Review: Experiencing God Through His Names

Experiencing God Through His Names
By Sheryl Giesbrecht
Bold Vision Books, 2016


What's in a name?

Names are more than groups of letters that represent a person or identify objects. Names are powerful. A person's character and destiny can be influenced by his or her name. God's attributes and personality support His unique and distinct names. If we comprehend the meanings of His titles, we can know God more intimately. 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. In the next 31 days, God wants you to get to know Him. Are you ready?

My thoughts

Just over 100 pages in length, Experiencing God Through His Names is an excellent devotional that focuses on 31 ways in which God has revealed Himself to us. Each chapter begins with a personal vignette by Sheryl Giesbrecht, followed by a description, Scripture references and application.

Some names are familiar and have been made popular through song – like El Shaddai, Adonai, Deliverer, Ancient of Days. Others are not so familiar. Personally, I found this devotional helpful because I know many of God’s names and I know meanings, but I can’t always pair them up correctly. Through this collection of meditations, I also learned a few new ones that mean everything to me – Jehovah Tsidkenu, our righteousness; Zur, God our Rock; Jehovah Shammah, the name of God that promises His presence.

I can’t think of a better gift for a seeker or a new believer than Experiencing God Through His Names. For devotional purposes, it is one seasoned believers would enjoy also.

I love to dwell on the names of God. I love that God chose to reveal Himself through these various names. And I recommend Experiencing God Through His Names as a meaningful devotional resource.

I received this book free of charge from Litfuse Publicity.
