Trusting In The Names Of God — A Quiet Time Experience
Online Bible Studies with Catherine Martin
WEEK FIVE — Behold His Beauty With The People Who Lived With God

What is it that can bring the greatest comfort and joy to your heart?

One thing above all others — experiencing God’s presence as you walk with Him, moment by moment, and day by day.

Oh yes, there are so many life experiences that warm the heart. But walking with God and knowing Him is in a league all of its own and completely unmatched by anything else.

I remember the day we drove on the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park in a late Fall, Montana. We had decided to stop along the way to capture views that stood out to us. Well, it’s a miracle we ever made it back to the hotel, because everything is remarkable and magnificent in Glacier National Park, one of my very favorite places in the whole world. I remember this particular stop where the mountains seemed to reach to the sky and the billowing clouds were everywhere. I stood there with my camera and couldn’t help but say, “Lord, Your creation is incredible. And You are awesome. Thank You Lord!”

And so it is with God. Everything is remarkable and magnificent about Him.

In Week Five of Trusting In The Names Of God, we focused on Moses and his relationship with God. Something he prayed to the Lord was significant to me this week. He said —
If You don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place. How will anyone know that You look favorably on me — on me and on Your people — if you don’t go with us? For Your presence among us sets Your people and me apart from all other people on the earth.
Exodus 33:15-16 NLT

This is an important prayer for us to have in our hearts and take to the Lord often. The best part of that prayer came next when Moses prayed, “Show me Your glorious presence” (Exodus 34:18). What a view Moses received from God in answer to that prayer. I believe that God loves it when we dare to draw near and ask to know Him and see Him in great depth. Nothing in all creation compares with a new view of God given by Him through the power of the Holy Spirit. As we come to know God in greater intimacy and depth, our trust in Him will grow.

F.B. Meyer encourages us with the importance of being alone with God often —
We must dare to be alone…Valuable as are the prolific opportunities for Christian culture and service which surround us, they will be disastrous indeed in their effect if they rob us of the time that we should otherwise spend with God, or give us a distaste for lonely heart-fellowship. Let the first moments of the day, when the heart is fresh, be given to God. Never see the face of man till you have seen the King. Dare to be much alone on the Mount.
F.B. Meyer

Those are such good words of encouragement for us as we continue on in this study of the names of God. May we dare to be much alone on the mount with our great God.

As always, I want you to know that my prayer and my goal for all of us is found in Psalm 9:10 —
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, for You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Psalm 9:10

Lord, we pray now that we will know Your names and put our trust in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

God bless you, dear friend, and may you be filled with trust as you discover who God is, what God says, and what God does in His names.

YOUR ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment this next week is to study Week 6, Days 1-6, Behold His Beauty With The Prophets Who Spoke For God. At the end of Week Six, you may also want to enjoy the companion Week Six message for Trusting In The Names Of God (Viewer Guide, pp203-204) — Becoming God’s Message – Digital M4V Video or Becoming God’s Message – Digital MP3 Audio. In our sixth week of study we are going to see how God revealed Himself to some of the great prophets including Isaiah and Jeremiah (two of the largest books of the Bible in the Old Testament). Here we get an intimate view of God’s heart as He speaks a depth and feeling of emotion that we might not have known was a part of who God is. He is, in fact, the living God. And He is passionate and loves His people. So let us draw near to our great God, and know Him and trust Him as never before. I will meet you back here with a new post and discussion question on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

Friends, I invite you into my personal Quiet Time Library, where our video experience will take us from the ancient Hebrew names of God through in-depth Scripture illustrations. When we venture into what Tozer calls the mystery of the Godhead, we are on sacred ground indeed. Your focus will be on Who God is, What God does, and What God says as you explore His revelation of Himself to men and women in the Bible, such as Abraham, Hagar, Job, the prophets, and the disciples in the early church. My goal for you is that you will dig deeper into the Word on trust and its relationship to the names of God. Oh, what views of God’s magnificence and glory await us. Enjoy!
