Word of the Month for August
“Divine” is a holy word that means God-like. Our God is excellent, delightful, and heavenly. Divine also means angelic and supremely good. Whatever proceeds directly from God is divine. Revelations 5:12 explains: “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.” The Spirit of God dwells within us! How divine!
