There's great power in a name. It says who we are, it's what we are known by to all those around us.
And there's nothing so powerful as the name of our Lord God. The Bible says the name of the Lord is like a strong tower; the righteous can run to it and be saved. In a world that often feels chaotic and fear-filled, His name is the one to hold close.
God is the only One who never changes. His character, His name remains the same through all generations. He is fully trustworthy, always powerful, forever loving, and constantly present with us. Studying what God’s Word says about all that He is can help us to understand his very nature and character even more.
If you need some extra reassurance today, find hope in His powerful name. He is the God of miracles and nothing is impossible for Him. He split the seas, and delivered His people straight through, away from all their enemies. He offered His protection through desert days, and lovingly led them in the wilderness to the promised land. He provided a way for us to be saved through His Son Jesus Christ, and He gave us His Spirit to help us today. Don't believe the lie that God is distant, too busy, that He doesn’t care about you, or that He is just waiting for you to mess up so he can tell you all you've done wrong. That's not who his name says He is.
We hold the promise that His love is everlasting, His mercies are new every morning, and His faithfulness is great. Jesus told us to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and strength…” A good way to walk that out daily is to know God’s very character through the power of His name.
Pray these truths back to Him, focus on one each day, or write them down in a place where you can be constantly reminded of His awesome presence in your life.
