You are Jehovah the true God, who chose Abram…, and you proceeded to carry out your words, because you are righteous. This is taken from Nehemiah 9:7, 8. God promised Abraham that his seed would inherit the land of Canaan. Humans often forget what they promise; not so Jehovah. The name Jehovah means “He Causes to Become,” signifying that God, through progressive action, causes his promises to come true. (Basically, he becomes what ever he needs to become to make his promise come true or he goes into action to fulfill his promises.) This is beautifully demonstrated in God’s dealings with the descendants of Abraham when they were slaves to the Egyptians. At the time, it seemed impossible that the entire nation could be set free and settled in the Promised Land. However, by a series of progressive actions, God caused his promise to come true, thereby proving himself worthy of the unique and illustrious name Jehovah. May we too imitate our righteous God by always striving to be true to our word. Matthew 5:37 tells us: “Just let your word ‘Yes’ mean yes, your ‘No,’ no, for what goes beyond these is from the wicked one.”
