Personalizing God's Word and His Names
Chosen by God!
When we make God's Word personal it becomes easier to understand and apply to our lives. It can be as simple as inserting your name in the Scripture, as if God were talking directly to you, and only you. Or you can take a passage of Scripture and personalize it. Today, I've personalized Psalm 23 using the Names of God. I've shared this before and chose to share it again as another example of making the Word personal to you.
I encourage you to read Psalm 23 as written, then read what I wrote. This is the way the Psalm and the Names of God spoke to me. I also encourage and challenge you to choose a Scripture and do the same thing. I'd love to see what you have written.
Personalized 23rd Psalm Using the Names of God:
The Lord, Adonai, is my Teacher, my personal Instructor;
He provides me with knowledge teaching me how to live according to His Word.
He gives me the mind of Christ and mental acuity to learn about Him and understand His ways.
Jehovah Shalom wraps me in peace and caresses me with love as I walk in His presence;
Jehovah Rohi gives me direction and reveals the right path for my life.
He guides me to wisdom, understanding, perception, and good judgment so I can bring glory to His Name.
Jehovah M’Kaddesh sanctifies me, making me holy, because He is holy.
As I walk in a world that no longer reverences God and worships the temporary, with little thought to the Eternal, I have no fear;
Jehovah Shammah gives me courage and provides comfort, making Your home in me.
Your presence is always with me.
Your Word is my shield and my security.
El Shaddai, You provide everything I require. I have no lack.
My eyes are continually on You, Jehovah Jireh, my true provider.
My faith and my trust are in You, Jehovah.
You anoint my mind and fill my journal with precious insights.
Surely greater wisdom and godly knowledge will follow me and flow through me every day of my life.
I will spend time in the presence of my Teacher forever!
He leads me (vs 1-2)…He restores me (v3)…He guides me (vs3)…He is with me (vs4)…He comforts me (vs4)…He fills me (vs5)…He blesses me (vs6)
He satisfies me!
