Jehovah Rohi - the Lord is my Shepherd Of all the names of God - The Lord is my Shepherd is probably the most well known.

God leads, feeds and protects us - spiritually, emotionally and practically - His love touching every aspect of our lives. In this talk we see how nothing is too little for God to be interested in, and nothing is big for Him to handle.

We understand that we all have questions & experiences in this area but we cannot allow that to redefine who God has revealed Himself to be. Our collective experience does not define who God is.
Take your past disappointments & questions and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal Christ the Healer in the midst of them. He told us that he was Rohpe - and He has not changed

16.08.15 GOD makes you holy
In the last of the summer teaching series, Higher, which focuses on the names God is known by, Wayne looks at Jehovah M'Kaddesh (The Lord Makes You Holy). Understanding that God has made you holy as a Christian rather than you through your own efforts is key in really getting to grips with what the grace of God is all about. It liberates you to freely serve God without the baggage of sin, guilt & shame and selflessly serve others knowing that God will meet all of your needs. Amazing grace!
