We sang Blessed Be the Name by Tree63,  Everything Is Mine In You by Christy Nockels, and I Stand Amazed (How Marvelous) by Chris Tomlin in praise and worship today.

Kathy reviewed the principles of knowing God as Abba Father, understanding the difference between a slave mentality and knowing we are beloved children of God.

Today she explored the truth of how God lovingly re-parents us through the Family of God, the reality of the consequences of sin in past generations, the command to honor His family rather than being bound to bitterness, recognizing the sin – wounding – sin cycle, and looking for the deposit of His image in our family and all people.

Our apologies for the inconvenience but the recording did not work today.  Please refer to the worksheet for great Scripture and principles on this topic of getting freedom from generational issues.  Feel free to contact one of our leaders if you have any questions.

GOD’S NAMES: A PORTRAIT OF HIS HEART

 

 

God uses His names to give us a more accurate picture of who He is. My favorite name of God is Faithful and True! I’ll never forget my first glimpse of Him on that white horse in Revelation 19:11-16 MSG:

 

Then I saw Heaven open wide—and oh! a white horse and its Rider. The Rider, named Faithful and True, judges and makes war in pure righteousness. His eyes are a blaze of fire, on his head many crowns. He has a Name inscribed that’s known only to himself. He is dressed in a robe soaked with blood, and he is addressed as “Word of God.” The armies of Heaven, mounted on white horses and dressed in dazzling white linen, follow him. A sharp sword comes out of his mouth so he can subdue the nations, then rule them with a rod of iron. He treads the winepress of the raging wrath of God, the Sovereign-Strong. On his robe and thigh is written, King of kings, Lord of lords.

 

How could I not be encouraged after reading this?

 

He is Faithful. Even when I’ve felt rejected or betrayed by others, He’s remained loyal in His love. I can trust Him to be who He said He’d be for me: Father, Brother, Lover, and Friend. When I fear or fail to believe, I can still count on Him. He says, “Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.” (Isaiah 41:13 NLT)

 

He is True. His tongue is a sword; His words instruct, correct, comfort, and reassure me. In times of intense spiritual battle, I’m learning to turn my focus toward Jesus sitting astride that white horse. He is able to restore my peace. He is Faithful to fight for me, contending with the powers of darkness that seek to steal, kill, and destroy. He will be True until the end when love prevails and the enemy is crushed beneath His feet.

 

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” (Proverbs 18:10) Yes, I’m definitely stronger and feel much safer after pondering this aspect of God’s heart! I can’t wait to plunge deeply into more of God’s Names in this new series. I hope you will join me!

 

I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. 

Psalm 91:14
