God has many names. Did you know that? Reading the Bible in English, you don't really get a sense of the variety of descriptive words used by the original authors. But Tony Evans' book The Power of God's Names introduces you to 14 of these names and what they mean for taking your relationship with God further.
Understanding who God is - creator, provider, healer, master - helps us trust in God no matter what our situation. God is multi-faceted. There's a lot we don't know about Him. But there's a lot we do know based on the words the writers of the Bible used to describe Him.
But it's more than just recognizing these aspects of God. It's about embracing them and using them to draw closer to God and accepting His help.
To paraphrase Jay-Z, you've got 99 problems, and there's a God name for each one.
The Power of God's Names is published by Harvest House Publishers and is on bookstore shelves now. I picked up a free review copy at Book Expo America with no obligation to review.
