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.
