A Moment with Our Creator: Psalm 9:10

Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You.

Psalm 9:10

The scriptures show us that God’s name has incredible depth. My blogging friend Alan at Devotional Treasures highlights this in a a series of posts on the names of God which I’ve included below. I hope you select one or more to read. My personal favorite is Jehovah Jireh because it was the first name of God I learned as a little girl through a scripture song we regularly sang in church.

Jehovah Shammah- The Lord is There

Jehovah Jireh (The Lord will Provide)

Jehovah Shalom- The Lord is our Peace

Jehovah Nissi- The Lord is My Banner

Jehovah Rapha- The Lord Your Healer

Jehovah Sabaoth- The Lord of Hosts

Jehovah Raah/Rohi- The Lord is My Shepherd

Jehovah Tsidkenu- The Lord Our Righteousness

Jehovah Mekoddishkem- The Lord who Sanctifies You

  1. Great Post
    The names of God have significant meaning in the scriptures, with each name revealing a different aspect of God’s character and nature. Devotional Treasures has highlighted some of these names in a series of posts, including Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Shammah, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah Sabaoth, Jehovah Raah/Rohi, and Jehovah Tsidkenu. Each of these names holds a special meaning, such as Jehovah Jireh meaning The Lord will provide and Jehovah Shalom meaning The Lord is our peace. These names can provide comfort and reassurance to those who trust in God and seek Him. Psalm 9:10 states that those who know God’s name will trust in Him, as He has never forsaken those who seek Him. The depth of God’s name highlights the depth of His character and love for His people.

    1. Thank you! My hometown is filled with these wonderful conservancies where we like to go hiking. This one is a meadow conservancy. In the late summer and early fall the tall grasses are accompanied by milkweed and various types of sunflowers. It transforms into a butterfly’s paradise.

    I didn’t realize there are so many different names for our Lord. Seeing and recognizing how well those names reveal His love, faithfulness, and trustworthiness bring hope and assurance. Thank you, Beth.

    1. You are welcome Alan! I’m so glad that this scripture opened an opportunity to share your series with my readers. You have such a radiant, humble heart for the Lord that I know each person who reads your devotionals will encounter Him. May the Lord continue to bless your writing.

  4. Wonderful post! I especially loved the essay on “The Lord is my Shepherd’. I love the way it was presented that each day the Lord ‘clears the path for us before we begin our day.’ It does make each day an adventure…one where God goes ahead of us, leading our every step.

  5. Alan’s writings are excellent, and I concur with Beth’s recommendation of his series. He is passionate in his love for the Lord Jesus Christ and desires to point all readers to the grace of God that sets us free from the bondage of sin.

    To learn more about the name of God, I suggest checking an in-depth Bible study titled “The Hidden Name of God” by Gina Cash of the blog “On Scripture.”

    Gina reveals how Christians use misnomers as God’s name, but few are taught or know His name. We refer to important titles, roles, and character traits as names, but they’re not God’s names. My children call me “Mom,” but that’s not my name. Likewise, Lord is a title for God, and King is the title defining the role of Charles III, King of the UK. Shepherd, healer, provider, and such define God’s character traits and roles but are not His name.


    God bless all who seek to know Him!

  6. “Jeohvah Jirah, God will provide” is the line to a sing I learned as a child

    Our church went through a phase (that I’m glad didn’t last too long) of singing Jewish style music

    I loved a messianic Jewish group that came to sing at ou church. And That was superb…but, as English christans, we didn’t do much honour to their way of singing lol

    But the words we’re good!!

    That memory popped into my head, so thought I’d share it 🙂

    1. Thank you for sharing that memory Andy! I’m thinking that it may have been the same song, as the tune I remember definitely had a Jewish style to it. I’m amazed at how many of those scripture songs from my childhood have stuck with me through the years. I hope you and your family continue to feel better with each passing day. The Berry Bunch has been part of our morning prayers this week.

      1. We might just all be well by the start of our holiday!!!

        Jo’s cough has lessened to almost nothing, as has Steven’s.

        Nathan and Peter are well, and growing stronger again each day.

        My voice is still pretty awful, but I don’t feel all that ill, and I’m recovering with as much rest as I can manage.

        I should be back on air tomorrow morning….. penultimate time on the radio for a few weeks, if my voice behaves…just need one hour tomorrow, and then our own show for Sunday – but I can hide behind the other four of my family 🙂

        Yes some of those songs stuck in your head, and it may well be the same one.

        As a worship leader ove 3 years I’m always equally surprised by songs that churches all seem to know, as well as ones that surprise me they don’t lol

        We’re very grateful for your prayers!!!! They’re more precious than gold.

        How is your family?

      2. I’m so glad to hear you are all on the mend! Truly an answer to prayer. My family is doing well. We are coming into the homestretch of school before the quarter ends and can enjoy a hearty spring break in March.

    1. Thank you Pastor Pete. This means a lot. As the photographer, I’ve stood in the place the picture has been taken and know why the picture resonates with the scripture. That said, I’m not always sure if others can see that connection as well.
