A Glorious Name


Inspired by Sara’s post, I took a moment to record these several names of God and their meanings. There is much in a name and knowing the meaning of the names of God is one step closer to knowing His nature and His character. One can’t help but be blessed when reading the following list! Take a moment and reflect on the meaning of each – and how the Lord manifests Himself in your life – through His names.

Adonai-Jehovah -- The Lord our Sovereign
El-Elyon -- The Lord Most High
El-Olam -- The Everlasting God
El-Shaddai -- The God Who is Sufficient for the Needs of His People
Jehovah-Elohim -- The Eternal Creator
Jehovah-Jireh -- The Lord our Provider
Jehovah-Nissi -- The Lord our Banner
Jehovah-Ropheka -- The Lord our Healer
Jehovah-Shalom -- The Lord our Peace
Jehovah-Tsidkenu -- The Lord our Righteousness
Jehovah-Mekaddishkem -- The Lord our Sanctifier
Jehovah-Sabaoth -- The Lord of Hosts
Jehovah-Shammah -- The Lord is Present
Jehovah-Rohi -- The Lord our Shepherd
Jehovah-Hoseenu -- The Lord our Maker
Jehovah-Eloheenu -- The Lord our God


Often times, when praying or worshipping, I will address the Lord by one of His many names. I am blessed and I believe He is blessed in return.

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
-Psalm 91:14


Be Blessed today!

I've known the names on this list forever and yet every time I read them it's like the first time all over again. They move me to tears every time. Awesome.
