The Names of God Part 17 - Jehovah-Or

The LORD of Light. Uncertainty has become a familiar face on the landscapes of our daily lives and in our world at large.

God’s Word tells us that in Our Father God, The LORD of light, there is no shadow, no variableness, no uncertainty as to His love and compassion.

Steep yourself today in the certainty of His love and mercy, His compassion and kindness. As you do He will bring light to your pathway. Please read Psalm 89:15; Psalm 104:2; 1 Timothy 6:16

  • Resplendent with light, Majestic, Perfect Light in whom is no darkness, The LORD who reigns. Ps 76:4, 1 John 1:5, Ps 97:1; 99:1Ps 89:15; Ps 104:2; 1 Tim 6:16.
  • The Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning, The Giver of every good and perfect gift .  James1:17
  • Great in Name, Perfect in Beauty, Great and Marvelous, Gracious and Merciful. 1 Sm 12:22; Ps 50:2; Rv 15:3; Ne 9:31
  • Holy and Glorious, Full of Compassion, Loving kindness, Goodness and Mercy forever. Is 63:15; Ps 116:5; Ps 63:3; Ps 100:5

prayer & reflection

Father God,

I stand amazed this morning at the wonder of You! You are the LORD who reigns! You are the Father of lights. It is You alone who can bring light onto my pathway and dispel the shadows of doubt and fear. Thank you that with You there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. You can be fully counted on; fully trusted. You are the Giver of every good and perfect gift! Fill my heart with thanksgiving and with firm assurance in Your steadfastness toward me.

Your Name is great! It trumps every other name in Heaven or on Earth. You are perfect in beauty. Help me to allow Your beauty to flow through me today. You are great and marvelous. Help me to remember Your greatness through the question marks of my day. Thank you that you are gracious and merciful when I don’t deserve it.

Lord, may my heart overflow today with the certainty of You. May all that You are: your holiness, compassion, loving kindness, goodness and mercy flow to me today. May I be a vessel today fit for Your use so that these wonderful certainties flow through me to those around me. Fill my heart with the knowledge of You today and help me pass it on.

Thank you for the wonderful truth that You are the Lord of light and that the shadows casting their darkness on my path are not from You. May the certainty of who You are today flood my heart and mind with light and life.

In the strong name of Jesus I pray, amen.
