Day 44: Elohim Tsebaoth

Turn us again to yourself, O [Elohim Tsebaoth].
    Make your face shine down upon us.
    Only then will we be saved.

Psalm 80:7

Elohim Tsebaoth (or Sabaoth)*: God of Hosts (or God of Heaven’s Armies)

*This name of God is directly related to Yahweh Sabaoth used by Hannah, Samuel’s mother. If you haven’t already, the post from Day 22 is worth a read!

Has anyone ever looked at you like that, with their “face shining”? Like when they look up and see you, and just the sight of you lights them up? Now imagine that person, with that expression, and picture that as the face of the top commander of the most powerful military in the world when he sees you. By day, the most powerful person in the universe. By night, completely lit up by the sight of you. Imagine if that person – was the God who commanded hosts of angels, Elohim Tsebaoth.

Now imagine you get kidnapped. HA. Poor kidnapper.
