In this season, SP Daniel Foo continues to expound on the names of God. We further recognise God as Jehovah Shalom, the LORD is my peace. He who leads us beside quiet waters (Psalm 23:2).
His name as Jehovah Shalom was first revealed in the Book of Judges (Judges 6:6, 11 and 13) to Gideon who saw himself as insignificant and the least in his own family, incapable to save Israel from the oppression of the Midianites. Despite the doubts that Gideon had, the Lord said to Gideon, “Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die”. And Gideon built an altar there to the Lord and called it ‘The Lord is Peace (Judges 6:23-24).
