Yahweh, Day 68
Day 68, Yahweh … Calling On The Name
1Kings 18:24 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
"Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of Yahweh. The God who answers with fire, He is God." All the people answered, "That [sounds] good."
The favorite word for most people to hear spoken is their own name, and God actually enjoys hearing His Name spoken as well. Yahweh likes His Name.
He likes to hear His Name spoken by His redeemed children ... speaking The Name is very much like making a confession to His superlative person-hood ... confessing His Eternal Essence ... above all and over all.
Intercessory Prayer: Oh Father, may we not be ashamed to proclaim Your Name with affection and submission … Yahweh. In Jesus Name. Amen.
