The Power of God's Names

In Scripture, God reveals Himself to us through His names.  To fully grasp the significance and power of God's names, we first need to understand the importance of names in ancient cultures.  In Old Testament times, a name was more than simply nomenclature.  Rather, it revealed important information about the individual or thing itself.

Because of the depth of God's character, He has various names that reflect the many ways He relates to humanity.  For example, God is called Elohim when revealing Himself as the all-powerful Creator.  He is Jehovah Nissi--the Lord's banner of victory, a name you need to know when seeking victory in your life.  God is also known as Jehovah Rapha, or the Lord your healer.  When you are in need of provision, get to know the name Jehovah Jireh--God, the provider.

God has a name for every situation in which we find ourselves.  We need to learn the names of God because when we know His character and His capacity, we will find rest and discover peace and power in His covenantal care of us.
