Weekly Devotionals for 2009
Weekly Insights into the
Names of God
(Taken from the To Bear HIs Name Study by Sandra J. Mikler Davis)
In January we looked at ADONAI, and saw how Adonai is our Sovereign Ruler and Almighty Master. He is Lord over all!!

In February we saw God’s name, JEHOVAH, and observed that He is Self-existent, Eternal, Righteous, Holy, and YHWH-I AM WHO I AM.

This month we will look at God’s name, ELOHIM.
It is the most common name used of deity in the ancient near east.
“El” holds the meaning of God, god, mighty, strong, Almighty God and majesty.
“El” was the name of the chief Canaanite god of the Old Testament.
Elohim is the plural or compound name for Almighty God, Majesty.
In the Old Testament, this name for God is presented 2,570 times, being the most common Hebrew word translated "God" in the Old Testament.
In the beginning God (Elohim) created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1
Elohim is the God of creation. This is the plural use of “El” (God) and “ohim” (Creator).
In Genesis 1:1-2:4, there is a total of 35 times that Elohim is speaking in the plural sense.
This plural name gives limitlessness to the vastness of our Creator God.
God (Elohim) called the light day, and the darkness He called night.
And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
Genesis 1:5


  • Do I realize that the Great and Awesome, Majestic Creator desires to have a personal relationship with Me?
  • How have I seen the limitlessness of Elohim in my life?
