Distractions, opinions, fear, frustration and even anger stream through our social media accounts and our news feeds. The country continues the theme of division and strife. When will it all end? Unfortunately, I don’t think we will see this end until Jesus returns. So what do we do in the meantime?
I offer to you that the key to surviving the chaos of society is to focus on God. To lean into Him. To trust that He is the answer that we need. Our Worship Team sang Worthy of Your Name recently in church. This time around the bridge hit me deeply! It is jam-packed with promises of who God is to us. I’ve spent the last few weeks diving into the different titles of God in this song and wanted to share it with you today.
Below I picked out one verse for each name of God. Click here for a printable version. In the printable I have also added additional verses that you can look up and study on your own.

PS: Download this free printable for more verses to look up on your own. Each morning pick a different name of God and look up the Bible verses listed. I encourage you to find others. Look up the Greek or Hebrew meaning of the word using www.biblehub.com. Or study the passage of Scripture surrounding the verse. Then spend some time talking with God. Ask Him how He can be that specific name in your life. Ask Him questions if you are struggling to believe that name is true or not present in your life. Then end your time thanking the Lord that He always keeps His promises.
