The Daily Grace - His Name is Powerful


God has a lot of names that describes His magnificent characteristics. God is so wonderfully multifaceted that He has many names that communicate His capabilities and character. His Name is indeed all-powerful. It portrays a lot of words that declares His wonders and goodness.

It's no wonder the writer of Proverbs encourages us to remember that "the name of the Lord is a strong tower", that in times of need God-fearing people run to it and "are safe" (Prov. 18:10). God's names, which describe His character, can bring comfort when we need it most. To name just a few, He is: Elohim (the God above all gods), Jehovah Jireh (the God who provides), El-Shaddai (the almighty God), Jehovah Rapha (our healer God), Jehovah Shalom (the God of peace), Jehovah Shamma (our God who is present) and Jehovah Yahweh (our loving, covenant-keeping God).

When unwelcome circumstances threaten you and you feel vulnerable, reflect on one of God's names. Be assured - He will be faithful to His Name. Declare His Name in your prayers. It is an all-powerful, mighty one, that can move mountains.
