Names of God - Janet Sketchley

“'I will strengthen them in the LORD and in his name they will walk,' declares the LORD.” Zechariah 10:12, NIV

“Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Psalm 9:10, NIV

The names of God in Scripture reveal His character. Knowing Him lets us walk in confidence in Him.

Some names of God that mean the most to me:

Father to the fatherless (Psalm 68:5)
Redeemer (Psalm 19; Job 19:25)
Ancient of Days (Daniel 7)
King of the Nations (Jeremiah 10:7)
God of my life (Psalm 42:8)
God of hope (Romans 15:13)
Shepherd (Psalm 23)
Fortress, Deliverer, Shield (Psalm 18)

What would you add to the list?

Why not take a few minutes to let Robin Mark's song, Be Unto Your Name, bless your spirit?
