Jehovah-Chereb – Lord the Sword
Deuteronomy 33:29 (MSG):
Lucky Israel! Who has it as good as you? A people saved by God! The Shield who defends you, the Sword who brings triumph. Your enemies will come crawling on their bellies and you’ll march on their backs.
In my opinion, the Message translation of this verse really brings it alive! We all know that God is a loving God, yes, however, He also is a God of justice and vengeance. As you think about Jehovah-Chereb, praise Him because He will always protect you!
Jehovah-Eli – Lord my God
Psalm 18:2 (NLT):
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.
We have all heard this saying: I’m between a rock and a hard place. With that being said – God will always provide! We have seen it time after time at Bethesda House as well as in my Wife and I’s personal life – a bill is due, and we do not have it, someone mails in a check or makes an online contribution. We can trust Him, folks!
Jehovah-Elyon – Lord Most High
Psalm 78:35 (AMP):
And they remembered that God was their rock, And the Most High God their Redeemer.
When we are in worship – it is important to give praises to our God. You can use this Name for this – Jehovah-Elyon. What you are saying here is this – “God, You are higher than anything in my life!” I’m reminded of the Iowa State Fair’s slogan – Nothing Compares. God, You are Most High in my life – Absolutely Nothing Compares to You!
Jehovah-Gador Milchamah – Mighty in Battle
Psalm 24:8 (NLT):
Who is the King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty; the Lord, invincible in battle.
Life is a constant battle – in fact, I really feel like there is at least one person reading this article who is about to give up. You have become battle weary. You are tired, depressed, and feel like you are alone. You are not alone though – Jehovah-Gador Milchamah is right beside you! Call upon His Name – even right now. He has never, nor will He ever lose a battle!
