What’s in a name?


Not much. Unless it’s the name of God, the Lord, Yahweh! Then you’re onto something significant. There is authority, power, and protection. The name of God implies so much more than any other name. 

David expressed that several times in Psalm 20.

“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you.” (v.1)


“May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions! (v.5)


“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” (v.7)

David was quite clear about the name of the Lord (Yahweh). From his own personal experience, he was firmly established in his trust. 

What does the name of the Lord mean to you? Look back. Remember every conflict, struggle, failure, and victory. Where have you seen God at work?
