Names of our Lord and Savior

Have you ever wondered about all the names of GOD? Here they are and what they mean and where they can be found:

Elohim: Powerful GOD: Gen.1:1
Adonai: Lord: Gen. 15:2
El Elyon: God Most High: Gen. 14:19-20
El Shaddai: Almighty God: Gen. 17:1
Yahweh: Israel's Convential God: Exodus 3:14
Jehovah Jireh: The Lord Provides: Gen. 22:14
Jehovah Rophe: The Lord Heals: Exodus 15:26

Jehovah Tsidkenu: The Lord is Our Righteousness: Jeremiah 23:6

When you cry out to the Lord, be specific and call him by the name of him as your need or desire. He's there for ALL things, he loves us and wants us to seek him for all of our needs.

For Jesus:

Word of GOD

Our Savior goes by all those name and when and if you call out any of them, he hears YOU, most of all he loves you, and he'll answer you. Does he always give us the answers we want? No, I'm living proof of that, but that doesn't mean he loves you any less, that his comfort is more or less than had he said yes, that the lesson is more than we can handle. He's there every step of the way with us. He's "THE TRUTH"...the Alpha and Omega (Beginning and End) and he never leaves us.

Next Saturday will be 10 years since my sweet Jordyn went home to Heaven. I am not a fan of May 8, it's pretty well the worst day of MY life, yet I think of what a GLORIOUS DAY it must have been for Jordyn. Let me tell you, it's taken me 10 years to truly try to focus on the day for HER. I am in no denial that I very well may focus on how it effected me as well, but I truly and prayerfully want this day to be focused on my little girl and how wonderful our Lord is that he took her from the suffering she was experiencing, took her from this world full of sin, and gave her peace, comfort, and the perfection of Heaven. I couldn't ask for more for my sweet Jordyn. This is an emotional month for me. With Jordyn's Heaven day and the impending birth of our 5th child only a couple weeks later.....stick with me ok. Pray for me, praise JESUS, and call out his NAMES. I'm living proof that we live through the worst thing imaginable as mother can go through. I'm living proof that even in our storms, even when we feel MAD at GOD, when we don't understand WHY he didn't answer our prayers the way WE wanted him to, that we can still praise him, that we can still love him, and that most of all he still loves us. Even when I screamed out to him in anger, in grief...he NEVER left him. Even when I threw temper tantrums and refused to go to Church because it was the only way I knew to punish HIM, he loved me anyways. He loved ME anyways. He carried me through my darkest hours of grief and HE showed me there was light not just at the end of that dark tunnel I was in, but all the way through it. Jesus is our Light, He is our Comforter, and he never leaves us, ever.
I may not know what your valley is, where you are in that tunnel, but GOD is there and he knows. I will pray for you in any way you want me to. You don't need me though, the only one you need is Jesus.

amen to that, Christy, that Jesus is the only one we need (I wish more people would "get" it; what a world this would be)

I'm so sorry its been 10 years since Jordyn went home; I can't imagine the grief you've been through, but I know the Lord has been faithfully walking beside you day by day

I do pray the names of God and Jesus (not as much as I used to, but there is definitely power in using their names in prayer)

will keep you in my prayers this month
