Meanings of Names of God

Discover the meanings of names of God in the Bible along with what they tell us about His character and how we can use them to know Him better and call upon Him in prayer.

There is something more intimate and personal when we use someone's name in conversation.  The same is true when we come to God in prayer.

Learning the Bible names of God is exciting because they help us come to know Him better!

In Bible times, names meant more than a label to call someone.  They were descriptive of character and gave identity.  The same goes for the names of God in the Bible.  They have meaning.

Our God is Elohim, our Creator, but the Bible also calls Him our Father.  He is both Jehovah Jireh, the LORD Our Provider, and Jehovah Shammah, the LORD Who is There.  

Each points us to His character and identity; they are based upon His attributes displayed as He interacts with mankind within the Biblical narrative and within our own stories too.  God desires to be known.

Are you in need of a hero?  Call upon El Gibhor, Mighty God Who Rescues.  Are you needing to sense God's nearness?  Call upon Elohei Mikkarov. 

We all have our different names we are called such as Mom or Dad, Sister or Brother, Teacher, Doctor, Nurse, Mr. Whomever, our given name, etc.  We are more than what can be summed up in one name, and God's identity cannot be summed up in a single name either.

The Bible names of God are so much more than just a name.

Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
