The Holy Name of Your Awesome God
The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
Iâ€™ve found there are many people who have names prophetic of what they will do in life. Years ago when I was living in Florida, there was a dentist in our town by the name of Dr. Toothman. In another town, I heard there was a barber by the name of Dan Druff. And I was once told of a man named Will Crumble. His profession? A builder!
Yes, there are some strange and silly names out there. But when it comes to God, He takes His name very seriously. Why? Because Godâ€™s name isnâ€™t an empty or powerless word, but itâ€™s a powerful message of His character â€“ who He is to believers (a loving Father) and who He is to unbelievers (a righteous judge).
So what does it mean to revere the name of God? Weâ€™ll, itâ€™s more than just not using His name as a curse word, though it would include that. Itâ€™s understanding that weâ€™re not to abuse Godâ€™s name by taking it too lightly. We shouldnâ€™t be so casual in our approach toward God that we forget about His power and righteousness.
The Lordâ€™s name is a strong tower, not a grass hut. So in a world thatâ€™s become so flippant about how it talks about God, remember to maintain a healthy reverence for the Lordâ€™s name!
THE LORDâ€™S NAME IS A STRONG TOWER THAT HAS THE POWER TO SAVE. RESPECT GODâ€™S NAME BY REVERING HIS MIGHT AND HOLINESS.

Live with hope in the last days!
The people of the church are the house of God.
We must communicate the right idea of God from the Word of Godâ€¦ no compromises!
If youâ€™re in Christ, youâ€™ll never experience Godâ€™s wrath.
Perhaps youâ€™ve noticed as youâ€™ve looked at the Bible that within its pages, thereâ€™s never once an argument for the existence of God.
