Daily D – Judges 13:17-18
Judges 13:17, 18 Then Manoah asked the angel of the Lord, “What is your name? For when all this comes true, we want to honor you.” “Why do you ask my name?” the angel of the Lord replied. “It is too wonderful for you to understand.” (NLT)
Now and again, a conversation takes on depth and meaning only time and reflection most clearly reveal. Such was the case when a man named Manoah asked the Angel of the LORD, “What is your name?”
“Why do you ask my name?” the angel of the Lord replied.
“It is too wonderful for you to understand.”
A song from our younger days echoes in my mind when I read these words. Sandi Patty and Larnelle Harris singing More than Wonderful lead us into worship. (You can check it out here: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRTwUvZG5a0]
May your casual conversations today be filled with joy.
May they take on greater meaning as time goes by.
May they lead you into wonder.
May you ponder how you ever missed the precious presence of Jesus.
I will listen more attentively for the voice of Jesus.
Our Father, give me ears to hear what you are saying to me in every conversation. Amen.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
