Worship Theme :
The Names of God
Knowing God by name can strengthen your relationship with Him.
By knowing His different names you can come to a better understanding of who God is and what He wants of your life. Knowing Godís names helps us approach Him in a more intimate way.
A man can be known by many names: son, brother, husband, father, employer, friend. Each name describes a different aspect of who that man is.
We know God as our Father, our Provider, our Healer, and many more names.
Some Hebrew names for God: Elohim, Jehovah, Adonai, El Shaddai, etc
There are over 80 OLD TESTAMENT names for God.
By knowing Him by His names, we better appreciate the different relationships we can have with Him.
Through His names God reveals that He is the source and solution to our problems. The various names of God teach us to look to Him in our crises. If we know Godís names, we can more freely turn to Him in the name that fits our situation.
