Unpack the meanings of God's names through The Power of God's Names: Personal Bible Study, which has study and learning activities for five days a week with Scriptures. In order to truly grasp the significance and power of knowing God's names, you must first understand the context of names within Biblical cultures. In Old Testament times, a name was more than just a nomenclature. It was, instead, a replica and revelation of the individual thing itself.
This study explores 11 names of God. The words translated as name appear over one thousand times in Scripture, and typically carry with them power, responsibility, purpose, and authority. Because of God's depth of character, He has a variety of names to reveal His different ways of relating to humanity. For example, God is called Elohim when referenced as the all-powerful Creator. Jehovah Jireh is God, the Provider. God has a name for any and every situation you find yourself in. Get to know the names of God, because it is in knowing His character and His capacity that you will rest and discover both peace and power in His covenant care.
