Why are there so many names for God? Why is it important that we know what they are and what they mean? Our finite, human brains cannot fully comprehend the majesty and glory of who God is. Yet through the various names of God, He chooses to reveal Himself to us so we can come to understand the many personal characteristics of God. His names reveal His power, authority, and holiness. The better we understand and know the names of God the more personal He becomes to us and as we pray, we can call on His name that corresponds with our need. Finally, because the Bible instructs us to honor, fear, and respect God and to not use His name in vain, we need to know exactly what His names are and what they mean. Today, we look at the name Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah
Today’s Name: Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah
Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah, we confess that we often try to face life’s battles in our own strength. Instead of trusting you as the Lord Mighty In Battle, we never consult you in the battle plan and come up with our own. Then, when we fail, we blame you, question you, and decide to sit on the sidelines. But you, Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah, are my strength and my song, my salvation, my God, and I will praise You. You are a warrior and the Lord is Your name. Your right hand is majestic in power and it shatters the enemy. And in the greatness of Your excellence You overthrow those who rise up against You. You have already defeated Satan and today, I live in the victory that you have already achieved.
Father, show us who You are as we discover and learn about your many names.
Reveal to us why You are worthy of being called the One True, Living God. May we learn about your characteristics, nature, and your great love for us. Teach us to unabashedly love you, respect Your name, and serve only You. Make your character known to us so we can live and walk in your image. Amen.
