The metaphors for and description of God are too numerous to mention. Here are a few of them: “Lord of the harvest,” “my Father, the gardener,” “the God who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist,” “God who justifies the wicked,” and “the spring of living waters.”
Consider meditating on the below scriptures and allowing God to use them to inform your thoughts, prayers, and decisions for today. The names of God still fuel my daily prayers and life, both private and public. They also inform my desire to “know God and make him known.” May they similarly serve you in this way.
Each of these descriptions represents a dimension of God still exhibited today—somewhere, somehow. Clicking on the below scriptures will open them within the paragraphs they are found in the Bible.
1. Lord of the harvest (Matt 9:38)
2. My Father, the gardener (John 15:1)
3. The God who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist (Rom 4:17)
4. God who justifies the wicked (Rom 4:5)
5. The spring of living waters (Jer 2:13)
Every day, for the foreseeable future, I hope to post five more names of God.

“May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (Heb 13:20–21).
