Finding Refuge in the name of the Lord, Pt 3, Apr 13, 2008

When I need a refuge, I run to God
– Prov. 18:10 “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”
– Like a computer, we get viruses and fragmented and we run to God to stay clean and defragmented

4. Yahweh (YHWH) – Lord, Jehova – promised name of God
  – first used Gen. 2:4
  – Adonai is a common substitute for YHWH

5. Jehovah Nissi – the Lord my banner
  – first used in Exodus 17:15
  – God wants to be known, gives us hope and a focal point
  – when I run to God, God is in me, and I can help others run to God and raise His banner

6. Jehovah Raah – the Lord is my shepherd
  – Ps. 23
  – feeds and leads His people to pasture
  – also: the Lord my friend
