Psalm 83:18 “That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.”
When you read that, what does it mean to you?
None of us are too familiar with calling God as “Jehovah” or “Yahweh”. We know Him as Lord, Father, Jesus…but “Jehovah”…not too much.
There is much meaning behind this name. God specifically tells us that there is no other God before Him. He sits high above all and will not be changed or compromised in any way. It simply means He is eternal and self-Existent. God didn’t have to create man, He chose to. He wanted to have a real, life-changing relationship with each one of us. Throughout history, you see many Gods being idolized. From the very beginning, God told us He is a jealous God and we are to bow to no other God but Him.
Isaiah 45:…20“Gather yourselves and come; Draw near together, you fugitives of the nations; They have no knowledge, Who carry about their wooden idol And pray to a god who cannot save. 21“Declare and set forth your case; Indeed, let them consult together. Who has announced this from of old? Who has long since declared it? Is it not I, the LORD? And there is no other God besides Me, A righteous God and a Savior; There is none except Me. 22“Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other.…
God is unchangeable…He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Isaiah 12: 1Then you will say on that day, “I will give thanks to You, O LORD; For although You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, And You comfort me. 2“Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.” 3Therefore you will joyously draw water From the springs of salvation.…
God wants to be everything to you. Just as in Job 29:4, God wants to be your friend who watches over you, protects you, strengthens you, comforts you and always be there for you. There is no other God that could ever save you. He is your salvation.
So as you go about your week, give thanks to our Lord Jehovah and remember that He is always there for you. Talk with Him about everything going on in your life and listen to His still small voice for He will guide your path to the greatness He wants for you. Praise His Name above all others for He will give you the desires of your heart and much success is in your very near future.
