Yahweh, Day 58


Day 58, Yahweh ... Shalom ... "Completed"

Judges 6:24 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
“So Gideon built an altar to the Lord there and called it Yahweh Shalom.”
For 7 years Israel had been under the strong arm of Midian ... as a judgment from God.  Now it was time for deliverance from the punitive sentence that God had given to the nation.

One part of the revealed name, Yahweh Shalom, is of course now in the meaning of "Shalom."  The basic meaning  ... complete.

In our text here ... by revealing the name, Yahweh Shalom, God is announcing that Israel's punishment is "complete"... and vows to that completion by the force of The Name ... Yahweh ... now Yahweh Shalom.  In other words ... by all the power and authority of The Name ... Yahweh declares that the dark night is over ... the chastening is complete ... Yahweh Shalom.

God here swears to it by His name.

Intercessory Prayer:  Oh Father!  Thank You that when You say, “enough” that it is enough … it is finished!  In Jesus Name.  Amen.
