The many names of God

It’s powerful to pray to and praise God in all situations. What has really proven to me to be even more powerful is calling on God’s individual names as I pray, knowing that the part of God I am speaking to is the part I need to rescue or comfort me. My professor put it like this, “When a child is injured, she doesn’t need the disciplinary side of her mother to show up, she needs her nurturing side to come and comfort her.” I’ve prayed to the many names of God and felt powerful as I am saying the Word right back to the Creator. I challenge you to try it!

~This is a comprehensive list I found online~

I am a 32 year old teacher in Georgia, originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!). I am also a singer and I recently taught myself how to play guitar. For fun, I enjoy reading and lots of Netflix binges, which is my American right! I have also been known to cycle, run half marathons, and do just about whatever I set my mind to. A charming shepherd-mix dog named Kingsley lives with me and keeps me laughing at his antics at every turn. I am learning how to love the life I live with each passing day. Sometimes it's easy...other times, I write about it.

One thought on “The many names of God”

  1. MY FAVE (today anyway):
    Jehovah-Sabaoth – Lord of Hosts

    The word “hosts” refers to:
    THE ARMY THAT IS READY AND WAITING FOR THE APPOINTED TIME…. woot!

    So next time you’re reading and you come across LORD OF HOSTS, notice how it speaks of WAITING on God to UNLEASH is ARMY at the appointed time!

    AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!
    (thanks for posting this… now you’ve fired me up!)
