I can’t wait for you to experience God showing you more of His power and presence. I am very excited to announce that my new book, Experiencing God Through His Names, will release at the end of this month at the annual CBA/ICRS in Cincinnati, OH.
Did you know you can order your own signed autographed copy of Experiencing God Through His Names before the book drops? Send an email here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is my prayer that you and I will journey together in study and fellowship as we get to know God in this way.
Did you know that the names of God each reveal something about His character? Are you aware that understanding God’s titles reveals His purposes and His commitment to us and gives practical handles for life applications? There are many ways to draw close to God as we study His Word. Spiritually, something exciting and personal happens when we study God’s names; we find out about His unique character qualities and experience His Holy Spirit’s presence.
When we study the names of God, we:
Experience God’s power in fresh ways
Increase our desire for intimacy with God
Apply our experience with God to other areas of life – parenting, marriage, marketplace and personal communication
It takes time to examine these special names of God one by one; it’s like looking at a postcard of the Grand Canyon. The solo shots each show a segment of a breathtaking view. When we absorb truths about God one at a time, we can better understand the reality and certainty of His character and the capability of His presence in our daily lives.
Exodus 20:24 says, “Wherever I cause My name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you.” God wants us to understand Him as we study His character through His names. Take a minute to underline Exodus 20:24 in your Bible, and let’s pray:
“Heavenly Father, I honor Your name, I bless Your name, I praise Your name. I pray for Your wisdom, discipline and insight as I embark on the journey of knowing You by Your names. Lord, I want to experience You more. Thank You for Your willingness in allowing me to find You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
