Sunday Devotion

I took a Bible study several years ago called the “Names of God.” I have learned to rely on His different names (“Hallowed be Your name”) at different times of my life.  The study was Lord, I Want to Know You by Kay Arthur, Precept Ministries International. I learned His names reveal His character. I want to know Him more, so His character is the best way to know Him. To know His character is to know and understand the depths of His love. So I rely on His names as I pray.  My constant prayer is that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to (me) the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.” Ephesians 1:17

A sample of the Names of God from the Old Testament is included.  You can also do a simple Internet search to find more.
