Scriptures I live by pt 3 – no way will I be intimidated!

Exodus 17:15 -16 ‘Moses built an altar and called it The Lord is my Banner. He said, “For hands were lifted up to the throne of the Lord. The Lord will be at war against the Amalekites from generation to generation’.

I love, love, love this scripture because this is where my name is from – The Lord is my banner is the hebrew to English translation of ‘Jehovah Nissi’. When I wake up and feeling rubbish and a task ahead of me seems way too big I remember that my name stems from victory.

To understand this you need to have an understanding of the story, and it goes like this (verrrrry short summary): the Amalekites were enemies of God’s people (the Israelites) and in the segment above through working together and much prayer they were defeated by the Israelites. The moral of the story is that with God on your side you have the victory no matter how big the enemy/ task/ vision. Jehovah Nissi is one of the many names of God and it describes God’s covering over his people; He is the banner of victory in every war; He operates in Power on your behalf. When I remember and fully grasp the significance of this it is impossible for me to be intimidated by any task.
