It was very interesting to find out that in Hebrew, the him part in Elohim is actually plural and points to the triune Godhead. Elohim is used in Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God [Elohim] created the heavens and the earth.
On day five Kay discussed the purpose we were created for.
But now, this is what the LORD says— He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. ....... ... everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made." Isaiah 43:1,7 (emphasis mine)
I love how Kay tied this in with the scripture in 1 Corinthians that says:
...the woman is the glory of man. 1 Corinthians 11:7
The word glory in the Hebrew language means "to give the correct opinion or estimate of." A woman is to honor her husband in such a way that it gives a correct opinion or estimate of Him as a man. So if we are created for God's glory, then our purpose is to live in such a way that it gives all of creation a correct opinion or estimate of God.
What does this Name, Elohim, mean to me personally?
For me, when I think of God as The Creator, I see a glimpse of how we were created "In His Image". Elohim has placed some amount of creativity inside all of us. We generally think of creativity as some artistic ability but that isn't the only form of creativity. Many people who aren't artistic are very creative thinkers. Elohim is both artistic and a creative thinker and it is abundantly visible in His work. I find it wonderful and amazing that He would take such an incredible piece of Himself and place it into the hearts of men.
I also think about the fact that everything Elohim created is unique, even things that appear to be identical have some attribute that sets them apart from each other. Think about how incredible that really is. Everything that Elohim has created is a "first". Everything is a custom creation of His. You are custom made. That says so much about how much He values all of creation including every person, past, present, and future.
So how does Elohim - The Creator speak to you?
