The Name

“His Holy Name” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Exodus 6:3 (NLT)  I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as El-Shaddai—‘God Almighty’—but I did not reveal my name, Yahweh, to them.

In Exodus 6:3, God makes an interesting statement to Moses. He says, “I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as El-Shaddai—‘God Almighty’—but I did not reveal my name, Yahweh, to them.” There are Jewish scholars who claim that this Scripture isn’t saying that the forefathers of the faith didn’t know that “Yahweh” was one of God’s many names. Instead, the side of God’s character that the forefathers saw throughout their lives was only El Shaddai—the all-powerful God, their sufficiency and sustainer. However, generations later in Egypt, the children of Israel witnessed the character of God in a way their forefathers did not. Yahweh—whose very name reflects that He is the source of all existence and being—showed His power in a way that completely defied the laws of nature. Continue reading “The Name”

The Name of the Lord

“Refuse to Be Moved” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Proverbs 18:10 (AMP) The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs to it and is safe and set on high [far above evil].

Occasionally, there can be times of spiritual warfare where fear and anxiety can plague a believer; keeping the enemy at bay often requires persistence and a commitment to having the mind of Christ. I remember in one particular season, the battle was even more difficult because I could not always stop in the middle of what I was doing to pray, discern, and address every fear and shift my thought life. One night, I went to bed physically exhausted—both from a long day of work and the nagging grip of anxiety that had plagued me all day. Yet in my exhaustion, I found myself wielding a powerful weapon against that anxiety—the Name of the Lord. Continue reading “The Name of the Lord”

I AM Listening

Psalm 77:1 (VOICE) I cry up to heaven, “My God, True God,” and He hears.

Beloved, when you cry out to Me, I always hear. No matter where you are or what you’ve done, I AM always listening. I do not turn a deaf ear to you in punishment or neglect. Those who know Me know that does not align with My character.

Just as an earthly parent uses wisdom in granting their children’s requests, so do I. In the moments I don’t respond the way you expected, know that is not a sign of My neglect, but rather of your inappropriate expectations. I’m not a genie in a bottle to call and command, so be sure that is not your expectation.

What I AM is El Chai – the Living God, and I love My children, and am mindful of their needs and their cries – of all things concerning them. So know that I AM present and listening. I will never leave you nor forsake you. So cry out to Me, beloved, for I AM listening.

Embrace Eternity

Luke 1:33 (NKJV) “And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

Beloved, I AM ageless. I AM beyond time. To know Me and the things of Me, you must embrace eternity. Your time on earth may be fleeting, but eternity is everlasting. Embrace the joy of knowing Me, and dwell in My presence.

Look to Me in times of trial. Look to Me in times of joy. Trust that with your eyes on Me, your walk will be secure. I reign. Let Me help you stay Kingdom-minded. Yield to Me – let Me embrace you in My loving arms, for I AM Olam Zerowa – the Everlasting Arms.  Continue reading “Embrace Eternity”

YHVH Cela (the Lord your Rock)

Psalm 18:19 (TPT) His love broke open the way and he brought me into a beautiful broad place. He rescued me—because his delight is in me!

Beloved, I AM YHVH Cela – the Lord your Rock, and I have made your feet secure. I have given you a firm foundation on which you can stand in safety. I take care of My children – the ones whom I love. 

Know that I delight in you. You are the apple of My eye. I have redeemed you because it is My good pleasure. I AM the Lord of the breakthrough. So look to Me and trust your care in My capable hands. Continue reading “YHVH Cela (the Lord your Rock)”

Call to Me and Receive by Faith

Luke 17:13 (TPT) They shouted to him, “Mighty Lord, our wonderful Master! Won’t you have mercy on us and heal us?”

Beloved, pursue wholeness and blessing. Refuse to settle for anything less. You know My character. Declare who I AM in faith of what you have yet to see. Call Me by name and by the attributes of My character, and then expect in faith. 

I AM YHVH Tsaba, the Lord of Hosts. I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your peace. I AM merciful and righteous, slow to anger and full of grace. Call to Me, beloved, and then receive by faith. 

Elohim Azar (God your Helper)

Psalm 40:2 (VOICE) He reached down and drew me from the deep, dark hole where I was stranded, mired in the muck and clay. With a gentle hand, He pulled me out To set me down safely on a warm rock; He held me until I was steady enough to continue the journey again.

Beloved, I AM Elohim Azar – God your Helper, and I will not leave you helpless. So in that moment you feel lost and afraid, reach for Me with full confidence, for I AM present. I AM YHVH Shammah – the Lord is present, and I AM with you to sustain you. 

Have faith in Me for I AM El Aman – the faithful God, and I will not desert My children. So when you find yourself in the darkness and when you feel pressed on all sides, rest in Me for I AM able – fully able, to help you in your time of need. I AM Elohim Yakol – God most able, so trust in Me. 

High and Lifted Up

Isaiah 54:5 (VOICE) Because the One who made you will be your husband; the One called Commander of heavenly armies Will set you right again, the Holy One of Israel. It’s not for nothing that He is called “God of all the earth.”

Beloved, I AM the One who loves you best. I AM the Lord your God, the Holy One, the Lord your Maker – YHVH Asah. I AM sovereign, and I AM mighty. I command the heavenly armies. I AM YHVH Sabaoth, the Lord of hosts. 

What do you think you have to fear? I AM the enthroned One – high and lifted up, who is above Me? Who is mighty enough to stand against Me? And you have chosen to stand at My side and under My protection. So again I say, what have you to fear? Rest in Me.
