Jerry Bridges, missionary with The Navigators and author of twelve books, including, Trusting God Even Though It Hurts and The Joy of Fearing God, says about 2031 Names of God:

“The Bible uses many names for God, each of them designed to reflect one facet of His glorious character. In this series, Gaylyn Williams has done a remarkable job of identifying and explaining the various names God uses to describe Himself. Meditating on these names, one day at a time, will help us to know God more intimately. This series will prove useful in enriching one’s daily quiet time.”

The Faithful Holy One

Judah is unruly against God,
    even against the faithful Holy One.

Hosea 11:12 NIV

Excerpted  from 2031 Names of God: Transform Your Life as You Get to Know God in New Ways

I don’t know about you, but I don’t ever want God to say this about me. How about you? What might you need to do so that God can never say that about you?

Meditate on this name today.

Twenty-seven years ago yesterday, my son Daniel entered Heaven. I wonder what he is doing today. I wonder if he found my dad.

God’s Name: My Faithful God

Excerpted  from The Surprising Joy of Exploring God’s Heart: A Daily Adventure with 365 of His Names

Into your hands I commit my spirit; deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.

Psalm 31:5

Steps on Your Journey to Know God More Intimately:

  • When Jesus was hanging on the cross, He quoted part of this verse in Luke 23:46: “Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.’”
  • The Hebrew word for faithful is emeth and means certainty, truth, trustworthiness, establishment, faithful, right, sure and true. Some versions translate this name as “The God of Truth.” El is the singular for Elohim.
  • Merriam-Webster* defines faithful as, “steadfast in affection or allegiance; firm in adherence to promises or in observance of duty; given with strong assurance; true to the facts, to a standard or to an original.” Think about these definitions. What does it mean to you that God is your faithful God?
  • I have seen God’s faithfulness in my life so many times. One example is in how He has provided for all of my needs, sometimes in a miraculous way. As a young single mom, I was so poor that I was turned down for the indigent health care. Why? Because I didn’t make enough money. That is a true story! However, even though many months I didn’t have enough to pay my bills, yet I always paid them—from my own checkbook. I can’t explain it, except for God’s faithfulness. He is faithful to you too.
  • Because He is faithful, we can depend on Him for anything and everything. Often we can’t depend on people to remain faithful to us, but we can stake our lives on the fact that God won’t ever change.

A Prayer for You:

Thank You, My Faithful God, for always being faithful to me. I praise You that You are trustworthy, truthful and dependable. Teach me to trust You more and rely on You for every area of my life.

Blessings on you as you get to know God,

The Beginning and the EndCover for 2031 Names of God

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Revelation 22:13 NIV

Excerpted  from 2031 Names of God: Transform Your Life as You Get to Know God in New Ways

Happy New Year!

Meditate on this name. Ask the Lord to reveal what He wants you to see from it today. What does it mean to you that God is the beginning and the end? I’m so glad I can depend on Him.

As you are ending one year and getting ready for a new year, take some time to talk to the Lord about both. Is there anything that you want to change in the new year. God will help you, if you ask Him and trust Him. That is so much better than making a New Year’s Resolution.

Blessings on you as you get to know God,
