Adon Olam (Master of the Universe) reminds us that God is bigger than we know – more vast, fathomless – and yet His heart is for us, eyes are on us, and angels surround us. As the age-old question goes, “Is anything too hard for our God?” We immediately know with unfailing certainty: no, absolutely not. There is nothing too hard for Him.
Jeremiah 32:17 (VOICE) Eternal Lord, with Your outstretched arm and Your enormous power You created the heavens and the earth. Nothing is too difficult for You.

Chokma (Wisdom) reminds us that the Lord God Creator, who spoke the very world into existence, gives us wisdom if we will but ask. And surely no question we might have would exceed the complexity of the entire universe.
Proverbs 2:6 (TPT) Wisdom is a gift from a generous God, and every word he speaks is full of revelation and becomes a fountain of understanding within you.
James 1:5 (VOICE) [Voice Translation Commentary also included] If you don’t have all the wisdom needed for this journey, then all you have to do is ask God for it; and God will grant all that you need. He gives lavishly and never scolds you for asking. [Wisdom, as James understands it, is the ability to live life well and make good decisions. Wisdom doesn’t come from old age or hard knocks. Wisdom begins with knowing and depending absolutely on God, who is never stingy when it comes to wisdom for those who seek it. He supplies all the wisdom we need when we ask. But when we try to go it alone—without God—trouble is around the corner.]
Proverbs 2:7-8 (TPT) For the Lord has a hidden storehouse of wisdom made accessible to his godly ones. He becomes your personal bodyguard as you follow his ways, protecting and guarding you as you choose what is right.

Transformed by the Spirit represents the promise we have of the transforming power of Holy Spirit when we yield to His life-giving flow.
Matthew 3:11 (AMP) “As for me, I baptize you with water because of [your] repentance [that is, because you are willing to change your inner self–your old way of thinking, regret your sin and live a changed life], but He (the Messiah) who is coming after me is mightier [more powerful, more noble] than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to remove [even as His slave]; He will baptize you [who truly repent] with the Holy Spirit and [you who remain unrepentant] with fire (judgment).”
1 Peter 3:21 (AMP) Corresponding to that [rescue through the flood], baptism [which is an expression of a believer’s new life in Christ] now saves you, not by removing dirt from the body, but by an appeal to God for a good (clear) conscience, [demonstrating what you believe to be yours] through the resurrection of Jesus Christ…

The very moment I call to you for a father’s help the tide of battle turns and my enemies flee. This one thing I know: God is on my side! I trust in the Lord. And I praise him! I trust in the Word of God. And I praise him!
Honored (In Whom the King Delights to Honor) depicts the path that has been long and sometimes arduous, but you have searched His heart and His word, kept your spirit focused on the kingdom, and walked in humility, as a result He is exalting you. You are one worthy of honor. Worthy of praise. His hand on your life is clearly seen – visible for all to see. Like a glass – cleared and cleaned through time and experience with Him – and His light shining brightly through. He honors those who honor Him.
Romans 13:7 (VOICE) Pay all of them what you owe. If you owe taxes, then pay. If you owe fees, then pay. In the same way, give honor and respect to those who deserve it.

So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.
