Even the wind and waves obey Him!

“The waves and wind still know his name.”

This line from a song has been on my mind and in my heart all week and while I was humming it to myself, the Lord reminded me of the many names of God we see in Scripture.

El Shaddai - Lord God Almighty

Jehovah Raffa - The Lord Who Heals

Jehovah Shammah - The Lord is There

Jehovah Mekoddishkem- The Lord Who Sanctifies You

Jehovah Jireh - The Lord will Provide

Jehovah Shalom - The Lord is Peace

Jehovah Raah - The Lord is My Shepherd

Adonai - Master

Jehovah Saboath - The Lord of Hosts

When Jesus was here on earth, he spoke to turbulent wind and waves and they obeyed him and became calm. (Matt. 8:23-27)

When we find ourselves sinking under the waves and wind of trials, sickness, depression, anxiety, addictions, relational difficulties… etc., the Holy Spirit wants to remind us that these waves and wind still know his name -- and still obey him.

We need to be encouraged and reminded that God’s Name has power: He’s the Creator and King of the universe, the Ultimate Sovereign, Redeemer, Rescuer.  He's a personal God-Immanuel: God with us. The One who speaks directly into the circumstances and the storms of our lives.

When we worship - we’re declaring this truth to our souls - as a reminder - that the whole world - and our circumstances- are under his command.
