Lent day 20: Who is Ram?
Luke 3: 33 “the son of Ram”
His name means ‘to be raised up’ or simply ‘high’.
The Greek translation has the name Aram which then introduces the picture of the nation of Aram (modern day Syria) who would relentlessly rise up and attack Israel.
Today you may wake to a rising ‘enemy’ over your life. They arrogantly overshadow your life. Perhaps this enemy is relentless. Maybe it feels like one man or even a nation of soldiers coming against you.

No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord. Isaiah 54:17
When Saul had sent men to watch David’s house in order to kill him.
Deliver me from my enemies, O God; be my fortress against those who are attacking me. Psalm 59:1
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. Psalm 27:3
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
Lent is a time to let go, of surrender and it is a time to fearlessly face your ‘enemy’ that rages against you soul. Jesus did exactly this and it is good to remind ourselves today as we think of this name Ram that:
God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2: 9-11
There is no one higher than Jesus, not even your Ram. Be reminded today.
