Glorify His Name

El Shaddai, El Shaddai, (God Almighty, God Almighty)
El- Elyon Na Adonai, 
(God Most High O Lord)
age to age you’re still the same,
by the power of the name.

El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka Na Adonai, 
(We Will Love You O Lord)
we will praise and lift you high,
El Shaddai.

Through your love and through the ram,
you saved the son of Abraham,
through the power of your hand
you turned the sea into dry land.
To the outcast on her knees
you were the God who really sees,
and by your might you set your children free.

Through the years you made it clear
that the time of Christ was near,
though the people couldn’t see
what Messiah ought to be.
Though your Word contained the plan,
they just could not understand,
your most awesome work was done in the frailty of your Son.

I woke up this morning to the gentle whisper of the name “El Shaddai”. 

 

El-Shaddai means God Almighty. El points to the power of God Himself. Shaddai signifies one who completely nourishes, fully supplies, and wholly satisfies. All our needs are met in “El Shaddai”.  

***********************************

When I felt impressed to begin writing a newsletter,  the theme behind each one would be to glorify His Name.   That phrase “Glorify His Name” can be cliche, and sadly, we use it so often,  we forget what it means to “Glorify His Name.” 

 

Strong’s Concordance shows this:

 

Kâbad kâbêd

 

kaw-bad, kaw-bade’

A primitive root; to be heavy, that is, in a bad sense (burdensomeseveredull) or in a good sense (numerousrichhonorable); causatively tomake weighty (in the same two senses): – abounding with, more grievously afflict, boast, be chargeable, X be dim, glorify, be (make) glorious (things), glory, (very) great, be grievous, harden, be (make) heavy, be heavier, lay heavily, (bring to, come to, do, get, be had in) honour (self), (be) honourable (man), lade, X more be laid, make self many, nobles, prevail, promote (to honour), be rich, be (go) sore, stop.

 

To glorify is to cause exaltation to happen.  To make known, to boast in, to lift high.

 

My soul will boast in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice. 

 Glorify (Kabad) the LORD with me;
let us exalt his name together.
   (Psalm 34:2,3) 

 

 His name.

 

Worthy of all glory and magnification and exaltation.

Do you want to know if there are idols in your heart?

Then learn each of His names. 

 

I learned this week that I had placed trust and confidence in a system of things I’d always thought were under His feet.

Until I heard the gentle whisper of His name spoken in my ear this morning.

 

“El Shaddai”.  

YOUR NAME

 

 

Almighty God

All Sufficient One

You are there

Shamah

You are Peace

Shalom

You are everything

That I will ever need

Shaddai

Tested in this always

My confession of

Knowing You

Do I know You?

I say I do

You test it

Through and through

Until I realize

I don’t know You

As I often say I do

But it’s okay

You have looked upon

The lowly state of

Your handmaiden

And find favor still

 

All Merciful God

All Loving Father

All Righteous One

Slow to anger

Quick to shoulder

My burdens

Even after You had

cried

“It is Done”

The battle had been won

And yet You still

Make Intercession for me

That I would know

Your name more

Completely

 

Glorious King

Ruler of Nations

To make Your name known

Among all Generations

Is our charge

To Glorify Your name

In all the earth

To proclaim Your wonder

And Your matchless worth

You alone are Lord

 

To know Your name

Is to know You

To know Your name

Is to know the depth

Of Your love

To know Your name

Is to know Your promises

Are true

And manifested as our

Eyes focus above

 

Way above the earth

 

Oh God  of my sight

Help keep my eyes

Focused on Yours

Night and Day

And Night
