I’m proud to announce my friend Jan Harrison has released her second book, “Becoming a Woman Who Knows God by Name.” This new book is a study of the names of God and why it’s important to know the Lord intimately, by His names and attributes.
Jan’s book covers ten names of God: Elohim, El Shaddai, Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Rophe, Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Roi, El Olam, El Elyon and Adonai.
Jan invites her readers to dig deeper into the meaning of God’s names, examining how each one applies to our relationship with Him. Each chapter corresponds with a biblical character’s story and includes a short study section with summary questions or thoughts and a specific prayer.
One of the passages of the book I think will be especially encouraging to women is the study of Jehovah Jireh and how He has provided everything we need through Christ.
Jan writes, “As long as we are determined to provide for ourselves and self-protect, God can’t provide. Jehovah Jireh isn’t your backup plan, He is your plan.”
“When we finally surrender our dreams and treasures and we trust God to provide, we realize His things are so much better. But first we have to let go. We have to release that stubborn, fearful, human grip on our circumstances and give it all to God.”
Throughout the book, Jan references God’s character and lessons learned not only during heartache and pain but in all seasons of life. She discusses how the Lord met her in some of her darkest personal trials.
Whether you need the Healer Jehovah Rophe, the peace that only Jehovah Shalom offers or the provision of Jehovah Jireh, “Becoming a Woman Who Knows God by Name” is a great reminder of His faithfulness to His people.
“In times of uncertainty, there is absolute certainty when you call on God as Creator (Elohim), Provider (Jehovah Jireh), Healer (Jehovah Rophe), Peace (Jehovah Shalom), Shepherd (Jehovah Roi), and more.”
