The Name ~ Hashem

I continue to study Ann Spangler's book "Praying the Names of God" and linking up with Jill of Forever N Ever N Always.

This week the focus is on The Name or Hashem.  I love Ann's words:

God's name is associated with his glory, power, holiness, protection, trust, and love.  To call on his name is to call on his presence.  To act in his name is to act with his authority.  To fight in his name is to fight with his power.  To pray to his name is to pray to him.  ...God's name is his reputation.

In the Old Testament, Solomon built a temple in Jerusalem.  It was the place where the people could pray and God would hear them. It was the place where God's name would dwell. 

In the New Testament, Jesus prayed that His Father's name would be glorified through Him.  How thankful I am that I can call on the name of the Lord.

God seated Jesus on His right side and He continually intercedes for me today.  To me, that is so amazing!

God exalted Jesus and gave Him "the name that is above every name".

I can call on The Name when:
  1. I'm scared
  2. I'm lonely
  3. I'm hurting
  4. I'm uncertain what to do
  5. I need help
  6. I want to praise Him
  7. I want to thank Him
  8. I can't sleep
  9. I'm in trouble
When I pray to Hashem, I am praying to the holy God "who dwells in our midst, hearing and answering our prayers".

Jesus taught us how to pray in Luke 11:2-4.  As I pray I exercise my faith in the one true living, holy and powerful God.

I never want to take this privilege for granted. 

As a child of God, I pray that His Name will be glorified in my life.

Blessings and love,

I am always blessed when I stop by here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your prayers, support, and encouragement.

This is a great word to begin the week Debbie! There is just nothing in this life that the name of God doesn't cover in our lives. What a comfort that is.

I love that you've shared this book so clearly... it's like a great book report, and it's been a blessing.

Love you sis!

Thanks for sharing the names of our God. I love how the different names are associated with His different character traits. But above all, I feel so blessed that He is there, directly accessible to us when we call upon Him!

Living for Him, Joan

I don't think I had ever seen this name, but I truly loved reading your thoughts about it. God is so awesome - by any name, He is awesome!
