Yahweh, Day 73
Day 73, Yahweh … Worthy an Altar
1Kings 18:31-32 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
“Elijah took 12 stones-according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, ‘Israel will be your name‘- and he built an altar with the stones in the name of Yahweh.”
The 12 stones representing the tribal names ... built/joined/placed together in God's name. We tend to focus on the names on the stones instead of the Name of the altar.
Intercessory Prayer: Oh Yahweh! We love to display our names and our distinctions. Forgive us for the great neglect we have given to Your Name … and Your fame … and Your glory. In Jesus Name. Amen.
