Exploring 7 Names of God: A Bible Study
The Bible is filled with numerous names and titles for God, each revealing different aspects of His nature and character. Among the many names, 7 stand out as significant representations of God’s attributes and His relationship with humanity. In this Bible study, we will delve into these 7 names of God and uncover their meanings and implications for our lives.
1. Jehovah Jireh
The name Jehovah Jireh means “The Lord Will Provide.” This name was given by Abraham when God provided a ram as a substitute sacrifice instead of his son Isaac. It serves as a reminder that God is our ultimate provider. He meets our needs, both physical and spiritual, often in unexpected ways. As we study this name, we learn to trust in God’s faithfulness and His perfect timing.

2. Jehovah Roi
Jehovah Roi translates to “The Lord Is My Shepherd.” This name paints a beautiful picture of God as a caring and protective shepherd who guides, leads, and provides for His flock. Just as a shepherd knows his sheep intimately, God knows and cares for each one of us individually. Through this name, we can find comfort, security, and guidance, knowing that we are in His loving hands.
3. Jehovah Rapha
Jehovah Rapha means “The Lord Who Heals.” This name reveals God as our divine healer, both physically and spiritually. It signifies God’s power to restore and bring wholeness to our brokenness. As we study Jehovah Rapha, we recognise that God is not only capable of healing our physical ailments but also mending our wounded hearts and souls. Through Him, we find comfort, restoration, and the assurance of His loving care.
4. Jehovah Nissi
Jehovah Nissi translates to “The Lord Is My Banner.” This name reminds us that God is our victorious and conquering banner. In the Old Testament, a banner was a symbol of identity and unity for an army. In our lives, Jehovah Nissi represents God’s presence in our battles and His power to lead us to victory. As we study this name, we gain confidence in God’s ability to fight our battles and overcome the challenges we face.
5. Jehovah Shalom
Jehovah Shalom means “The Lord Is Peace.” This name emphasises God’s role as the source of true peace in our lives. It goes beyond the absence of conflict and turmoil, offering a deep sense of inner tranquility that transcends any circumstance. Through Jehovah Shalom, we discover that true peace is found in a relationship with God and trusting in His sovereignty, even in the midst of chaos and uncertainty.
6. Jehovah Shabaoth
Jehovah Sabaoth translates to “The Lord of Hosts” or “The Lord of Armies.” This name emphasizes God’s authority, power, and sovereignty over all creation. It reveals Him as the supreme ruler of the heavens and the earth, with angelic armies at His command. As we study Jehovah Sabaoth, we gain a deeper understanding of God’s strength, protection, and the assurance that He fights on our behalf. It encourages us to place our trust in Him, knowing that He is in control.
7. Jehovah Tsidkenu
Jehovah Tsidkenu means “The Lord Our Righteousness.” This name highlights God’s perfect righteousness and His ability to impute His righteousness to us through faith. In ourselves, we fall short of God’s standards, but through Jesus Christ, we can be made righteous before God. Studying Jehovah Tsidkenu helps us to recognize our need for His righteousness and the transformational power of His grace in our lives.
Exploring the 7 names of God—Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Roi, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Sabaoth, and Jehovah Tsidkenu—has allowed us to uncover different facets of God’s nature and His relationship with humanity. These names reveal His provision, guidance, healing, victory, peace, sovereignty, and righteousness.
Through this Mini Bible Study, we have learned that God is not distant or aloof but intimately involved in every aspect of our lives. He meets our needs, protects and guides us, brings healing and restoration, fights our battles, offers us peace in the midst of chaos, and imputes His righteousness to us through Jesus Christ.
As we study and meditate on these names, our faith is deepened, and our trust in God grows. We come to realise that no matter what challenges we face, we can rely on Him completely. His names remind us that He is faithful, loving, powerful, and ever-present.
By incorporating these names into our prayers and worship, we can experience a deeper connection with God and a greater understanding of who He is. We can find comfort and strength in knowing that we serve a God who sees, provides, guides, heals, protects, brings peace, and declares us righteous.
May our study of these names inspire us to live in a way that reflects the nature of our incredible God. May we trust in His provision, follow His guidance, seek His healing, claim His victory, rest in His peace, submit to His sovereignty, and embrace His righteousness.
As we journey through life, let us remember the significance of these seven names of God and the profound impact they can have on our faith and relationship with Him. Let us continue to explore the depths of His character and draw closer to Him each day.
