Names of God in Psalms 91
A key to understanding the power of Psalms 91 is understanding the importance of the Names of God referenced in Psalms 91. In a previous post, The Lord Has His Say, I go into that in some detail providing these Names used in the first two verses:
- Psalm 91:1 Elyon – Strongest of the Strong, superlative God, Supreme (introduced in Genesis 14:18)
- Psalm 91:1 Shaddai – All Sufficient, All Powerful, Omnipotent (introduced in Genesis 17:1)
- Psalm 91:2 Yahweh or Jehovah – I Am Who Am (introduced in Exodus 3:14-15)
- Psalm 91:2 Elohim – God, the Most High, Supreme Creator (introduced in Genesis 2:4)
“Knowing” God by His Names
In verse 14 of Psalms 91 you learn that “knowing” God’s names carries great benefit. The benefits fill three verses.
The process of “knowing” appears to be one of ongoing discovery. This makes sense since no one has plumbed the depths of God. Exploring and discovering who God is for you based on the four Names in Psalms 91 can keep you engaged the rest of your natural days.
As a start, do read The Lord Has His Say, if you have not already done so. And, enjoy the video at the end of this post. As I soaked it in just a bit ago I was renewed in my resolve to work on a Names of God prayer project.
There is such power in even hearing the Names spoken aloud! There is power in the Name(s)! To a great extent that is where the power of Psalms 91 lies…in the Names.
Video Meditation on Names of God
Take in the video as prayer, as meditation. Watch it more than once. Come back to it later and pray with it again. You will begin to experience a rising up of life and strength in your spirit. There is power here. Do take time to experience it. Gradually you will find yourself in that place of blessing described in the last three verses of Psalms 91.
Peace and blessings! Jeanie R
