The Names of God: Elohim

There is so much debate on how the earth was created. It’s really not complicated, Genesis 1:1 says in the beginning God created heaven and earth. If He created where we live and the very air we breathe it only makes sense He created every living thing in it (as His Word also says). If He created us and knows us by name, if He created this world, He can most certainly handle anything that happens to us in it. His power is without measure and I’m in complete awe of His never ending love for us. Have you looked at the sunsets and sunrises that He hand paints or seen a beautiful cascading waterfall designed by Him? He is Elohim, “The All-Powerful One; Creator” and He knows us better than we know ourselves. When you seek Him, He will give you Devine wisdom to get through this life. And when you feel you can’t go on, He will carry you. 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

I came in from my Neurologist appointment with a pounding migraine, for the fourth day in a row. I really wanted to just go to bed, but the Lord has laid it on my heart to be faithful with these post so I pressed on. As I read today’s passage, my heart was filled with joy. The love of God is so perfect and pure. He sent His only beloved son to clear us of our sin debt before we were even born. Jesus died knowing we would be born into sin, but loves us so much that He gave His blood to cleanse and cover us from the sin that we would have to our account. When you ask God to forgive you for those sins and ask Him into your heart, you become grafted in as sons and daughters of the most high God. The enemy will try hard to regain the territory he lost, but nothing can separate us from the love of God. What joy and comfort fills me as I meditate on today’s passage. Children of God, we are His and nothing can change that. When we come to Him, we are far from perfect. He already knows we are human. He is just looking for us to keep pressing, keep trying. He will be right there, never letting us down. 🦅 #f8ithgal

“38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Romans 8:38-39

The Names of God: Adonai

If you have every seen a beautiful sunrise, you understand how majestic our Father is, if He has ever delivered you from a battle you face, you know how great He is. If He has defeated the devil and delivered you from your afflictions, you know He is The Lord! He does all of the things, not because He has to, but because He loves us that much! He is Adonai, The Lord; My Great Lord” and so worthy of our praise! 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see [it] together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].” ~ Isaiah 40:3-5

I love this passage. It says the Lord rejoices over us with joy and He will joy over us with singing. How special is that?! God rejoices over His children. Not only does He know us by name, He joys over us with singing! Next time you are feeling down or alone, remember our Heavenly Father loves us so much that He sings over us. He will save you from whatever you face my friends, even depression, sickness, and financial turmoil. You are never alone and never helpless, God has you in the palm of His hands! 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.” ~ Zephaniah 3:17

The Names of God: Yah or Jah

God is Yaw or Jah, “I Am; The One Who is The Self-Existent.” Exodus 3:24 is one of my favorite verses. God tells Moses to tell the child of Israel he was sent by I Am. He has been since the beginning of time. He never changes and His promises never fail. He is a good Father, faithful to His children. His love is never ending and His presence never forsakes us. He is I Am that I Am. 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.” ~ Exodus 3:14

The Book of wisdom given to us by our Father says to ask and it shall be given you. It says to seek and you shall find. Finally, it says to knock and it shall be given to you. God would not have placed this in the Bible, our Manuel for this life, unless it was true. There is no need too great for Him, He can meet them everyone. The key is to ask in accordance with His plan for your life. He will not give us anything that will harm us or anything against His will for us. He sees what we don’t, He is all knowing. When we seek Him with our heart, He shares His. As we continue to seek Him, His ways become our ways. We start to want what He wants. Time in His presence gives us clarity on what and how to pray for our life. When we do this, He will show us doors He wants to open, there are also many He will close. Not to hurt us, but He sees the full picture while we only see in part. Seek Him my friends, there awaits the answer to whatever you need. 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” ~ Luke 11:9

The Names of God: Jehovah-Mekaddishkem

Jehovah-Mekaddishkem is “The Lord Who Sanctifies” Sanctify is “set apart as or declare holy; consecrate.” The Lord’s children are set apart. We are washed in the blood of Jesus, redeemed. We are held to a higher standard, we are made holy through the blood of Jesus and called to walk accordingly. This doesn’t mean we are perfect, but we are continually walking with the Lord and flesh dies on the journey. He is Jehovah-Mekaddishkem and walking with Him will change life continuously. 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“12 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it [is] a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that [ye] may know that I [am] the LORD that doth sanctify you.” ~ Exodus 31:12-13

There is no hiding from God. He knows our heart, He catches our tears when we are sad and He hears our groaning when we are upset. One of the most difficult things to do is praise the Lord while in a storm, to praise Him while others are coming against you. BUT, there is power in that praise. Praise ushers in the Holy Spirit and is often the door for break through. Even if it starts as a whisper, praise Him in the storm and watch His light and love shower down on you! 🦅 ~ Chelle, #fiithgal

“Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.” ~ Psalm 38:9

The Names of God: El Shaddai

El Shaddai is “The All Sufficient One; The God of the Mountains; God Almighty” Our God is all-powerful. He is sufficient to meet our every need and from Him all of our blessings flow. That mountain you face is not bigger than the God of the mountains. He is God almighty and He can cause it to crumble before the enemies eyes. What every the need or problem, The All Sufficient one has the power to meet the need and conquer the problem. Give it to Him and watch His power rein victorious in your life. 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.” ~ Genesis 17:1

It’s disheartening when someone you trust betrays that trust, but as a child of God you can give it to Him to heal those wounds and trust they will not prosper from their wickedness. When you see evil people that appear to prosper, sometimes at your expense, just rest in the Lord. Wait patiently for what He has promised you. Many times He protects us by forcing us to let go of people that were hindering your progress in Him. There are times they take a promotion or something you just knew was yours. Let it go and trust in the Lord. Chances are pretty good that He has something better for you! His ways are better than ours, He knows and sees what we don’t. Rest in His presence, He’s got you! 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.” ~ Psalm 37:7
