You are the God who is holy

Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on February 7, 2010

“…You are the God who is holy…

One of the names the Lord calls Himself is Jehovah M'kaddesh. The literal translation is ‘I Am the Lord Who Sets You Apart’…or I am your Holiness…your sanctification. Something that is holy is something that is set apart for a high purpose. Something to be kept pure. When we think of God we usually think ‘holy’…but do we really understand what that means? We know that God is perfect and pure. All that He is comes from the perfection of His holiness. That means His love is perfect. His forgiveness is perfect and complete. His redemption is perfect and complete. His power and strength – all that He is – is perfect. And because He is perfect, His ways, His thoughts, and His desire for us are all perfect. Do you know what that means? He only desires our best! We can TRUST Him completely.

What are some of the misconceptions of God’s perfect holiness that keep me from trusting Him completely? Take time to repent of those wrong thoughts and put on the right thinking that brings victory today.

Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying,
Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it [is] a sign between me and you throughout your generations;
that [ye] may know that I [am] the LORD [Jehovah M'kaddesh] that doth sanctify you.
Exodus 31:13 KJV
