Metamorphosis – Becoming More Because He Is More Than Enough!

Posted: September 4, 2013 in Metamorphosis, Stumbling...

Sometime last week I shared about getting a song that consumed my listing time. To this day it still consumes me. It plays from the time I get up till I call it quits for the evening. It plays in the foreground when no one is around and then plays in the background when there is. Ann Marie is being held hostage to it as we are most often together. The song is called More Then Enough and it’s sung by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. The theme of the song is about three of the seven redemptive names of God which all start with Jehovah.

While it may not seem like it these three specific names of God all coincide with my metamorphosis and on a broader scale my repositioning an emerging journey with God.

In the Old Testament, God reveals Himself to man in seven names.  Each of these names begins with Jehovah.  To the Jews, the name Jehovah was so holy that it was never said by anyone except the High Priest in the Holy Place on the Day of Atonement.  Seven is the number for perfection and God is a perfect God.  God is called other names but only seven names are His redemptive names.  When God commands that we “preach the Gospel to every creature,” He means that we tell the good news of His redemption.  His seven redemptive names reveal what our redemption includes.

Today let me introduce all seven names. I will high-light the three that I am focused on at this time and that’s not because the others are not just as important. It’s simply a matter of this season i’m in.

Jehovah-Shammah:   “The Lord is present.” 

Jehovah-Jireh:  “The Lord will provide.”

Jehovah-Rapha:  “The Lord that heals thee”

The song covers these three and the chorus says the “He Is More Then Enough.”

MORE: in greater quantity, amount, measure, degree, or number, something of greater importance.

Jehovah-Shammah:   “The Lord is present.” “The Lord is more than present!”

Jehovah-Jireh:  “The Lord will provide.” “The Lord will more than provide!”

Jehovah-Rapha:  “The Lord that heals thee” The Lord that more than heals thee!”

More on those tomorrow.

Jehovah-Shalom:  “The Lord is our Peace.”

Jehovah-Ra-ah:  “The Lord is my Shepherd.”

Jehovah-Nissi:  “The Lord our Banner”

Jehovah-Tsidkenu:  “The Lord our Righteousness”

It is under these seven names that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. With God revealing Himself to me through these names, i have the right to peace, provisions, righteousness, His presence and even healing.  It wouldn’t be right to change I am the Lord that heals thee, to I was the Lord that heals thee.  God wants all of these names to be sent to every creature.

Psalm 107:20 (NKJV) “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”
