“God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM.
This is what you are to say to the Israelites:
I AM has sent me to you.’”
(Exodus 3:14 NIV)
I have pondered the name of God in order to achieve a deeper, stronger relationship with my Creator.
Jonathan Cahn’s writings seek to explain spiritual obscurities. In “The Book of Mysteries” he claims we say God’s name all the time. YHVH (Yahweh) translates into “I Am.” When we speak of ourselves, we say God’s name first, because our existence comes from His existence. “I am Macy” translates to “God Macy.”
God is the Source of all life. Jonathan Cahn reminds us, “Therefore, you must put Him first and then let everything flow from Him.” We not only live for Him, but also after Him. Nothing we can ever think, say, or do will separate us from our Creator, or His perfect love to us through Christ, His Son.
“Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
(Romans 8:39 NIV)
I once told a friend that I picture God, in my finite mind, standing in the middle of a circle of events. As these events (my representation of human time limits) encircle Him, He is touching every one of them at the same time. God is always in the present, not “was” or “will be.”
If I would always see God in this way, as my only Source of Life, I believe my petty little problems would fade and disappear. My life-changing troubles would have new, profound meanings. We are finite, but thankfully, our Heavenly Father is not.
I will consciously speak God’s power into my life every time I say His name. I hope you will, too!
