthur talks of how these names go together, how submitting to Christ as my Master will bring me to the point of recognizing Him as enough for every empty place in my heart. " You will never know His sufficiency apart from knowing Him as Lord, as Master, " she writes, "Commitment to the will of God should be the norm for every one of His children."
If I'm committed to His will more than I'm committed to getting my way, I'm find Him always sufficient.
