Beloved, all of us strive hard wanting to be successful, reaching great heights. Today, the Lord says, He is interested in exalting your name.
Many years back, people desired to have the title of Mahatma Gandhi, who practiced non-violence and brought back freedom for India. Later, people loved to be known by the name of the popular cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar. Today, there are many who wanted to become like Isaac Newton and Bill Gates.
From the Scripture, we clearly understand that the Lord had an interest in exalting the man named David. David was a passionate towards God and His word. He says in Psalm 119:8&140, “Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.” “I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.” The Lord saw David and was pleased with Him. He testified: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do’ (Acts 13:22). He also promised to David, saying, “I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have cut off all your enemies from before you. Now I will make your name great, like the names of the greatest men on earth” (2 Samuel 7:9).
Beloved! God says in Exodus 20:24, “Wherever I cause my name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you. God is going to reward you. For He has seen your willingness to do anything and everything for Him. The honor, He is giving you is not for you to just come in power or get your position. But your name will be respected and honored by all. You will be known for love. As the Psalmist says in Psalm 148:13, “Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.” Continue to hold on to the name of God. He will certainly increase you in great number and lavish you with His richest blessings of heaven.
Dear heavenly Father,
You are great and awesome in power who is able to pick anyone from the lowest point of life and exalt them to great heights. Master, as You have promised to bless all those who seek You and trust in You, shower down Your choicest blessings of heaven in my life and extend my territories. This day, I submit my whole being into Your loving hands. Take complete control over everything. Let Your mighty name be exalted forever. In Jesus’ name, I pray,
