Different Names for our God

my Jehovah-jireh: the God who provides

my Jehovah-raah: the caring Shepherd

my Jehovah-shalom: the Lord is peace

my Jehovah-rophe: the God who heals

my Jehovah-nissi: Lord, my banner

Abba: Father

Adonai: Master

El Olam: the everlasting God

Elohim: God the creator

 

When we use the names of God it unpacks so much more about who he is! 

What’s your favorite?

    These are such powerful names. I feel more peaceful when I say ‘Jehovah-shalom’. Thanks for sharing these.

      Ah, you are so right. For me I’m really clinging to Jehovah-jirah lately… he provides so well.
