We had a wonderful and really historic Saturday at First Pen, as we hosted the 9th Annual Daughters of the King Conference.
The speakers were wonderful and most wonderful of all, is that they all live right here in Ottumwa! Right here in River City!
We are blessed blessed blessed to have these great teachers and leaders planted right here in our midst!
It is not an accident.... nor is it "luck" that we are here together at this place and time.
Thank you to the Daughters of the King Conference Board for putting together such an amazing group of women!
Our Sunday morning message was so rich with instruction in the Word today.
One message that really jumped out to me is that our God has another name that I had not "seen" before. I am sure I have read this scripture many times, and in fact recently read it in our daily bible reading. But today, Pastor Richard showed us from Exodus 32:14 that the Lord God calls himself by his own name... a different name than I had noticed before.
"Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God."
I have known and used the phrase "jealous God" but had not let my brain take in this Name.. very special name of God by which he calls himself.
the Lord, whose name is Jealous....
He is jealous for YOU, beloved. He does not want to share you with anyone or anything else.... no one else can care for you and love you as He does.
Let that wonderful truth sink deep into your spirit today!
