A name is powerful. It tells who we are and helps people around us identify who we are. Just like God’s names. There is nothing more powerful than the names of God in the Bible.
God’s name is referred to as a strong tower in the Bible. We all can turn to him and be saved. We can always trust Him to conquer whatever trials and challenges we are facing.
Since God never changes, we can rely on His character in every generation. He is always with us. He is faithful, loving, and trustworthy. He is present with us at all times, ready to protect us from our enemies.'God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.' Psalm 46:1 Click To Tweet
Studying the Word of God helps us to understand the very nature and character of God. We see several different names for God in the Bible and we can study each one to know Him better.'For with God, nothing will be impossible.' Luke 1:37Click To Tweet
We can find hope in His name. He is the God of miracles. Don’t ever believe the lie that He doesn’t love you or that He doesn’t care about your current circumstances. He cares about everything and He knows everything about you. He is never too busy!
Praise Him for sending Jesus to die for our sins and giving us the Holy Spirit to help guide us. He loves us so much!
The Names of God and their Meaning are important because they help us understand who He is. Knowing the names of God will help you grow closer to Him and remember that He is with us every moment.
