I’m reading verses from 1 Kings 8, where Solomon dedicated the temple to the God. He thanked God for remembering his covenant, and asked Him to remember their prayers when they sinned and repented. This building divinely ordained and designed stood as a reminder of God’s pledge of His presence, provision and his name. The Lord told them I am God, maker of heaven and earth, and my name shall always be there.
That got me thinking about his name being present in all situations and circumstances. With all the wrong in the world, there is comfort in knowing that God’s name; his holy and righteous name is there. There is no other name in heaven or on earth like his. His name brings healing, power, deliverance, and love. My name shall be there. What a wonderful way to start the day; to remember His name shall be there.
