Meditate on God’s Name

In my Bible Study group, we are currently studying “Gripped by the Greatness of God” by James MacDonald. The study is split up into seven weeks. In each of those seven weeks are five days of studies. At the beginning of each of those days it asks the reader to “Meditate on God’s Name” with a particular verse. I really enjoy this section of the study, so I’m putting the whole collection up online.

Eventually, I want to look up the Greek/Hebrew origins of each verse and make a chart to hang up at work. I’ll post that chart on my blog here when it’s done.
