Alpha and Omega
So many ways to say that You're all we need
Calmer of Storms
So many names for the One who will save us all
Crown of Glory
So brightly You shine in this dark world
One Who Sanctifies
So much love that it overflows
Satisfier of Desires
So gracious that no need goes unmet
Mighty and Terrible
So much more than words can express
Rock of Salvation
In us all
Have you ever wondered why God is called by so many names? I like to think that it is all about personifying each of His overwhelming characteristics, adding His face and His glory to each aspect of His love for us. By giving a name to each way He moves, we are united with Him in our individual walks. The heavy hearted can shout out to the Comforter, the lost to the Shepherd, the weak to the All Mighty, the hungry to the Living Bread, the weary to the Lifter of Our Head, the frightened to the Keeper. Each need is personally met by the One and Only, no matter which of His names you call. Somehow, knowing that He is specifically what we need in all situations makes it that much more meaningful to call His name.
I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness;
for your promises are backed
by all the honor of your name.
As soon as I pray, you answer me;
you encourage me by giving me strength.
In your many names,
