What do you call your God


I was listening to CeCe Winans (Alabaster Box) this morning, and as she was calling out the names of what God means to her, it got me thinking.

Our God is truly awesome! We call upon Him in every single situation we can think of and He answers and is always there to save us! During our daily walk, we have and will call Him different names, such as Saviour, Provider, Peace giver or Healer!! But guess what? He has and continue to answer to each and every one of those names! Isn't that amazing?


I started to reflect on my life and realised that whilst going through and spending time in variouis trenches, hills and valleys and all sorts of vast wilderness, even lush gardens; I have called God so many different names! But the amazing thing is that He answered to each and every name I gave Him, and He became that name to me, during that time that I needed Him to be! He truly is the answer to each and every one of our prayers, if we only just call upon hinm!!!
To God be the glory!!!

This is part of the reasons why;
I will love Him Forever,
I will sing of His praises forever,
I will always declare that He is God.
The perfect one... the
"I AM"

The one who reigns forever!!!

It's safe to say that whatever season in life we are in, we should be rest assured that whatever we need God to be for us in that season, He will be, we just have to call upon Him.

So beautiful peopple, "what are the favorite names you call or have called God in those times of need, satisfaction or just reflecting and praising His name?"

To Know God
To know God is to...
experience perfect stillness
surrounded by deep rooted excitement and expectation
To know God is to
experience Love personified
Afterall, our names are written
on the palm, of His right hand!
To know God is
to realise that absolute completeness and peace
can only be found in Him
That in a gift in itself indeed

To know God, is simply tobe complete in Him

That was beautiful...

I call God "Jehovah Jireh," because I remember that so many many many times, He's rescued me by providing those things I need...

I love calling God my "Strong Tower," I imagine Him as a Tall Strong Tower that i can run into for protection from all the nonsensities of life. When my life doesn't make sense, I still have God as my wall of protection all around, it gives my life a new meaning.

I call God, "the Uncreated Creator,"...I just love calling Him that, it puts Him in a category all by Himself...lol. Can create, but cannot be created. Cool!

I call God so many exciting Names, and when I'm calling them out one by one it excites me too...

Thanks for this beautiful post...
