Know Him as He Is

My Name Is...God longs for you to know Him personally. Throughout Scripture He reveals Himself through stories — and His names. Usually it is a life crisis that brings our hearts the understanding of who God really is! He is always the answer.

All through life we learn HOW God is the answer to the cries and longings of our heart. The list below is just a sampling of the ways God has revealed Himself in Scripture. Spend time with the verses, read them in context. Ask the Holy Spirit to help your heart expand to understand what your head is learning.  For more thoughts on the Names of God, be sure to check out the Glory Glimpse Series.
