Weekly Watch Focus: The God of Grace
FRIDAY, August 5, 2011. Let us turn our faces toward the God of all grace. Even though we deserve judgment, through the complete work of Christ at Calvary and His shed blood, let us plead for mercy on behalf of ourselves, our families, our churches and nation. Over the next seven days let us especially welcome Him as:
Jehovah Rapha—The Lord our Healer (Ex. 15:26)
Jehovah Jireh—The Lord our Provider (Gen. 22:8)
Jehovah Nissi—The Lord our Banner of victory, love and protection (Ex. 17:15)
Jehovah Shalom—The Lord our Perfect Peace (Judges 6:24)
Jehovah Tsidikenu—The Lord our Righteousness and Faithful Guide (Jer. 23:6)
Jehovah Shammah—The Lord is There – with us everywhere (Ez. 48:35)
Jehovah Sabaoth—The Lord of Hosts, Captain of Armies, our Protector (Josh 5:14, Ps 24:10)
