How often we hear
of a certain percent –
perhaps fifty-five, or eleven,
ninety-nine or seven –
presenting its picture of health, wealth, or self.
How often God speaks in a different way,
I AM one hundred
As we hear,
we humbly, meekly, gratefully pray,
I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
– Deuteronomy 32:3, 4
