Israel knew their God as “the LORD Who Sanctifies,” “the LORD Is Peace,” “the LORD of Hosts,” “the LORD God Almighty,” and “the LORD My Rock and My Redeemer.”
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.
The psalmist says, “Give thanks to the LORD and praise his name. For he is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. . . . Those who know your name will trust in you” (Ps 100:4b,5; 9:10a). The LORD says, “Those who love me, I will deliver; I will protect those who know my name.” (Ps 91:14). Each of God’s names represents a dimension of him still exhibited today—somewhere, somewhere. Clicking on the below scriptures will open these names within the paragraphs they are found in the Bible.
1. The LORD Who Sanctifies Exodus 31:13
2. The LORD Is Peace Judges 6:24
3. The LORD of Heaven’s Armies 1 Samuel 17:45
4. The LORD God Almighty 2 Samuel 5:10
5. The LORD, My Rock and My Redeemer Psalm 19:14
Every day, for the foreseeable future, I hope to post five more names of God.
