"...where there had been a trickle, there now was a river which led to sure power and safe guidance from God as we were increasingly better able to understand Him.
"So, practicing these Steps, we had a spiritual awakening about which finally there was no question. Looking at those who were only beginning and still doubted, themselves, the rest of us were able to see the change setting in. From great numbers of such experiences, we could predict the doubter who still claimed he hadn’t got the 'spiritual angle', and who still considered his well-loved A.A. group the higher power, would presently love God and call Him by name."

מי עלה־שׁמים וירד מי אסף־רוח בחפניו מי צרר־מים בשׂמלה מי הקים כל־אפסי־ארץ מה־שׁמו ומה־שׁם־בנו כי תדע
Who has gone up to the heavens and come down?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has bound the waters in a garment?
Who established all the ends of the earth?
What is His Name, And what is His Son’s Name, If you know it? -Proverbs 30:4
יהוה עזי ומעזי ומנוסי ביום צרה אליך גוים יבאו מאפסי־ארץ ויאמרו אך־שׁקר נחלו אבותינו הבל ואין־בם מועיל
O יהוה, my strength and my stronghold and my refuge, in the day of distress
the gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say,
“Our fathers have inherited only falsehood, futility, and there is no value in them.”
היעשׂה־לו אדם אלהים והמה לא אלהים
Would a man make mighty ones for himself, which are not mighty ones?
לכן הנני מודיעם בפעם הזאת אודיעם את־ידי ואת־גבורתי וידעו כי־שׁמי יהוה
“Therefore see, I am causing them to know, this time I cause them to know My hand and My might.
And they shall know My Name is יהוה!” -Jeremiah 16:19-21
