Reflections on the Names of God: The Devotional That Keeps on Giving!
Ten years ago, I held my first published book, a one-year devotional on the names of God. Revell Books of Baker Publishing Group first released it in hardcover.
That was just the beginning.
Shortly after that, Revell published a special print run with a proprietary cover for a large bookstore chain. And three years later they released it in softcover with a new title, Daily Reflections on the Names of God: A Devotional.
And now in 2022 . . . Reflections on the Names of God: 180 Devotions to Know God More Fully is an abridged, hardcover gift book edition of the original devotional!
This new edition contains my favorite, personally-selected entries from the original book. And it’s now available wherever books are sold.
Not familiar with Reflections on the Names of God?
What’s in a name?
Shakespeare once asked, “What’s in a name?” When it comes to our wonderful God, the answer is, “Everything!”
Strange ideas are floating around our world today as to who or what God is. Some have been passed down from generation to generation, even within the church. People often speak of “my God” or “your God.” My God would never allow pain and suffering. Your God is archaic. My God is . . . and so it goes.
What is your understanding of who God is and how He works? Is it a biblical perspective, or have you been molding your understanding of God to fit your desires and expectations? If your perspective is not biblical, then it’s time to look at who God says He is and how God says He works.
Every name of God revealed in the Bible shows us something about His character and His ways. As the multiple facets of a cut diamond combine to reflect its brilliance, the names and attributes of God combine to reveal the transcendence of His nature and the glory of His ways.
With each new revelation, it’s as if God whispers to us, “Come closer, My child. I have something new I want to tell you about Me.” The more we learn, the easier it is to trust Him and rely on Him.
In Reflections on the Names of God, we explore each of sixty names and attributes of God in three ways. In the first devotion for each name or attribute, we “look up” to see how and why God describes Himself the way He does.
In the second devotion, we “look in” to focus on how the particular name or characteristic applies to our lives, and how it changes or strengthens our relationship with God.
Finally, in the third devotion focused on the same name or attribute, we “look out” to apply what we’re learning about God and ourselves to our relationships with others.
Seeking to deepen your relationship with God? Or maybe you’re looking for the perfect gift for Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or for a bridal shower. Reflections on the Names of God will be a gift that keeps on giving!
