The Majestic Name of God

The Majestic Name of God

Psa 9:10 “Those who know your name will trust in you,” [for your name communicates your commitment to constant and complete provision, protection and a place in your Kingdom. Your name, Elohim, means the strong and faithful One, showing your power in creation and your faithfulness in providing salvation.  Your name, Adonai, means the powerful authority who promises complete provision of all we need to live for you. Your name, Yahweh, means the holy One who is utterly independent of your creation, utterly committed to caring for it. You are the hater of sin, judge of evil and lover of your sinful creatures.  You are the great I AM, ever existent, ever powerful, ever present.  You are absolutely, utterly, completely, eternally trustable; to not trust in you is a great sin, denigrating your mighty, majestic, magnificent Names.]

“for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” [The record speaks: you have come to the rescue of all who have called upon you: Adam, Able, Abraham, Moses, the Children of Israel (many, many, times), the Judges, David, Jehosaphat, Hezekiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jesus, the Apostles, Paul–and us.]

Psa 9:11 “Sing praises to the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done.” [You, Lord God, are worthy of praise, worship, exaltation, honor, glory and thanksgiving, for you have redeemed your people, you have rescued your children, you have released your saints from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of Light, the Kingdom of your son whom you love.

In you we are forgiven, cleansed, transformed, adopted, commissioned to special service, equipped to serve you, delighted in, dearly loved and doted on.  You have glorified your name by millions of instances of doing good to your enemies, being gracious to your rebellious children, being kind to all mankind, being holy in the face of evil, being patient in the face of rejection, being purposeful in bringing history to a conclusion.

We must worship you, Lord God,  we must exalt you, we must praise you, for there is no other possible response for those who know your name.  May you be honored in my life today, may obedience flow may praises flow, may trust reign, may glory rise to you each moment, for you are worthy, O triune, glorious, eternal LORD!
