About Meeting Adonai Series
God moves radically toward us and deals mightily with us when we see and receive Him as Adonai. Meeting Adonai, Owner and Master, changes everything.
Proverbs 18:10 NASB
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is safe (high above evil and strong).
Micah 4:5 NASB
Though all the peoples walk each in the name of his god, As for us, we will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever.
Every person dwells in the identity of what he trusts, and lives [walks] inside its name. Whether we know the Lord’s names or not, we walk in our concept of His identity. Knowing His names enables us to be empowered by His strength and hidden in His character.
Gideon lived from the strong tower of God’s name as it had been revealed by God Himself, and he was high above the evil around him as master over it. Gideon’s “identity” was irrelevant. It was God’s name that became Gideon’s very identity.
