Trusting ~ Names Of God AQTE OLS — Intro Week

I’ll never forget the day the Lord gave me my life verse in Psalm 27:4. When I read these words of David, I said to myself and to the Lord, “That’s what I want in life. More than anything. It’s the one thing in life — to know God. To walk with Him and live with Him forever. To gaze at His beauty and worship Him. Every day of my life. That’s my one, great desire.”

In Psalm 27:4 David says, “One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD and to meditate in His temple.”

How is such a life goal possible when we live in a world that clamors for our attention and seems determined to draw us away from God? I believe the secret is found in knowing God’s names. God has revealed Himself to us in His names and, according to David, the secret to trusting God is to know God’s name (Psalm 9:10).

Oh how great are God’s names! I remember a quintessential myPhotoWalk out in Montana’s Glacier National Park at Logan Pass. I walked away from the group and down a steep hill with my tripod and Nikon camera bracing the chilly weather. And I saw what others did not see. This magnificent view of a tall, majestic mountain just took my breath away. I had to take a journey to get to it, but the view was well worth it.

Dear friend, we are now embarking on a great journey in a Ministry For Women — Google+ Community Online Study of Trusting In The Names Of God — A Quiet Time Experience. And your time walking with God in His Word over the next 8 weeks of study will be well rewarded with magnificent views of Him along the way. And the result will be a deeper trust in God.

I am very excited to go on this journey with you. I need to focus on the names of God for my own life. And honestly, I just can’t wait. It is a powerful quiet time experience and we are all going to learn so much. It is the journey to a great trust in God. And the key that unlocks the door is God’s names.

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.

Get ready, dear friend, for your life to 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 spend your first day of study reading the Introduction from Trusting In The Names Of God — A Quiet Time Experience, write your Letter to the Lord, then watch the companion Introduction Week message for Trusting In The Names Of God (Viewer Guide, pp17-18) — Living Life With God – Digital M4V Video or Living Life With God – Digital MP3 Audio. Then, spend the rest of this first week studying Week 1, Days 1-6, A Heart For The Lord.

In our first week of study we are going to look at Psalm 27:4 and David — the man after God’s own heart — and what it really means to have a heart for the Lord. Oh how encouraged we will be to draw near to the Lord and know Him, walk intimately with Him, and ultimately trust Him with all our hearts! I will meet you back here with a new post and discussion question on Saturday, March 18, 2017.

Trusting In The Names Of God: A Quiet Time Experience by Catherine Martin … Individuals, casual groups of friends, church congregations, and even families looking for a meaningful daily devotion will all find this book and its discussion questions a compelling invitation to wholeheartedly seek God and trust in His every name.
DavidJeremiah.org, Online Resource Library, Book Previews
Catherine Martin has produced this piquant, pointed, and challenging subject in two books [A 30-Day Journey & A Quiet Time Experience], both of which will help you in special ways to come closer to your Lord. Both these books intrigued, delighted, and challenged me. I met tried and true ideas with new emphases which drew me into closer communion with God. It is well worth reading both books. They accent the subject differently, building on each other. Individual readers and groups will find these books valuable. Trusting in the Names of God also make a good set of reference books.
Donna Eggett, ChristianBookPreview.com
I highly recommend this book as well as the other one she has compiled on the names of God. This one is unique with the photography & the quotes from so many great theologians & scholars like Tozer & Spurgeon.

[Catherine Martin] is obviously making a deep and lasting spiritual impact on a wide audience of Bible readers and prayer partners throughout the United States and beyond.
