Life Notes for the Week of March 12, 2017
“The Lord Has Done Great Things”
New International Version
The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Psalm 126:3
Ice Breaker: Do you know the meaning of your name? Your children’s names?
God has many names, each one revealing another facet of His amazing character.
By naming himself in these ways he wants us to know and experience Him being these things for us.
Jehovah Jireh- God my provider- Gen. 22
Jehovah Shalom- God of peace- Thess 3:16. Isaiah 9:6
El Roi- The God who sees- Gen. 16:3
Jehovah Nissi- The Lord our Banner (victory in warfare)- Exodus 17:15-16
Yahweh Rapha- God that heals- Exodus 15: 22-26
What other names for God do you know that are significant to you?
How does it change your outlook knowing that God identifies/names himself in these ways?
When we are facing life’s challenges, it’s helpful to ask God
“God, who do you want to be for me in this situation?”
Which one of the names of God would be helpful for you to focus on this week?
Share with each other some of the great things God has done in your life recently.
Spend some time as a group expressing joy and thanking God for who is has been for you in the past. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you in a new way this week.
