The Strength of His NameProverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Life is full of strain.
Sooner or later we all come to the consciousness of this fact.
The day when we have to say we cannot is a day of disaster or a day of victory, and whether it be disaster or victory depends entirely upon whether or not we believe our text
and have entered into the full meaning of its profound and comforting suggestiveness.The name of Jesus in itself is composed of the ancient name Jehovah
[and] essentially means Jehovah is salvation.
Into that name
we may run and be set on high.
Are you in conflict with foes in the valley that are against faith and against God? Let your hands be uplifted, and in that name Jesus there is a banner of Jehovah, and victory must come as you follow Him. Are you commissioned to some work from which you shrink, as did Gideon of old? In Jesus is the fulfilment of the great word Jehovah-Shalom, for He is our peace; and we may enter all service in perfect peace in Him.
And if today the thickening battle and darkening gloom overwhelm you, stay a little with the river, and look far enough and earnestly enough, and beyond all the mystery of the hour you will see the glory of Gods victory, and its chief word is this, Jehovah-Shammah, the Lord is there. G. Campbell Morgan, The Westminster Pulpit.
