Let’s make the rest of our summer the best of our summer.
So glad you can join me for a 31-day experience as we draw close to God. I can’t wait for you to find out how God will show you more of His power and presence. Years ago, I was a stressed-out young pastor’s wife, worked a job outside of our home, was mother of a preschooler and kindergartener, was exhausted from the demands of my family and ministry. I was desperate in need of support and friends. God connected me with a Moms In Touch group (now known as Moms in Prayer International). This phenomenal group of women loves to pray and taught me how to worship God by praying His names. This practice has not only deepened my prayer life; it has increased my faith. I’ve become more acquainted with God’s character and now am so thankful to be actively seeking an ever-expanding trust in an Almighty God.
If you haven’t ever studied the names of God, you are in for a treat. 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 presence. In the next few weeks, we will take 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.
During the next few weeks, we will journey together to:
- Understand 31 of God’s names
- Experience God’s power in fresh ways
- Explain 31 of God’s names to others
- Increase our desire for intimacy with God
- Apply our experience with God to other areas of life—parenting, marriage, marketplace and personal communication
Did you know, 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? 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, then 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.
