Jehovah

I have learned so much about who God is through writing this series of devotionals. Our God is truly EVERYTHING that we will ever need in this life. I am so grateful that we have a loving God that shares His names with us so we can call on Him in any situation, at any time. He has a name that we can call on for any circumstance that we may find ourselves in. I chose 6 for this devotional series, but there are so many more. He is all powerful, all knowing, everywhere at every moment. How GREAT is our God! How AWESOME is our God!

Some of the things that I learned from writing these devotionals:

Jehovah Jireh is the God of provision. As a single mom, there have been so many times when I didn’t know how the bills would get paid and how I would provide for 5 kids. I often called out to God to provide. Jehovah Jireh heard the cries of my heart and has ALWAYS provided.

Jehovah Nissi is my banner. It doesn’t matter what battles I face in life, God is my victory.

Jehovah Rapha is my healer.  He heals me physically, emotionally and spiritually. I had pneumonia for 6 weeks in 2006. I was caring for 5 children 13 and under. I struggled through work until the doctor told me to stay home or she would put me in the hospital. I didn’t have the energy to crawl through my day, much less take care of 5 kids. In my illness, I cried out to my healer and Jehovah Rapha answered.

Jehovah Shalom is my peace. In this chaotic world, we need a corner where we can find peace. God has been that peace for me. Jehovah Shalom, my peace in a messy world.

Jehovah Shammah is always there. It has been such a blessing to know that God is everywhere we go, knows everything we face and will never leave us to struggle alone.

Jehovah Sabaoth is the Lord of Hosts. I have faced battles in my life. Battles against other people and spiritual battles. I serve a God who is the commander in chief of not only heavenly armies, but also earthly armies. Nothing happens without His approval. When I cry out to Him in the midst of a battle, Jehovah Sabaoth answers and fights for me.

I pray that this devotional series has encouraged you. These are not the only names of God. I encourage you to research on your own, make a list of all the names of God, and use those names in prayer when faced with a tough situation.

I would also encourage you to use a journal to write down what each name of God means to you in your life.

This journey has drawn me so much closer to my Father. Praise His name! HE IS MY EVERYTHING!
