The One Name We Worship

"The heavenly Father, who offers to meet us in the inner chamber has no other object than to fill our hearts with His love" wrote Andrew Murray. One of the ways we can receive His love is to take time to consider who our heavenly Father is.

The psalmist calls on us to praise the name of the Lord not just once, but dozens of times. I find it helpful to apply the Names of God, or words we used to describe Him, to my immediate situation. For instance, I might pray, "God, You are Able for this need; Thank You for being my Burden-bearer, my Counselor, my Deliverer...." As I go through the alphabet, my faith grows through this act of worship. Maybe this list will be helpful as you offer Him a sacrifice of praise.
