I was thinking the other day about God and how it’s pretty incredible that he created people and languages. The incredible thing is that He hears and understands everyone in every language. One of my favorite moments ever was in the Dominican Republic. We were sitting on the beach watching the sunset, and we eventually started singing. We sang “Great I AM”. It was one of the coolest moments because some us were singing in English and some in Spanish our voices mingling.
God heard and understood every single one of us.
He is the great I AM.
Languages are fascinating. As a missionary kid, I learned the importance of learning whatever language is dominant because that speaks to people’s heart. It’s one thing to know the trade language, but to have people communicate in your first language—the language of your heart—is powerful. It means these people and maybe this God loves me enough to come to me and meet me where I am.
God loves us enough to meet us where we are and the more we know about Him makes us love Him more.
There’s a song sung by Kari Jobe that states:
“The more I seek you
The more I find you
The more I found you, the more I love you
I wanna sit at your feet
Drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breath, feel your heart beat
This love is so deep, it’s more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it’s overwhelming”
The more we seek our Creator who loves us enough to speak our heart language, the more we fall in love with Him.
This might mean setting aside time in your busy schedule to slow down and meet with Him.
This might mean skipping something that could be good, in order to sit at the feet in prayer of the One who placed the stars in the sky.
Whatever this means for you, I greatly encourage you to seek the Great I AM. You won’t regret it.
