An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

The Chosen Name

(Psa 113:3 KJV)  From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised.

(Proverbs 18 also read)

At this point in this Psalm we have seen the phrase “name (8034) of the LORD (3068)” three times and the unique name “LORD” [yhwh] five.  This name is not just another word for God.  It is the name that God Himself revealed to Moses.  Out of all the words and names available He chose the Hebrew YHWH or Yahweh or sometimes translated as Jehovah.

It means “I am” and points out that the God of the Bible is the real one.  He is not just a name, a wish, a compilation or a fantasy.  He is.

So?  It gives us a foundation that we need to keep reminding ourselves of.  Foundations are much bigger than the parts that are visible and are not thought about much.  Foundations are what keep everything else in place.  Worship and rejoice.
