This week l have been studying on the Names of God. I realised that the Names of God reveal and help us to understand:
- The character of God .
- Our needs and our redemption
- We get to know Him better and intimately hence we are able to praise God for who He is.
- We know the vast riches that are available to us as His children .
This is just what l learnt I’m sure there is so much more. How amazing is this though, to know that Jehovah- Jireh means he will provide, God sees before we even know what we need.
Moreover God actually named himself Jehovah-Rapha ( Exodus15:26). healing is what He is. Anytime we are in need of healing we can remind God of who He is..
In all our battles – God is Jehovah-Nissi our victory banner, he fights all our battles.
When we are distressed and disturbed- God is Jehovah-Shalom, The Lord our peace.
Whenever we feel alone, God is Jehovah-Shammah. He lives in us, he is in our hearts.
Whenever we feel we are lost we remember we have Jehovah-Raah The Lord our shepherd, he guides, feeds and protects.
☝🏽And God is Jehovah El-Shaddai, forever cherishing us and loving us like no one else can 🙌🏻. I think God is amazing.
God is just and all the things He does are right, -Jehovah Tsidkenu the Lord our righteousness, he justifies us and makes us righteous through Jesus Christ.
I realised that knowing the names of God is a very crucial step in having an intimate relationship with Him and experiencing his goodness in all the areas of our lives. Many times His answer is in His Name.
“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs to it and is safe and set on high [far above evil].”PROVERBS 18:10 AMP
Whenever we are faced with a need, a problem, a battle, a situation, let us call unto the name of The Lord our God, our refuge.
I hope you are encouraged
