Praying the Names of God: A Daily Guide
Praying the Names of God - June 27
For all of the sudden you have a more complete knowledge of what the author, under the divine inspiration of God, was trying to convey. It is like stumbling upon a treasure in the midst of what you already thought was good and unearthing more than you expected at each turn. It is like finding a well in the midst of a desert, then discovering it is actually a spring that runs eternally deep and will never run dry. I really enjoy that only one Name is explored for the entire week.
This gives the reader time to absorb the meaning - to make it personal and to experience the true character of who God is.
The questions cause the reader to dig deeper and apply the knowledge that has been taught. Absolutely worth the read - more than once! Thank you Zondervan for this review copy.

Also, each week continues on one name, which is fine, just not what I was expecting. I may pick this devotional back up again someday, but would be happier still if I could find another devotional on the names of God that is better-written, Maybe I'm just not a fan of this type of devotional, but I felt it was a bit light in some parts and a bit stretched out in others.

No need to strike out. He believed that the promises God had made were as solid as the rock he stood on. And in the end, God took care of things, punishing Saul but not by David's hand. When David finally became king, he took the throne without having Saul's blood on his hands. We, too, will have our battles, though they may not be as dramatic as David's. Like him, we can respond with humility and trust, defending ourselves without giving in to our desire to retaliate, confident that the God whom David called his Rock—the One who is true to every promise—is the same God who is with us.
