This is the history of the heavens and of the earth when they were created. In the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens Genesis 2:4
In this text, Lord comes from the Hebrew word, Yehovah (yeh-ho-vah’) or Yahweh and it means; The Self-Existent. It is one of the most prominent names for God mentioned in the old testament. It appears 6,823 times!
What is the significance of this Name?
Well, think about it…God just Is. He does not “need” anything or anyone to keep Him going. He is SELF-EXISTENT. He just IS! That says a TON to me!
Knowing that He doesn’t “need” me or anyone…yet He shows us each such profound love and mercy…the kind of love and mercy we do not even begin to bestow upon others…not even our children.
He loves us just because we are HIS. He could wipe us all out tomorrow if He so desired. However, that is not in His nature. He is filled with such warmth and compassion for us, even with all of our frailties…
He just ADORES us…simply and profoundly!
So, the next time you are feeling down or depressed, remember, LORD GOD, The Self-Existent…TRULY and COMPLETELY LOVES YOU!
Daddy God, You are all I ever need. You are Lord God, The Self-Existent. I love You, Daddy. Thank You for loving me even though You do not have to love me. Thank You that I matter greatly to You. Thank You for calling me Your very Own. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
In His Love and Service,
