Alphabet Praise

I lead a women's bible study on Thursday nights and last week I asked the ladies to take each letter of the alphabet and write down an attribute or name of God that reflects their view of who God is to them. Over the next few weeks I am going to share these with you. This week we have letters A-G. I hope you will meditate over these names and how they reflect who He is to you. I would love to hear from you and who God is to you. Add a comment or send an email to alignwithhim@gmail.com.

A

Abba-our daddy Romans 8:15
"For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by Him we cry, 'Abba, Father'."

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it."

Beautiful-Psalms 27:4

Counselor-Psalm 119:24
"Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors."As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.

"Carrying His own cross, He went out to the place of the skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgatha). Here they crucified Him, and with Him two others-one on each side and Jesus in the middle."

"And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven."

G

Gift-2 Corinthians 9:15

"Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!"
