All praise and honor to God our Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ! So glad you joined us for Morning Devotion here on The Everyday Christian with host Mary Washington.
Jehovah-Raah (yeh-ho-vaw' raw-aw') (The Lord My Shepherd)
Jehovah is translated as "The Existing One" or "Lord." The chief meaning of Jehovah is derived from the Hebrew word Havah meaning "to be" or "to exist." It also suggests "to become" or specifically "to become known"…this denotes a God who reveals Himself unceasingly. Rô'eh from which Raah derived, means "shepherd" in Hebrew. A shepherd is one who feeds or leads his flock to pasture (Eze 34:11-15). An extend translation of this word, rea', is "friend" or "companion." This indicates the intimacy God desires between Himself and His people. When the two words are combined…Jehovah Raah…it can be translated as "The Lord my Friend." Further references of the name Jehovah-Raah in the Old Testament: Gen 48:15; Gen 49:24; Psa 23:1; Psa 80:1
