Excellent is Your Name!
“O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth.” Psalm 8:9
Have you ever questioned whether your name affects how you worked things out? Has anyone ever told you that the family name suits you or doesn’t? Although it does not matter what people say anyway, you are created in the image of God to reflect, “I am that I am” However, the idea of names you call God and how you identify him is the prevalent figure at the value of your Being. It is up to you what to call God.
A man can not diminish God’s glory when he calls Him a foolish name, but instead, he becomes foolish when he thinks God does not exist. Psalm 53:1 says, “The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt and vile in their ways; no one does well.” What you call God is what God will use for you. If you call God a good God, he will use it to make you better than any other person. Look at the life of David; he begins and ends this Psalm 8 with a praise to the majesty of God.
“O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! Who have set your glory above the heavens.” Psalm 8:1
It may have been on a beautiful morning or a day when the shepherd boy David greeted the rising sun and exclaimed, “He who shows your sovereignty in heaven!” The proud and rebellious people do not praise God. However, little children look in awe at the beautiful creation of God, and from their lips, praise sounds. As David looked up into the night sky at night, he thought of the infinite vastness of the universe that God had created. Man is just a tiny spot. Why should the great and glorious God take care of him?
We are nothing but meaningless patches in the infinite and vast universe when we exclude God. However, if we acknowledge God as our Creator and Lord, then we realize that he has created us for a mission to be the steward of his universe. He made us for his glory. We cannot deny this fact. God indeed created us for a purpose, and that purpose is to adore him. It does not matter what you are going through now; I encourage you to hold on to Jesus and let us worship God in silent submission. Psalm 46:10-11 says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
- Lord, thank you for remembering me and for making me do your good works.
- I have been called by your name, and I am thankful for all you have done.
- Lord, you are wonderful to me. I am glad that you have given me the name above every name, that in the name of Jesus, every problem will disappear.
