He said, "I will be with you; and this shall be the sign for you that it is I who sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God on this mountain." (Exodus 3:12 NRSV)
I'm reminded of a first-grade teacher who was overseeing her students as they experimented with their new desktop computers. One young fellow sat staring at the screen, unsure how to get the computer going. The teacher walked over and read what was on his screen. In her most reassuring voice, she said to him, "The computer wants to know your name." She moved on to the next student expecting that the boy would understand to type in his name on the computer keyboard.

Instead, the boy leaned toward the screen and whispered, "My name is David."

Some of us may approach God with the same sense of mystery. Perhaps we've spent too much time trying to explain God's reality and not enough time standing back in worship and awe.

Lord Jesus, may my worship of our Father in heaven reveal a strengthening love. Amen.
