Dear <<First Name>>,


I saw a sign today that said "Trust Yahweh."

Yahweh (in Spanish, "Jehová) is a name.  It's God's name (in Hebrew) that He told Moses at the burning bush.  In English, we translate this as "The LORD;" in Spanish, as "El Señor."

But in English and Spanish we use the words "lord" and "Señor" for other people, not just God.  Technically, they're not just names.  But "Yahweh," that's a personal name.  That's what God told Moses to call Him.

Why do I emphasize this?  Because the One we called to trust is a Person!  A Person with a name.  He is not an impersonal entity, an unknowable supreme being.  He is a personal Person with a name, just like we have names.

And with names, we associate histories.  Histories of things done by the person bearing that name.  So, when I see a sign telling me to "Trust Yahweh," my mind recalls what Yahweh has done in history to prove Himself worth being trusted.  He rescued His people from slavery.  He led them through the wilderness.  He defeated their enemies.  He gave them a land to call home.  He brought them back from exile.  He came from heaven to earth and took on a human name - Jesus.  He died and came back to life.  He ascended into heaven and was given the name that is above all names - Yahweh.  And he said that all who call on His name shall be saved.

Yahweh.  Jehová.  The Lord.  El Señor.  This is the name of the One whom we can trust.  He has proven it time and again.

Let us call upon His name.

Let us trust Yahweh!
