The one thing about believers in Christ is that we know the name of God. He actually has many names that speak the the character, nature and the abilities that He can possess at times, from a provider, a protector, a shield, our strength and even healer. That is why is is so wonderful to understand the meanings behind these and how the appear when they are reference in Scripture in their original context from Hebrew. We don't see it when we read our revised versions or modern day translations and whenever we see the word God mentioned, while it does reference God the Almighty and Creator but more importantly how that is referenced in the context of how God is being addressed.
This can lead us into very specific prayers when we are praying to Jehovah Rapha or the God Who Heals when some is sick, going through illness or breathing their last breaths that God can and will at times heal this side of heaven, but He always heals even on the other side in heaven if He has bigger plans in store for us. When prayers are based on solid truth such as praying the very nature of God's names, our prayers become deeper in substance and combined with prayer and worship, it provides God such great delight in His heavenly throne room.
Just as Jesus knew the very essence of who God was and what He could do, by learning this names of God we can make our prayer life more powerful and our prayers more specific. When we study the names of God, we find out about His unique character qualities and experience His Holy Spirit presence. This book is designed to spend 31 days experiencing and studying the individual names of God, how to experience God's power in fresh ways, and increase our intimacy through prayer with God. Exodus 20:24 says, "Wherever I cause My name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you." God wants us to understand Him as we study His character through His names.
I received Experiencing God Through His Names by Sheryl Giesbrecht compliments of Bold Vision Books and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased and fair opinion of the book. I had known a few of the names of God but always wanted to understand more of His personal attributes so I could personalize my prayers more specifically to my needs or the needs of people I was praying for. This is such a great way to spend the next 31 days getting to meditate and study the nature of who God is in many different ways. It has transformed my prayer life and it is a reference book I keep nearby to respond to my call to prayer for others. I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
