Your Name & Your Word

I’ve given my word with a handshake and made a contract binding. I’ve since learned in business that this kind of “contract”, while honorable will not hold up in court. If you don’t get it in writing you really don’t have anything that is legally binding and enforceable.  I was blessed by the Psalm of David this morning as he speaks into a generation of people who have been swayed away to other God instead of Jehovah God. Check this out….

 1 Lord, I will thank you with all my heart;
       I will sing to you before the gods.
 2 I will bow down facing your holy Temple,
       and I will thank you for your love and loyalty.
    You have made your name and your word
       greater than anything.
 3 On the day I called to you, you answered me.
       You made me strong and brave.
 4 Lord, let all the kings of the earth praise you
       when they hear the words you speak.
 5 They will sing about what the Lord has done,
       because the Lord’s glory is great.
 6 Though the Lord is supreme,
       he takes care of those who are humble,
       but he stays away from the proud. (Psalm 138:1-6 NCV)

I’m convinced that God’s Name and God’s Word will stand the test of time. They were here long before me and they will be here after I’m gone. I believe His Word is true and the Lord’s Name is worthy to wear, respect and honor.  I will be a Christian no matter where I am and what I’m doing. I will exhibit a strong faith and honorable obedience to the Lord. He is certainly worthy of my humble obedience and my worship of Him.
