There are several things I want to do here in 2023.
One of them is to go through the alphabet identifying and describing names and attributes of God.
Our first letter of the English alphabet, of course, is "A". It corresponds with the first letter of the Greek alphabet which is "Alpha".
“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.” Revelation 1:8
Let’s start with A and worship Him because He is:
- Above all the noise and negativity we are bombarded by today.
- Above all the glory we see and seek here on earth.
- Above all power fought over in our homes, community, church, world governments.
- Above all created things.
- Above angels.
- Above the universe - the immeasurable parts we can see and the even more immense part we can’t.
- Above the greatest human love we’ve ever known or even imagined.
- Above everything and person of worth. Our worth comes from Him alone.
- Above our imagination and and ability to comprehend
- Above all time, weather, and physical laws you put in place to keep the our solar system and earth in order.
- Above all the ways we diminish Him in our minds.
- Above our rejection and refusal to admit His greatness.
- Above all and solely worthy of our worship.
As Paul tells the church at Ephesus, “…He is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come.” Ephesians 1:21
If you were going to add something to the list of things He is above, what would it be? I’d love to hear from you!
I really like that you put in that He is above the ways we diminish Him in our minds. That is something that I have been thinking alot about lately.
