"Jesus should be seen not just a good person, but as Lord " by: Caleb Gibson

   The Hebrew Word Adonai reminds us that God guides our life. 
   This Hebrew word closely connected to the identity of God is this word, Adonai, which in Hebrew means, “Lord.” 
   Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines the word Lord as, “a ruler by hereditary right or preeminence to whom service and obedience are due.” 
   This word occurs 300 times in the Old Testament. 
   It’s the plural for of the word, “Adon.” 
   In Genesis 15:2, Abram called out to the “Lord God,” in Hebrew he said, “Adonai Yahweh.”
The word Adonai isn’t technically a name for God. It is a title, and it is a beautiful title. 
   It can be used for someone who isn’t God. Sometimes we may think negatively about this idea of Lord because of how we may see evil people rule. 
   God is a good ruler. 
   To say Lord is to say that He is the alpha of the group. His words are not just good sayings, His word is truth. 
   When Jesus healed a blind man, he picked up some dirt, spit on the dirt, made mud, and put it on the man’s eyes (See John 9:6). 
   I laughed with our church Sunday and explained how I’m glad that in a way this man did not see what Jesus was doing when He doing it. 
   Yet I’m sure he heard the sound of Jesus spiting and the movement of the dirt. 
   The man simply followed the voice of God. That’s what we must do. 
   We must go where God wants us to go and do what He wants us to do. To clarify, this does not mean we must always seek word from the Lord each time we buy shoes.  
   This is about making the most out of your life. How do we know what God wants for our life? 
   We follow the word of God, the Bible. The Pharisees did not see Jesus as Lord, they called Him, “Rabbi” which means teacher.  
   They never got a miracle from God because they never saw Him more than a teacher. 
   Begin to see Jesus as not only a good person, begin to see Him as your Lord. 
   Those who saw Jesus as just a good man, never got a miracle. Yet those sick in the Bible called Jesus Lord, they were healed. 
   I’m believe that when you see Him as Lord, you will receive your miracle. 
   Continue to study the Hebrew words that describe God. 
   I like what Andrew Wommack once said, “God is El Shaddai, not El Cheapo. The Lord will take care of us better than we take care of ourselves.” 
   When we begin to trust in the Lord, we have nothing to fear. Remember what God spoke through Isaiah, “For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake,  
   But My loving kindness will not be removed from you…” (Isaiah 54:10).
