Women At the Well Ministries

A ministry to women who suffer with mental and emotional problems

O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory

above the heavens!

- Psalm 8:1 -


You might think reading the different names of God would be boring, but let me tell you, it is anything but. Remember, there is power in the Word of God and there is power in the name of Jesus.




For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But

water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And

bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return

to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for

which I sent it.

- Isaiah 55:10-11 -


As you search out the names that speak to your heart the most, you will hear that still small voice

whispering to you in a very personal and loving way.


Look up the Scripture(s) for the following names of God. In your own words, describe what the names mean to you. Are there names that are more personal to you than other names? How has that name (or those names) helped you in your walk with the Lord? How can they help you now in your time of rest or need?

4. Alpha and Omega First and Last (Rev. 1:8, 11; 21:6; 22:13)


5. Ancient of Days – In Daniel 7:9, 13, and 22, the picture presented is of an old man who lived for many years. This, of course, is not a literal description of God, but a confession that He lives forever and His kingdom is everlasting. His rule encompasses the expanses of time. He is from everlasting to everlasting (Ps. 90:2)


6. Beginning – (John 1:1; 1 John 1:1; Col. 1:18)

15. Deliverer – To bring into security (2 Sam. 22:1-2; Rom. 11:26)


16. El, ‘el, ale – God – A singular form for deity. This name is frequently combined with other nouns or adjectives. In the crucifixion narrative (Mark 15:34), Jesus employed a form of El when He cried from the cross, Eloi, Eloi (Aramaic for My God, My God), quoting Psalm 22


a. Beth-el, Beyth-’El, bayth-ale’ House of God (Gen. 12:8)

b. El-Berith, [email protected], ber-eeth’ God of the Covenant transforms the Canaanite Baal Berith (Judg. 8:33), a deity of Shechem to show God alone makes and keeps covenants (Judges 9:46)

c. El-Elyon, ‘elyown, el-yone’ The Most High God (Num. 24:16). Melchizedek was the priest of El-Elyon and blessed Abraham in this name (Gen. 14:18-20), referring to El-Elyon as Maker of heaven and earth

d. Elohim, ‘elohiym, el-o-heem’ – A plural form for deity (Gen. 1:1-12, 24-29). A frequently used term and the most comprehensive of the El combinations. The plurality of this word is not a hint of polytheism (many gods). It is a plural of majesty. It is a revelation of the infinite nature of God. In the creation narrative, we read, Then Elohim Said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image’. (Gen. 1:26) This name suggests that there is a mystery to the Creator-God, which humankind cannot fully fathom. God is absolute, infinite Lord over creation and history. In this term the Christian sees a pointer to the Trinitarian (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)

e. El Olam, `owlam, o-lawm’ Everlasting, always; perpetual. Free from the following of one thing after another. Does this mean that time is unreal to God? No. He recognizes a sequence of people or things coming one after the other in time, but all past, present, and future events are equally vivid to Him. (Gen. 21:33; Isa. 40:28; Rom. 16:26)

f. El Roi, ro’iy, ro-ee’God who Sees me or God of Vision (Gen. 16:13). God sees the needs of His people and responds

g. El Shaddai, Shadday, shad-dah’-ee Almighty God. (Gen. 17:1-20, Joel 1:15): Although Exodus 6:3 underlines El-Shaddai as the name revealed to the patriarchs, this term can be found most frequently in the Books of Genesis and Job. God used it to make His Covenant with Abraham (Gen. 17:1-2)

h. Isra-el, Yisra’el, yis-raw-ale’ One Who is ruled by God. A symbolical name of Jacob; also of his posterity, Israel (Gen. 32:38)

31. I AM – God can be whatever or whoever you need Him to be (Ex. 3:14; John 8:58)


32. Immutability – God is unchanging and unchangeable. Genesis 6:6 seems apparent from our viewpoint; God changed His mind or repented. It shows God’s sorrow at humanity, and the grief in His heart. God is speaking in terms that we can understand. He knew all along that this was how things would turn out, but our text tells us loud and clear that as God sees His plan for the ages unfold, it affects Him. (Heb. 13:8; James 1:17)


33. Jehovah (YHWH) – Self-existent or eternal. It is a name of relationship between the True God and His people and, when used, emphasizes God’s holiness, hatred of sin, and love of sinners. (Ex. 6:2; Ps. 83:18; Isa. 12:2)
