Jesus promised us He would never leave us (Matt. 28:19-20).  That means He is present with you now.  Is your heart prepared to hear from Him?  Take a moment to prepare your heart to hear from Him then read the passage below. 


“Then the Lord came down in a cloud and stood there with him; and he called out his own name, Yahweh…This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation.” — Exodus 34:5, 3:15


In ancient writings like the Bible, a name was way more than a label you used to make a dinner reservation or sign up for a spin class or file your taxes with the IRS.  Your name was a one word autobiography.  So, what does God’s name tell us about Him? A LOT! 


Yahweh is translated, “I am” meaning, Yahweh IS existence.  One way to translate this Hebrew phrase is “whatever I am, I will be.”  Meaning, whatever God is like, He’s that way consistently. 

He’s unshifting. He’s stable, 24/7.  He’s true to His character.  This is a God you can rely on.


 What do you sense your Heavenly Father speaking to you?  

How is He calling you to respond?
