Yahweh Mephalti – The Lord is my Deliverer

Dec 21, 2023 | LISTEN, READ, Soundcloud Prayers

You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. (Psalm 32:7)

Yahweh Mephalti! Now that is one of the names of God with which most of us may be less familiar, but it denotes an attribute that is central to Who He is and what He does: the One who delivers us. And how very much in need of deliverance the world is in these days when, whichever way we turn our gaze, we see violent and extremist influences and forces at work, and people in great need of help and rescue – and above all of knowing the saving power of the Lord Jesus.

From one end to the other, the Scriptures reveal the precious truth that our God is One who rescues. Deliverance is bound into the very name and saving ministry of Yeshua, the Lord Jesus Christ. He has redeemed us from the very real peril of eternal death, as well as from the many external challenges and internal bondages and blockages that we all face in the course of our pilgrimage.

It is a great joy to release this new and uplifting presentation of prayers and reflections around this significant theme – which I recorded with Elizabeth Hume (from our church) with the help, as always, of our wonderful sound engineer. These are truly ‘Songs of Deliverance,’ proclaiming the power of the One who has raised up so many men and women of faith throughout the course of human history, and who has enabled us to revel in Him even as He reveals more of His ways.

May these simple meditations play their part in making us all the more eager to call out to Him both on our own account, and on behalf of those who have no voice. Indeed, may they make us all the more willing for Him to thrust us out as those who will be counted among the multitude of those who have made their home in Christ, and who are used to bring deliverance and rescue to others in His name.

For the same strong hand and powerful arm with which Yahweh Mephalti Lord brought His people first out of Egypt and later back from Babylon, is the same lifegiving power that He used to raise His Son from the dead, and which is at work in us who believe. (Deut. 7:19; John 5:26; Eph. 1:19-20) Let’s add our voice to the great chorus and declaration of His power that is going out into the world and up into the heavenly places as churches in every corner of our planet sound forth songs of deliverance, reaffirming the Lordship of Jesus over all other powers.
