The Names of God – Jehovah Shalom

John 5:43   John 17:6

Jesus says that he manifested and declared God's name to men. God has always revealed Himself through His names. God's name reveals His nature, His character, His personality and His attributes. As we understand His name, we come closer to understanding God Himself. Jesus manifested different name of God while He was on the earth, all of which prove His goodness and desire for His people to receive the best in life.

Jehovah Shalom
Jehovah Shalom means "the Lord our peace". There are two types of peace we benefit from according to the Word. There is the peace with God and the peace of God.

“And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven." Colossians 1:20
Jesus is our peace. Through Him, we have obtained peace with God
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:” Romans 5:1

Jesus broke the wall of partition that separated us from God. Through Him, we can come boldly to the throne of grace because of the power of His blood through His death and resurrection. He restored our relationship and fellowship with God. We are now at peace and can enjoy a progressive relationship with our Father.

Because of the peace with God, we can have the peace of God.
Philippians 4:6-7

The peace of God that surpasses all understanding brings a worry-free life. When you are facing the storms of life, because we now have peace with God, Jesus will stand on our behalf and manifest the peace of God in our lives. He will provide restoration, safety, rest and security for us and our future. Remember now that God is the author of peace not confusion

1Corinthians 14:33

When the disciples felt threatened and challenged for their lives in the midst of the storm, as they called on Jesus, He stood up, rebuked the storm and commanded peace and it was so. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. No matter the storms of life that you may be facing, if you call on Him, He will manifest the peace of God in your life.

One of the translations of Shalom from the Hebrew is nothing missing and nothing broken. With Jesus, you can rest assure that He will fill the gaps and heal the brokenness that you've experienced.

So, how can we experience this peace today?
"These thing have I spoken to you, that in me ye might have peace." John 16:33
Peace comes from the words that Jesus have spoken.
Instead of trying to read different scriptures everyday, take the area of your life that needs peace and find a scripture and make it work in your life. If you have a physical storm concerning your health, then find scriptures on healing. These words are seeds, so read them out loud, believe them, receive it for you and keep confessing until they bear fruit in your life. The same goes for financial storms or any challenges.
Don't quit until you see results. Remember the key to breakthrough is consistency.
