I used to try and figure out the best answers when something happened in our lives. 2020 has bombarded life with problems that I simply have no answers for. I found myself quickly getting weary trying to handle what’s next. So as I turned to God for the answers I do not have, I found it’s easier to pray using God’s names to remind me who He is. Here are just a few of God’s names:
Elohim -means “God”. Simply God. Have you ever thought about how huge and all-encompassing that name means? He is the one and only God, He is Sovereign, He is the one we can fully rely on.
Yahweh - means “Lord”. The name means the One of authority, the One with great power, the “I AM”.
Abba - means “Daddy, Father”. This name shows His love for us as His children. When we are facing difficult times, we can run to his open arms for comfort and safety.
El Elyon - means “God Most High”. This name shows that He is bigger than any problem we face in our lives. It shows us that he is fully in control.
El Roi - means “God Who Sees”. This name shows that He watches over us.
El Shaddai- means “God Almighty”. This name reminds us that He is all-powerful. We can rest and find comfort in Him.
There are so many names for God in the Bible. I hope to learn more of His names over time because they remind me about who He is and that He cares for me. He has showed me that no problem is too small or too much for God. He knows what we need even when we do not.
In His Name,
Our staff is voluntold each week and with grace they share their thoughts.
