The Lord is my strength

Author: Monica Koch

Exo 15:2  “The LORD is my strength and song, and He is become my salvation: He is my God, and I will prepare Him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt Him."

{Exo 15:2  “Yah is my strength and song, and He has become my deliverance. He is my Ěl, and I praise Him – Elohim of my father, and I exalt Him."} – The Scriptures

He who has God for his strength, will have Him for his song; and he to whom Jehovah is become salvation, will exalt His name.

It is worthy of observation that the word which we translate Lord here, is not יהוה  YEHOVAH in the original, but יה  Yah.   It signifies He who Is, simply, absolutely, and independently. [Psalms 68:5,6; Psalms 94:7; Psalms 115:17-18; Psalms 118:17.]

Yah יה is several times joined with the name Yehovah יהוה so that we may be sure that it is not, as some have supposed, a mere abbreviation of that word. [Isa 12:2; Isa 26:4.] The Lord solemnly claims to Himself what is intended in this Divine name יה  Yah, John 8:58 : “Before Abraham was, (γενεσθαι, was born), εγω ειμι, I Am,” not I was, but I am, plainly intimating his Divine eternal existence. Col 1:16-17, where the Apostle Paul, after asserting that all things that are in heaven and that are in earth, visible and invisible, were created, εκτισται, by and for Christ, adds And He Is (αυτος εστι, not ην, was) before all things, and by Him all things συνεστηκε, have subsisted, and still subsist.

Christ is God, truly God, as appears from the names given Him, particularly Jehovah. From the perfections ascribed to Him, from the works done by Him, and from the worship of Him both by angels and men; and He is His people's God, their Immanuel, God in their nature, the God in whom they believe, and in whom they have an interest. 

He is the God of our salvation, the Lord our righteousness; our Lord, head, and King; our husband, beloved, Father, brother, friend; our God and guide, even unto death; our portion and exceeding great reward, now and hereafter: wherefore Moses, or the people of Israel, or both, determine to "prepare" Him an "habitation", being concerned that He had no better dwelling place among them than He had; and seem to have some respect unto, and knowledge of an habitation hereafter to be built, the tabernacle and temple; which were typical of the human nature of Christ, and of His church.  But they were both of God's preparing, and not men's.  An habitation in the hearts of His people may be chiefly designed; the preparation of which, though it is principally and efficaciously of the Spirit of God, yet in some sense may be said to be prepared by the saints, when they show a concern for grace to be in exercise.  This means to have duty regularly and constantly performed in a manner acceptable to Him, and that no disturbance be given to occasion his departure from them.

Every man may call the Divine Being his God; but only those who are His children by adoption through grace can call Him their Father. This is a privilege which God has given to none but His children.  Gal 4:6 “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”
