The Power of A Name

Proverbs encourages us to remember that “the name of the Lord is a strong tower,” that in times of need God-fearing people run to it and “are safe” (Prov. 18:10).

God has many names that describes his magnificient characteristics. Here’s just a few;

Elohim –  the God above all gods

Jehovah Jireh –  the God who provides

Jehovah Nissi – the Lord my banner

El-Shaddai – the almighty God

El Roi – the God who sees

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.

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

Names of God
