Experiencing God through His Names by Sheryl Giesbrecht

What’s in a name? 

Names are more than groups of letters that represent a person or identify objects. Names are powerful. A person’s character and destiny can be influenced by his or her name. God’s attributes and personality support His unique and distinct names. If we comprehend the meanings of His titles, we can know God more intimately. In Experiencing God Through His Names, Sheryl Giesbrecht walks with you on an exciting journey to discover and absorb the truth about God’s character. In the next 31 days, God wants you to get to know Him. Are you ready?

 Experiencing God Through His Names is a wonderful journey into the beauty and variety of God's names and what can happen we begin to behold the awesome nature of who God is. I love how this book comes with an insightful bookmark that describes the difference aspects of our identity in Christ on one side, with Scriptural references that back up each statement. And then on the other side, it contrasts Satan's lies about our identity with Biblical truths about who God sees when He looks at us. It was such an awesome reminder of who God is and who we really are in Him. The book itself is split into 31 days, and each day explores a different name of God. Sheryl usually begins the day with a short, often personal story that relates to the attribute being discussed. She then describes the name of God and then looks at Scriptures that illustrate the specific name. Finally, she ends with a prayer praising God for his character and what it means to her. Overall, I found this devotional to be moving and convicting as I thought about the different names of God and how that should affect how I view God and my relationship with Him.

I received this book for reviewing purposes from Litfuse Publicity.
