Some Of God’s Beautiful Names

February 5, 2013

Friends,
Someone sent me a link yesterday that has some of the beautiful names of God listed, along with verses. Hearing these names of our majestic and wonderful Creator-King is soothing and strengthening, able to bring immediate peace to the souls of those who love the Lord.

Along with His Word, the Lord has exalted above all things His name (Ps. 138:2), the name of Jesus being the highest of His names. (Phil. 2:9-11) Therefore, the name of the Lord is all-powerful –just as God is– and when spoken by the Spirit of the Lord, anything can be done. Those who are in-dwelt and led by His Spirit are expected to make use of God’s name to further His will on the earth. Do we do this?

Maybe we don’t understand the extent of power that is in the name of the Lord. It is infinite –just as He is. His name is His essence, His presence, His ability, and His character. And because He Himself is Love, Beauty, Wisdom, Power, Goodness, and Holiness, so is His name. Because He is the Savior, the Deliverer, the Rock, the Ruler, and the Most High Majestic One, so then is His name. We are invited to run into His name as our High Tower and be protected (Prov. 18:10), to hide ourselves in His name and be rescued (Ps. 124:8), to call on His name and be saved. (Rom. 10:13)

Truly, the name of the Lord is awesome beyond comprehension. All of His names are! And indescribably comforting, precious, tender, and powerful. Just as He Himself is. What a blessing to know the One behind the Name. And what a blessing to be reminded of the glorious names God gives to Himself so that we might better trust in Him, might better give Him thanks, obedience, and service, and might better worship at His footstool in adoration and reverent, grateful, joyful praise.
