 "O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens." (Psalms 8:1)

"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is safe." (Proverbs 18:10)

Our names are precious to us....they reveal who we are. They are a personal connection, a unique part of us. Names in Biblical times were very important, they revealed a person's character. As we read through Scripture we can see the importance of names, therefore, I think it should be a priority in our lives to learn the Names of God. He has been given many Names and each reveals Him in a different way. God's Names represent His attributes, His nature. I think it is important that we know God by His many Names. I hope you are encouraged and uplifted as you read these Names of God. I would urge you to take time to worship Him daily by calling upon Him using His various do so will be an awesome experience in knowing God.
