Names of God: Yahweh Tsuri
We often forget. We see throughout history the Israelites and the church forgetting. We need to be reminded often of who God is in Scripture, church history and in our lives and churches.
The names of God are important because these names are not just what God does, it is who He is. I hope this will encourage you as you are reminded of how good, great, and awesome our God is.
Yahweh is the Hebrew Name for God. It is "I AM". It is used over 6000 times in the Old Testament. It was such a holy name that the Jews would not even say it.
Tsuri means rock.
To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, (Psalm 28:1)
What it reminds me? Our God is solid as a rock. Rocks are used as foundations so we rest in God as our foundation. Rocks are strong so we can trust God is strong for us. Rocks are firm so when life is out of control, we can trust God to be a firm foundation for us.
