12 Magnificent Reasons To Study Gods Names

12 Reasons To Study God’s Names is an article I wrote to illustrate to you, my dear reader that our God is truly magnificent in all of His glory and majesty!

When studying God’s Names, I always realize anew how unique God is, there is no other like Him, who can be all the wonderful names and attributes at once. 

The extent of God’s Names is so much bigger and more worthy than our human minds can comprehend. 

The Names of God and the Trinity, represent His pure, undefiled character. 

God is who His Names say He is, helping us to understand that the Name of Jesus is above every other Name.

May you clearly hear the voice of the Holy Spirit ministering to you while reading this article.

12 Magnificent Reasons To Study God’s Names

1. Everyone will witness God’s Name on us

“Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you.”

Deuteronomy 28:10

We will enjoy all the blessings of Deuteronomy 28 when we live a life that pleases God.  Our lives will reflect God and everyone will see that we are called by the Name of the Lord, that we are His own people.

2. God will do good things for us

“I will praise You forever,  Because You have done it;  And in the presence of Your saints  I will wait on Your name, for it is good.” 

Psalm 52:9

We know we can rely on God, trust in Him, and wait for Him.  The miracles He did in the past He will do again, and even bigger.  God is good, and His Name is worthy to be praised.

3. God will defend us

“But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;  Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;  Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You. 

Psalm 5:11

Trust is when we rely on God, knowing how dependant we are on Him, knowing how insignificant we as humans are. We will shout for joy because God defends those who love His Name.  

4. We will experience being more content

“Yes, in the way of Your judgments,  O Lord, we have waited for You;  The desire of our soul is for Your name  And for the remembrance of You.”

Isaiah 26:8

The Lord’s judgments talk about God’s laws and statutes, but can also be our trials and afflictions.  Whatever it may be, the people waited for God and their soul’s desire is for His Name and His legacy.  Their desire is for God to deliver them and to display His friendship toward them. When we wait on God and He is the desire for our souls, we will be more content.

5. We will experience increased wisdom

“The Lord’s voice cries to the city—Wisdom shall see Your name:  Hear the rod!  Who has appointed it?” 

Micah 6:9

In this verse, God is speaking Himself telling the people in Jerusalem, that those who heed His Name and obey, will have wisdom.  They are not only hearers, but profit by what they hear, and with spiritual ears will hear God’s rod.  When we know God, we will have increased wisdom, will listen to God, and be obedient to Him.

6. We will experience God’s divine intervention

“Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” 

Psalm 124:8

God is our help, His Name is the foundation for our dependence on Him in our trials and tribulations.  God has made heaven and earth, and everything that exists.  When we know God, we will know we have help in His Name, and He will show Himself strong on our behalf.

7. We will experience God’s divine protection

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower;  The righteous run to it and are safe.”

Proverbs 18:10

God’s Name is a strong tower, like a place of safety, we can run to it and are safe.  When we live righteous lives, we have the assurance that on the day of trouble God’s Name will be a strong tower where we will receive His divine protection.

8. We will receive God’s forgiveness

“For Your name’s sake, O Lord,  Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.”

Psalm 25:11

David was a man who cherished a deep love and reverence for God, in His devotion to God, David knew he was a sinner and needed God’s pardon.  When we confess our sins before God, we will receive His forgiveness and His Name will be glorified.

9. We will experience more vigor

“Inasmuch as there is none like You, O Lord  (You are great, and Your name is great in might)” 

Jeremiah 10:6

There is no other god like the Lord God, Almighty!  His general nature is of being more than able to help and save us in any situation.  When we are true to Him, trust Him and wait on Him, He will be dedicated to us.  Just like God’s Name, He is overflowing in power and might.  When we have an intimate relationship with Him and trust Him, we will praise Him naturally knowing how mighty He is, and experience more vigor.

10. We will experience our worship intensify

“O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name; and let Your servant prosper this day, I pray, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man.”

Nehemiah 1:11

In this beautiful prayer, Nehemiah is praying for the king and His servants who desire to fear His Name.  When we have a deep longing for God and spend time giving Him glory and honor, we will have a natural desire to fear His Name while our worship intensifies.  God will let us prosper and grant us mercy.

11. We will experience victory

“Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” 

1 Samuel 17:45

David expressed his complete trust in God when He spoke these words to the Philistine.  He expressed his disregard for the Philistine’s weapons knowing that his God is a Mighty Warrior and more than able to give him victory over the giant.  When we completely trust God with an undivided heart, calling on His Name, He will give us victory over our enemies.

12. We will receive salvation.

“For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 

Romans 10:13

When we humbly call on God’s Name, knowing we are sinners and need forgiveness, God will grant it to us and we will be saved. When we are saved, God’s Name will be glorified in all the heaven and earth.
