The NAME

God spoke to Moses and said to him, “I AM YHWH, the LORD. I was seen by Abraham, by Isaac, and by Jacob as God SHADDAI (Almighty, God of the mountains) but by my name YHWH I was not known to them” (Exodus 6:2-3).
 
The LORD is about to do something new, something sovereign and something powerful against which the rulers of the earth are powerless. The LORD is about to act. He reveals Himself by His name, the name that displays that He has the final word. His determination will come to pass.
 
As we embark on our corporate fast for this season, let the NAME of the LORD be known to you afresh in all the implications it carries. LORD. He has the last word.
 
In this encounter God recapitulates His word to Moses that he was called and commissioned him at the burning bush. God says He has heard the cry of Israel and has recalled His covenant with the descendants of His friend Abraham who believed. Four times God declares He is about to act. He will “bring out” Israel from beneath the slavery imposed on them by the world ruler. He will do it with a “strong hand.”
 
In the gospel a father brings his oppressed son to Jesus’ disciples believing they have power to heal his son. They didn't heal him. Jesus called for the boy, rebuked the demon, and it went out of him. The boy was instantly, completely and permanently cured.
 
Then Jesus rebukes his disciples, "Because of your unbelief. For most certainly I tell you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. But this kind doesn't go out except by prayer and fasting” (Matt. 17:20-21).
 
As we pray and fast together bid your faith GROW. Reject unbelief at every level. YHWH, the LORD, is God over any mountain opposing Him. He will keep His promise. He will act with a strong hand!
 
May you hear His voice as He calls you by name and bids you rely solely on Him and be filled with His power.
