#THENAMEOFTHELORD

Names are powerful. “Names often reflect the characteristics of a person or the aspirations or wishes for that person of the one bestowing the name”(The NIV Thematic Bible). The Scripture reveals many names of God, such as Jehovah Sabboath (The LORD of hosts), Jehovah Shalom (The LORD of Peace), Jehovah Nissi (The LORD our banner). His names tell us about His character and reputation. His names reveal who He is. His name also identifies His people because we bear His name. We bear His name because we have been made righteous through Jesus Christ, God’s begotten Son’s suffering, shedding of His precious blood, dying on the cross and resurrecting. While other people may walk in the name of their gods, we believers, who are called by the name of the living God will walk in His name, who is God for ever and ever. Let us go to Him with our fears and anxieties in faith for,“the name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe (Proverbs 18:10).” Halleluiah!!
