    “For the LORD will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you His people” (1 Samuel 12:22 NKJV).

    God is jealous for his name, cares about it, and minds what people think of him. The devil knows this and tries to defame and discredit God all the time. He ascribes all major disasters to “Acts of God,” and make people believe God wants them sick and poor. Our text says for the sake of God’s great name, he will not forsake his people, and it has pleased him to make believers his people. Proverbs 18:10 says, “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.”

    The Covenant names of God in the Old Testament reveal his nature, character and heart; towards his chosen people:

    • Jehovah El Shaddai - God our Supplier
    • Jehovah-Nissi - God my Banner
    • Jehovah-Tsidkenu - God my Righteousness
    • Jehovah-Rapha - God my Healer
    • Jehovah-Jireh - God my Provider
