Give to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!
I Chronicles 16:29
It’s nice to hear someone tell you you’ve done something great or that you look awesome better yet that they like your name.
We tend to find ourselves sometimes seeking the praise of other people and maybe even longing for the day when God will tell us “well done, good and faithful servant” but yet maybe we don’t really do the same.
As we look at today’s passage, we see all the many reasons to praise God , for all the things he has done . Our main focus today is on praising and worshiping God for his name.
The name of Lord is not just a mere name but a name that Carries safety, deliverance, healing and power .
We see that Jesus also has been given the name that is above every name that every knee must bow at that name. (Philippians 2:9)
So why do we praise Him for His name? The passage above in verse 8 says call upon His name why ? Because He will answer us .
Praise is the greatest tool that God has given us. Sometimes it may not feel like He is answering or He is there, but sing to Him any way . You could maybe play some praise and worship music or sing to yourself with an instrument or acapella. Rejoice and He will come through for you at the right time.
Today I choose to remember to offer the Lord a song of praise and worship for His name.
God I thank You for Your name , I thank You for the name of Jesus .
Thank You for giving me access to Your name in my moments of despair when I do not know what to do God , help me to call upon Your name
But also in the moments when everything is going okay help me to remember to still praise You and sing and call on Your name. In Jesus name. AMEN
