from the Names of God reading plan

BY She Reads Truth

In this Names of God reading plan, we are learning more about God by studying the names given to Him in Scripture. Rather than having our writers share their own reflections on these passages, we’ve instead provided research-rich content to aid in your study of each day’s featured name of God, including the background of the name(s), a brief explanation of the character of God emphasized by the name(s), and a reflection question to help you dig deeper into the text.


Ruach (Hebrew), Pneuma (Greek)

Scripture Reading: Numbers 11:24-30, Psalm 51:10-13, John 4:19-24, John 14:15-26, Acts 2:1-4, Acts 10:44-48

The Old Testament contains many references to ruach, the Spirit of the Lord, which was the manifestation of God’s presence on earth. The New Testament uses pneuma for the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity.

In John 4, Jesus tells the woman at the well that God is spirit. He was referring to the time, which has now come, when the Spirit of the Lord would no longer reside in temples built by human hands. Instead, the Holy Spirit dwells inside those who believe in Jesus.

The non-incarnate, or non-physical, presence of God on earth

What does this name teach me about God?

    It’s amazing that Gods Spirit dwells within our spirit when we’re born again! What a treasure! The living spirit of God. I ask today for a greater capacity to receive and have the Holy Spirit flowing in and through me. Thank you God for transforming me and for flowing through me to transform those around me and draw them to you.

    I love that part of the work of the Holy Spirit is to remind us of what God’s Word says. It is not necessarily our ability to memorize scripture, but the Holy Spirit knows what scripture to bring to our mind in every situation. As followers of Christ, there is no where we can go without the Spirit going with us!
