The Surprising Joy of Exploring God's HeartGod’s Name: Spirit of the Lord God

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,

because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor;

he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives,

and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.

Isaiah 61:1 (ESV)

Steps on Your Journey to Know God More Intimately:

  • Jesus quoted this verse about Himself in Luke 4:17-19.
  • Spirit of the Lord God is a compound name in Hebrew. ruah means spirit, breath or wind. Adonai means lord, master and controller. Yehwih is a variation of Yahweh. It is only used after Adonai, but the Jews pronounce it Elohim so they don’t say the same word twice in a row.
  • Meditate on this name. Ask the Lord to reveal more of Himself to you through it.
  • This week, as we celebrate the freedom we have in the United States as a nation, we want to look at the freedom that God brings us. As this verse says, Jesus came to bring us freedom.
  • In what ways do you need the Lord to bring you freedom?
  • Ask Him to show you any ways you are held captive—it could be in your thoughts, your feelings, relationships, people you need to forgive, etc. The Lord wants you to have complete freedom. Thank Him that He came to bring you freedom.
  • The Spirit is also on us, sending us to bind the brokenhearted and proclaim freedom for captives. How can you do that in your sphere of influence? One way I do it is through the Sozo ministry that I mentioned yesterday.

A Prayer for You:

Spirit of the Lord God, I worship You today. Thank You that You came upon Jesus and anointed Him to do all the things in this verse. And thank You Holy Spirit that I can claim this verse for myself, because I know You have anointed me to do Your work. Teach me more about Yourself and this name.
