Today Pastor Brian will continue our series on the Names of God with a sermon on this week’s name, Jehovah Nissi, which means the Lord is My Banner.
The sermon discusses a time when the Israeli people are journeying through the wilderness and encounter the Amalekites. God tells them to face them down because He is going to provide a victory. Sometimes in our own lives it’s hard to trust that God will provide. We get tired, despondent and fall into despair but God does not abandon us. Sometimes He watches us labor and struggle so that we build character and trust in Him. He becomes our rallying point, our banner, to keep us going.
