Immanuel. Jehovah. Yahweh. Lord. God. Jesus. Jehovah Shalom. Jehovah Nissi. Abba. Father. Holy Spirit. Something powerful happens in worship when we call out these names for the Lord. Your heart flutters. You get goosebumps. Tears may fall. There’s a level of intimacy that just cannot be explained.
Why? One may ask. Why do we melt when we call Him Yahweh? Why does Immanuel make us warm inside? Perhaps here’s why:
Our heart flutters when we call Him “Healer” because we have been sick. We cry at calling Him “Abba” because we have been fatherless. We shout “Protector” because we have felt unsafe. We are exclaim “Immanuel” because we have felt His presence to know that He is indeed with us
Our trials and obstacles have reveal just who the Lord, our God, truly is! Our pain and afflictions manifested His power for us. Our failures help us to see just how magnificent He truly is. The Name of the Lord is a strong tower because it has withstood all of our storms.
Sisters, let us not curse our struggles and tough seasons-those painful moments is where the intimacy of the Lord develops. Those moments are the unveiling of His name! Our trials stand as altars of what the Lord has done and out of that altars-we learn about the Lord in new and powerful ways. His name stands above every name because we have a personal testimony about that name.
Praise your Abba Father! Bow at the name of your Jehovah Shalom (Peace). Worship the Lord. Shout Hallelujah to the Miracle Worker.
He is the name above all names and He is worthy of our praise…
Peace and Blessings
