The Power Of A Name

I love the names of God that describe His magnificent characteristics. God is so wonderfully multifaceted that He has many names that communicate His capabilities and character.

Elohim – the God above all gods.
Jehovah Jireh – the God who provides.
El-Shaddai – the almighty God.
Jehovah Rapha – our healer God.
Jehovah Shalom – our God of peace.
Jehovah Shamma – our God who is present.
Jehovah Yahweh – our loving, covenant-keeping God.

When unwelcome circumstances threaten you and you feel vulnerable, reflect on one of God’s names. Be assured – He will be faithful to His name.

Lord, remind us that your names reveal Your
Character. Help us to remember them in our times of
Need and distress. Thank You for the assurance
That You are faithful to Your name.

God’s names, which describe His character, can bring comfort when we need it most.
