Power of His Name

No, I am not repeating myself!  Observe the humble preposition change from in to of.  Scholars claim there are more than 144 names for God in scripture that describe a different aspect of His character and greatness.  But did you know seven of God’s most power-filled names are found in the Shepherd’s Psalm-Psalm 23 which might explain why it’s the most loved and quoted Psalm recorded.  True, nothing can surpass the poetic beauty and visual symmetry of the allegory found in the King James version, but inherent in the words is a saving power that attracts peasant and prophet, doubter and devotee, sinner and scamp when trouble looms.  The text following each name is another source of the name.

Consider:

1. The Lord is my Shepherd–Jehovah Rohi means guide. (John 16:13)                                     2. I shall not want want–Jehovah Jireh–provider.   ((Philippians 4:19)                                   3. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me aside still waters–Jehovah       Shalom — peace (1 Thessalonians 5:23)                                                                                           4.  He restores my soul–Jehovah Rapha–Healer (1 Peter 2:24)                                                5.  He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake–Jehovah Tsidkenu– right standing– (1 Corinthians 5:21)                                                                                             6.  Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me.–ever-present–(Hebrews 13:5)                                                                                  7. Your rod and staff, they comfort me.  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.–Jehovah Nissi–banner  (Isaiah 59:15)

So next time you feel weak and lonely, recite David’s Psalm and let God’s names infuse you with Divine power.
