His Name Is The Lord – Jeremiah 16:21

“Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know, My hand and My might; And they shall know that My name is the LORD.”

YAHUAH:Jehovah YHUH Modern Hebrew

Trouble does not overtake us, we have to let it do so by our disobedience. Obedience to God brings favor and blessing and likewise the bible declares disobedience brings curses. By definition a curse is something that we do to ourself – it is our agreement with the Lord to subtract from our life. The Lord declared that Israel would know his name because he would raise up oppressors to torment them for their disobedience. They would know his name is Jehovah because they ignored the warnings spoken by the prophets. Perhaps before we blame God for our present trials, we ought to consider how our disobedience has led us astray. God only cares that we know who he is; there is no need to have to figure that out through trials. Accept your responsibility and pray forgiveness from your transgressions.
