My Jehovah God

The Father’s Covenant names reveal His attitude towards
us. Jehovah means the self-existent One Who reveals Himself.
In His Jehovah names, God reveals His covenant care for His own. I mentioned
Jehovah Jireh the Lord our provider
yesterday. He has promised to take great care of us as we trust and obey Him. I
also mentioned Jehovah Raah the Lord our
Shepherd.
We are in His care as sheep are watched by the careful eye of a
wise shepherd.
 
Jehovah Nissi (Genesis 17:15) means the Lord our banner and refers to the Father as our strength and
victory in tough circumstances. He is the One who provides the promised victory
in every test and difficult battle that life brings our way.
  
Jehovah Tsidkenu (Jeremiah 23:5-6) refers to the Father
as the Lord our righteousness. When
you feel guilty and condemned because of present failure or by remembrance of
your past, keep in mind that the Father has given you the same standing before
Him that His Son Jesus has! You’ve been made the righteousness of God in Him (2
Corinthians 5:21). Our sins have not just been covered, but they have been
completely obliterated. The legal term is expunged! Every record of our
wrongdoing in the library of heaven has been destroyed. So when you miss it,
confess your sin. He is faithful and just. You are righteous in His sight.
 
Jehovah Rapha (Exodus 15:26) means the Lord our healer or the Lord who heals. When you are attacked by
sickness or disease, reach up in faith to your covenant God and appropriate
faith for Him to heal you completely. He is faithful that promised. Believe
that you receive healing for your body the moment symptoms appear. He forgive
all of our sins, and heals all of our diseases (Psalm 103:3).
 
Jehovah Shalom means the
Lord our Peace.
Happiness comes from happenings, our surrounding
circumstances. But peace comes from within. Your world can be falling apart
around you yet the peace of God can buoy you up and help you in the crisis
moment. Peace with God is available through the forgiveness that Jesus offers by
His blood. The peace of God is ours as we walk in obedience and honor the
precious Holy Spirit in our lives.
 
Jehovah Shammah means the
Lord is present.
This is the presence of God that floods our lives when the
Holy Spirit takes up residence within us. We are never alone. When loneliness
rises up in you, remind yourself that the
Lord is present.
He has promised that He will never leave or forsake His
own. He is not a feeling. He is a Spirit. He’s still around when you feel
nothing.
 
Our God never changes. What he was, He is! Take advantage
of the covenant names of God in your daily life. See Him as your victory in
tough times, your righteousness when you feel guilty, your healer when the
enemy attacks with sickness, your peace in times of turmoil, and the Ever
Present One when you feel alone. He’s just the best!
