God of Wonders

What is in a name? - God of Wonders

Names in the bible are significant. e.g. David mears, beloved by God and man. And so king David was.
Jesus asks who do you say I am? A question to his disciples, but also all of us? He says the father's name ist o be hallowed (see the Lord's prayer) and that he and
the Father are one. So we should meditate on the holiness of his names. There are hundreds of names for God. They each provide a rich blessing of description.
One such name is: God of Wonders

The hymn says "God of wonders, beyond our galaxy, You are holy."

It is worth thinking on any wonder, no
matter how seemingly small, that we are blessed with in life.

God operates in both the magnificent out of the ordinary (e.g. Acts 2:19) and in the everyday. This God of resurrection wonder (Eph l:20) not only raised Christ, but daily raises up those in need. His blessings
are new every morning. He not only is a creative life giver at the beginning (ls 44:24), but continues to be
now. He promises that all things can be made new (Is42:9) and all creation is groaning like a woman in birth
pains for it. He and His kingdom are coming little by little, wonder, by wonder for he is the God of Wonders and is truly wonderful.
