Births, deaths, weddings, surgeries, relocating are all a part of the richness of life. However, they can really suck up time. Have you noticed?
So now with great excitement, I’ve dusted off the Praying the Names of God project. It has a fine start on the website with an extensive list of Names and accompanying Scriptures.
Each of the four pages of names begins with Scriptures to motivate you to pursue a study of the Names of God. Consider this one:
Acts 3:16 And His name, through faith in His name has made this man strong.
Made strong? Who isn’t looking for more strength in this day? If ever in history we’ve needed to strike spiritual gold, this is it!
When I first started research on the project, I came across a statement in the Jewish Encyclopedia that explained what I was experiencing.
"the divine name is often spoken of as equivalent to the divine presence or power or glory.”
You will notice, as I have, that as you spend time reflecting on the Names of God that there is a spiritual strength and quickening comes . This quickening does have the feel of Divine Presence. See for yourself.
Click on over to Praying the Names of God to get your list of Names together and read the suggestions there. Get started!
I’ll post a bit on this topic in the next couple of weeks and then start a podcast of praying the Names of God. Podcast?!! I can hardly believe I’m finally making a commitment to this. Wow! It’s a new year.
