The many names and titles given to God in the Bible, hold a revelation of who He is; His person and character. Through this we become aware of His purposes toward us. The names and titles serve as a discernment for communication to a better fellowship with Him. For instance, the name Jehovah-Jireh serves more than a label. In this name God reveals Himself to us as our provider.

 

During Biblical times in most cases, the names given indicated faith and hope or the expectation of the individual that is named. So then, with God, we know He is Almighty, which is translated in the Hebrew Language as El-Shaddai. In times of infirmities, we know He is Jehovah-Rophe, our healer. During the time of perplexity in an uncertain world, the believer shall say the Lord is my Shepherd - Jehovah-Rohi. In darkness, He is my light, Jehovah-'Ori. Even in our idiosyncrasy, we know God is El-Kanna, which is translated in the English as Jealous. However, the jealousy spoken of here is not the same as envy or the strong desire of things that belong to others.  Rather the jealousy here, when apply to God, it has the sense of intense love and commitment toward us. For we know He is Jehovah-Go'el, our Redeemer.
