Names of God: Migdal Oz

Migdal Oz is Strong Tower. I thought this was a good name going into a new month and new week. 2020 has proved to be a difficult year for so many. This is an awesome reminder that God is Migdal Oz, our strong Tower. He is a shelter and respite from the fiery darts of the enemy. So when you grow weary you have a strong tower that will protect you like no other. It’s okay to retreat there, rest, and reload for the battles ahead. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

What a timely verse for me. I was thinking about everything I needed to do in the week ahead and was instantly overwhelmed. Then I read today’s verse. It’s not through my strength, but God’s power that my strength is renewed. I don’t know about you, but I needed that reminder today! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.” ~ Isaiah 40:29

Names of God: Lo Shanah

Lo Shanah is Unchanging. In Malachi 3:6, the Lord tells us He changes not. In a world where everything is constantly changing, I am thankful that we serve a God that never changes. He never waivers, there is 100 percent consistency. There are no updates needed or balls to drop because He never changes. You can’t outgrow Him because He is constantly teaching you. I don’t know about you, but my life needs that! Lo Shanah brings stability to His children in a world that is unstable. There is so much in peace knowing that. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Life changes so fast it is often hard to keep up with the changes. People come and go. Some are only meant to be in your life for a season and many become lessons along this journey. God gives us stability in this ever changing world and that is the Word of God. You can stand firmly on it and trust it to never change. You can use it as a road map to life and it will guide you when you become lost. It contains promises that will never be broken. How blessed we are to have been given the Word of Life by the Creator of Life. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.” ~ Isaiah 40:8

Names of God: El Deah

El Deah is The God of Knowledge. Life is hard. There are so many situations that come up that I just don’t have the answers for. It is okay because I serve a God who does! We don’t have to have it all figured it, we don’t have to know the answers to every single thing thrown our way because we serve a God who is all knowing. The Bible also has a wealth of instruction and knowledge hidden within it’s pages. The Holy Spirit will impart that wisdom and knowledge into us when we seek Him.

As I study this name tonight, I smile and say thank You Poppa! I struggled this week and He knew I needed this name at the end of it. El Deah sees what I can’t and He knows what I don’t. I’m thankful that I don’t have to have it all figured out because He goes before me. His ways are higher than mine and better than I could ever imagine. I need only to trust in Him, trust in His timing, and continue pressing into Him. My friends, what He will do for me He will do for you! He’s got us. He already knows every little and big thing we will encounter. That deserves a praise shout! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

I found myself meditating on this verse this morning. From John the Baptist preaching the baptism of repentance (Mark 1) to the future coming of of Lord. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord.” He will be coming back soon making it so important to tell everyone of His grace and mercy now. The path is narrow and straight, but filled with so much love.💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“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.” ~ Isaiah 40:3

Names of God: Entunchano

Entunchano is The God Who Intercedes. Another name that I am so thankful for. When I look back through my life I can see times that God clearly interceded on my behalf. I wonder how many times He interceded that I didn’t even know about; how many attacks from the enemy He held back; how many fleets of angels He released in my behalf? And now the Holy Spirit intercedes on our behalf when we have no words. When all I have are tears, He stands in the gap making an utterance for me and for you. Who knows where I’d be if I had been left to my own devices, but God! He interceded and turned my life around. I am so thankful for Entunchano, The God Who Intercedes. He intercedes when we don’t even know we need it. Just blessed and in awe of Him tonight. Thank You Entunchano for interceding on our behalf, thank You! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

The thing about falling when you are a child of God, your Father always lifts you back up. As I was writing this, I heard the song Raise a Hallelujah in my spirit, “I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies.” Lord, let Your light just keep shining through me for all to see. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“7 Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. 8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD [shall be] a light unto me.” ~ Micah 7:7-8

Names of God: Yotzerenu

Yotzerenu is Potter. We are clay in our Potter’s hands as He molds and shapes us. It is not an easy process, but a process that brings us closer to Him when we yield to it. I’ve had a really difficult week. I feel kind of like a lump of clay being pressed and pulled. As I wrote this, I found myself asking Yotzerenu, what are you trying to form within me from it? It brings me back to the lyrics from Lord You Are The Potter,Lord, You are the Potter and I am the clay. Mold me and make me, have Thine own way.” Whatever it is Lord, I’m clay in Your hands. Mold and make me, have Thine own way! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Praise the Lord that as children of God we don’t have to be fearful. The storms can rage all around us and we are safe in our Father hands. I truly believe we are living in the end days and allowing His light to shine through us has never been more important. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“4 Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come [with] vengeance, [even] God [with] a recompence; he will come and save you. 5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.” ~ Isaiah 35:4-5
