Do You Call Him By Name?

God is known by so many names and He manifests Himself in them All. Praying to Him by name is one of the most powerful forms of prayer that we can utilize. If we are going to have a conversation with our God then we need to at least call Him by Name and we ought to know the meaning of the names that we crying out.

Often when I am talking with Him I will call him Abba which means Father. I love calling upon my Father God because I know that just as I desire to bless my child He as my Father desires to do the same for me. As a woman who lost both of her parents early in life knowing Him as Father, Daddy … has brought me great comfort in my life. Just knowing that I can call upon Him as my Daddy God and He will answer me fills me with great peace and joy. He wants to reveal Himself to us as Daddy God and if we invite Him as Father … He will manifest Himself in our lives as the perfect Daddy.

He is also called Yahweh Shammah which means “The Lord is There.” How comforting it is to know that He is the God that never leaves us or forsake us. He is always there with us even when we feel as though we are all alone. He goes before us as our front guard and our rear guard. He longs to show Himself to us and reveal Himself as “The Lord is There” in our lives.

Ish means Husband … that is right I said “Husband.” For those of us who have suffered the loss of a spouse whether it is through divorce, separation or death His promise is to be our Husband. How wonderful is that! If you are single and desiring to be married let Him be your husband … He will manifest Himself in so many ways that you will be amazed as you experience Him as husband. He will hold you and comfort you. He will share with you His hearts desire and He will listen as you share yours. He is the perfect husband.

He is Yahweh Tsuri … The Lord My Rock. He is a place of strength! Our God is a firm foundation and a solid place to rest in your time of weakness. He promises to hide us in the cleft of the rock and protect us from harm. He can stand between us and the plans of the enemy … a shield and rock. He is the Rock of our Salvation! He is the Lord My Rock!

El Olam refers to The Everlasting God or Eternal God which reminds us that He IS and will FOREVER BE! There is none like Him in all the Heavens or in all the earth. He is the Alpha and Omega. I constantly remind myself that His love is everlasting, unfailing and unconditional because He is THE EVERLASTING GOD! How wonderful it is to know that He is Faithful.

Lastly, I would like to share with you one of my favorite names for Him. El Roi for He is The God Who Sees Me. No matter where I am, no matter what I am doing, whether I am crying or laughing or working or playing … He sees me. I am secure in the knowledge that He knows everything that is going on with me because He sees me. He is right there with me and He sees my coming and my going, my ups and my downs. He watches over me and makes my crooked paths straight. He is The God Who Sees Me.

He is called by many names but if you don’t know the meaning of the names by which He is called you may not recognize the magnificence of who He is and the wonderful God it is that you are calling upon. Know Him by name … become intimate with Him in this way so that you will grow in your relationship with Him and in your faith. Call Him By Name!

He is our everything! His love is neverending, we are so blessed to be able to lean on Him:) I am so thankful, He made a way for us to be seen, as spotless and without a blemish. My finite mind, has a hard time understanding some things, or even accepting. Accepting His forgiveness for me. The offering of His Son, for the sacrafices of our sins. I am so appreciative that God raised Jesus from the dead, after all He went through physically and spiritually for each person. Well put together hub:) Thank you!

Absolutely marvelous! When we stop and ponder the fact that God does in fact see us it causes us to be much more careful about what we do. It also is the greatest source of comfort knowing we are never alone. Love this!

Wonderful! As time goes by, as we read, pray and seek, knowledge comes, and with knowledge comes truth. He is pleased by our drawing nearer and nearer to Him. Isaiah 42:8 'I am Yahweh, that is My Name: and My glory I will not give to another. . .' Peace

Precious Pearl: I am very familiar with Our Father's many names. My favorites are "Abba" and "I AM". I also refer to His Son Jesus as my brother, as do I refer to Holy Spirit as my brother. They are my family.

Precious Pearl: To me he has always been my beloved Father. I feel that regardless of which name we use to address God, He knows and understands and loves us enough even to forgive us if we know not the meaning of how we address Him.

Hi Dave! I would agree with you. I would also add that it can only enhance your relationship with Him to acknowledge Him by His many names as well. It would only honor Him even more!
