Did you know the names of God each reveal something about His character? Are you aware that understanding God's titles reveals His purposes and His commitment to us and gives practical handles for life applications? There are many ways to draw close to God as we study His word. In Experiencing God Through His Names, Sheryl Giesbrecht walks with you on an exciting journey to discover and absorb the truth about God's character. Spiritually, something exciting and personal happens when we study God's names---we find out about His unique character qualities and experience His Holy Spirit presence. In the next 31 days, God wants you to get to know Him. Are you ready? My review: First off, let me say that even though this book is written by a woman and there is a woman pictured on the book, this is not geared for women.
The book is a 31-day devotional, with each day focusing on a different name of God used in the Bible. Each day starts out with a short narrative the devotional will be based on, then the introduction of the name and what it means. That is followed by an application to our lives of that name, and it ends with a prayer focusing on that name.
This is something that interests me, so I really enjoyed this devotional. By not using or by overlooking the various names of God, we miss out on the traits and meanings He is showing us when those names are used.
The author does a great job on these devotionals, and it is obvious she put a lot of thought and prayer into them. As I read through them, I was helped and encouraged to see the meanings of some names I wasn't sure about, and to be reminded of the ones I did know. This book would be great for men or women, and will be a blessing and encouragement as you read and think about the different names of God and their meanings.
I was given a copy of this book to review.
