The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. (Proverb 18:10)
Sound familiar? How many times have we worshiped Almighty God, with this very Scripture. Think for a moment, what this name engulfs.
Names are descriptive: Caesar, Washington, Columbus and so on, seem to be more descriptive than the John Doe's of this world. Some names seem to carry a depth of meaning that others lack.
Parents sometimes take the longest time to select a name for their unborn child. Perhaps, it is with hopes that the character or what that name represents will rub off on their child. Why even when Solomon was born, Father God reviewed his name; reclaiming the child with this name, Jedediah, "loved of God!"
At the name of "Jesus," every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that he is Lord! Yes, Jesus is the Lord's name! We know he was born in a manger in Bethlehem. Grew up in favor with God and man. Expose the powers of darkness along with man's sin nature. Revealed God's eternal purpose for all mankind through love. His precarious death and resurrection from the dead made this possible. Now, we find Jesus is also a strong tower of safety. Can you imagine all this in one name, Jesus! Praise the Lord!
