I have find myself in a season where I am fighting an enemy named cancer. It is a daunting thing to hear that spoken over you by doctors but I keeping going back to a different name …Adonai. Adonai means Lord over all.
We see this in so many passages of Scripture. We see it when Abraham was told he and Sarah would have a son and that their descendants would outnumber the grains of sand and the stars in the sky. Physically there was no way for this to happen but … Adonai!
We see it again when Jesus’ beloved friend Lazarus had died. His final breath was gone, he was laid in a tomb for four days there was no hope, but … Adonai!
We see it most importantly when Jesus was raised from the dead. His body was broken and beaten so badly they said he didn’t even look human but… Adonai!
As believers we need to stop giving power to worldly circumstances and say but… Adonai!
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.”
Psalms 121:1-8 NKJV
God doesn’t tell us that only good things will come our way if we believe in Him. He doesn’t say bad things will only happen to other people. He does however say that He has overcome all things and will be with us.
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.””
John 16:33 NKJV
When we are faced with trials and tribulations let’s lift up our eyes and instead of giving into them or letting fear and worry dictate our response let us say but …Adonai!
