What’s in a Name?

**Oh Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Who has set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength… When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy  fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him.** Psalm 8:1,2, 3 

Oh, the beautiful name of our God!

He is…..

The Branch, The Good Shepherd, Almighty God, Prince of Peace, Saviour, King of Kings, LORD of Lords, Everlasting Father, The Door, Yahweh, I AM, Jehova, Faithful, The Word… and more! With each name we learn a little more about Him, who He is, what He does and what He is capable of.
