Know God, Trust God, Seek God

The more we know God's Name/God's character, the more we will trust Him. His Name is Yahweh (The Lord, I Am). He is the only one, true, living God who is all we ever need. In the Bible, names are very important. They often reflect the characteristic attributes or background about the persons. Even more so, God reveals His character/His nature by referring to Himself by different Names. He wants us to know and understand Who He is, what He does, and how we should relate to Him. Knowing the names and attributes of God helps us face any problems in life with hope and confidence. If you want to know God more and understand His heart better, I encourage you to study and reflect on the names of God. It will enrich your understanding of Who God is, will strengthen your faith in Him, and will deepen your relationship with Him. As a result, it will be easier for you to trust Him and rely on Him. The more we know the Lord, the more confidence we will have in His Word, His promises, and His faithfulness. We can always trust God because we know that He is completely and consistently trustworthy, faithful, and loving. "'Because he loves Me,' says the Lord, 'I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My Name. He will call on Me, and I will answer him.; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.'" (Psalm 91:14-15)

God has never forsaken/abandoned those who seek Him and He never will. God is always present with us even when we don't feel His presence. "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you." (Deuteronomy 31:6) Whenever God's Word says, "Do not be afraid", it often includes the promise of God's presence ("...For I am with you"). Such a caring & comforting promise! "Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always." (Psalm 105:4)
