When I see all His names, I am reminded of those same ways that I need Him, and the ways that He just IS, my needs set aside. He is so great and so awesome. Thank you for sharing these wonderful names that represent our Lord. Blessings, Susan.

Hebrews is a great book. I tagged you for a fun game, come check it out.

Lisa said...

Thanks for that Susan.
This reminds me of the song Amy Grant made popular years ago..."El Shaddai".
And the partial verse from the hymn you added at the end...'Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord...'
Praise His name!
