God is…

inspiredDaniel 11:32b says “Those who know their God shall be valiant and do great exploits”! Knowing God leads to incredible strength and bravery. The Bible shows us that we know God through His Name. Here’s some wonderful truths about God’s incredible Name:

Firstly, He reveals Himself through many Names; Names that mean things like: “The Lord my sanctifier”, “The Lord my shepherd”,  “The Lord who is present”,  “The Lord our healer”,  “The Lord our righteousness”, “The Lord will provide”, “The Lord is peace”, “The Lord of Hosts”, “The God of Recompense”, “The Most High God”, “The strong One who sees”, “The everlasting God”.

But then let me give you an A-Z of God’s Names and character, taken from a blog I found some time ago (Sorry, I cannot remember the source).
