The crystallized water was floating onto 255, matching the color of the Ford not far ahead. Wait, it couldn’t be...could it? Is that who I think it is? Accelerating slightly above the recommended speed, I closed the gap. I created a melody with my horn after my suspicions were confirmed. Back to the right lane. Two minutes later, I became visible in their rear view mirror again. Unacceptable. I couldn’t let them beat me to church! An increased velocity of my vehicle corrected the situation. All was well.
Our love of competition is a funny phenomenon. We seek to be the fastest, strongest, smartest, etc. The truth is competition doesn’t exist. Sure, it’s easy to compare humans and determine who is better skilled in a particular area. But when God enters the picture, He is the Heavenly Host with the most mosts.
He is the highest Being, the Creator of the universe. He deserves the most praise for His wonderful works. Yet, He is the most humble. The Author of Life did not consider equality with Himself when He left His throne to enter the world as an infant and live in a no-name town. This journey concluded in the most humiliating form of torture and death.
The love of the Alpha and Omega knows no limits. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither height nor depth, neither the present nor the future, nothing is powerful enough to add or subtract from His love. His love is omnipotent, most powerful and most loving.
The I Am is more real than we can fathom. He has more dimensions to His character (the Trinity). He has no past or future. Being timeless, He simply exists. He is not I Was or I Will Be. The I Am. We change over time. Who we truly are is yet to be fully realized. Not so with the Father of the heavenly lights who does not change like shifting shadows.
Abba possesses the highest level of compassion. The perfect parent, His heart burns with the same pain that causes us to shed tears. Because He chooses to share the pain of every chipped and shattered heart, He has felt more pain than any of us. He aches to love us in spite of this cost; He is the most vulnerable.
The Bread of Life is the most blessed. Blessing flows from a life of walking with God. His infinite wisdom demonstrates how to reap the most benefits out of any situation. Joy and peace flow from living according to His design, which He does perfectly. He is the most godly.
The King of Glory. Lord of Lords. Lamb of God. Mighty One. my Refuge. my Redeemer. my Salvation and Rock. Jehovah. Yahweh. Great Physician. Prince of Peace. Righteous One. my Daddy. God Most High.
