In business and planning clarity is very important and necessary in order to create solutions that are relevant and timely. In God’s world, clarity is not important. You might ask me why? To answer that question I will have to go over three terms that are prevalent in the Bible: Faith, Hope and Trust.
The second alignment with God in The Lord's Prayer is “thy name.” E. Stanley Jones explains that the word “name” stands for the character in Scripture. I never knew that.
