The Living God

El Chay

“My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God” (Psalm 84:2).

Your God, the Living God, is real and powerful. When you acknowledge Him as El Chay, you understand that all the little gods with a lowercase “g”—the wood and stone idols of the past and the entertainments, enticements, and stock-market tickers of today—are not worthy of worship. The little gods, “cannot speak; they must be carried, because they cannot go by themselves...They cannot do evil, nor can they do any good” (Jeremiah 10:5). The Living God, El Chay, transcends culture and time. He speaks to you through His word and walks with you through your struggles. No wonder the Psalmist’s soul longed for Him!
