What's in a Name? - July 1

Click on the scripture to view the Be Exalted lyric video 

What is in a name?  A name identifies who you are, and in many cases, what you do.  My name is Joan, but there is more.   I have a middle name and a last name.   I am also known as a daughter, sister, mother, teacher, wife, singer, worshipper, etc.   I have many names that describe who I am. 

God is a God of many names.  Why is it necessary for us to recognize the importance of His names?  Because there is so much to learn about Him.  Also, God is able to relate to His people in a number of different ways because each of His names brings a deeper meaning of who He is.  There are so many facets of God.  We cannot begin to fathom His ways.  He is a gracious God who gives us the opportunity to learn more about Him and know Him.  He does it just because He loves us! 

Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples.(1 Chronicles 16:8) 

And it shall be that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. (Acts 2:21) 

Prayer for today:  LORD, we praise You for who You are.  You're God of the universe, Creator of our hearts, the Great I Am, The Everlasting God, Lion of Judah, The Holy One.  And we offer to You alone, our Highest Praise.  For no one else on the earth or in heaven compares to You!  Be exalted, O God!  We call upon Your Holy Name.  Reveal Yourself to us so that we can know you better.  Amen.
