Day 4

 

Scripture

Jeremiah 14:9 TLV

Why are You like a man overcome, like a champion who cannot save? Yet you, Adonai, are in our midst, and we are called by Your Name. Do not forsake us!

Heart Thoughts

It is true that to give a name is to exercise control. The powerful give names to the weak. It is the father who names the child, the conqueror who names the captured city, and God who names his creatures.

To be called by the Name of God is to allow God to exercise control over your life. Recently, we had to renew our youngest daughter’s Passport. After going through a lengthy paperwork process the clerk had me and my wife raise our hands and swear this child was in fact our child that bore our last name. Then our child had to take the same solemn oath. We were acknowledging that we exercised control over her as parents and she that we were her guardians.

If you are called by God’s Name He swears to be your guardian. He assumes full responsibility for your life. He lifts up His right hand and promises to be responsible for you and for all of your needs. The question is, “Can you raise your hand say that He is your guardian? Can you say today that you have voluntarily given Him right to exercise control over you life?” If so, then His Name is on you and the blessing of His guardianship will be upon you.

Brachah

May the Lord God of Israel’s hope place His Name over your heart today. May you feel his protective guardianship over your life. May you without hesitation raise your hand and acknowledge your heavenly Father who has put His Name upon you.
