The God Of Who?

The God Of Who?

Jacob wrestled the angel, or God, and said, “Please tell me your name.” The being did not reveal his name. God changed Jacob’s name during that wrestling match to Israel. Israel was Jacob himself. Later when he offered up a sacrifice, he called God “the God of Israel.”

By referring to God in this way, he was calling God the God of me – one who has my name in His name. God had given to Jacob the name Israel. In turn, Jacob gave the name, the God of Israel, to God. When you’re born again, you become a new person. Through this new birth, this new you is joined to God and God is joined to you. Your identity is now in Him, never apart from Him.

You need in that sense to name God. You can’t change His name, but in your new birth you can claim that He is now the God of you; the God of me. You’ll be able to say with confidence, “My Beloved is mine and I am His.” Our God is and forever will be the God of Israel, the God of me, the God of you.

My beloved is mine, and I am his; he grazes among the lilies. Song of Solomon 2:16

Say to the God of Israel that you are completely His and that He is Lord and King in your heart. Be confident that you belong to Him. Keep His name upon your heart forever.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always
