Our Help is in the NAME of the Lord: Psalm 122-124


Our help is in the name of the LORD,
   the Maker of heaven and earth.- Psalm 124:8

Today's passage, Psalm 122-124 heralded several attributes of God. In chapter 122 he is the one who is desired. In  chapter 123 God is the giver of mercy. In chapter 124, God is the deliverer. Verse eight of this chapter caught my eye because of the wording. David does not write that his help is in the Lord, but more specifically, his help is in the NAME of the Lord. It is awesome that with all the myriad of names for our Jehovah, that every attribute of God is wrapped up in the glorified name JESUS. It is in this name that we can know God as Elohim, for all power is given unto Him in earth and heaven. It is in this name that we can know God as provider for he saves us from poverty. Jesus saves us from dis-ease. Jesus saves us from confusion- He is the prince of peace. And the list goes on. Take a look at all the names for God. It is worth going through them all,even if not all in one sitting. Take some time. Meditate on them- and marvel that when we call on the name Jesus, we are tapping into God fully, and not in part.
