David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
Good Morning Yahweh,
What a beautiful morning to be sitting here with You. The world is awake and it’s a joy to listen to the birds sing. I praise You for blessing me with Your nature as I enjoy its beauty. Thank You for this moment.
Father, there are so many times in the day I hear Your name defiled. I hear it used as cuss words, drug through mud and so much more. My heart cringes when I hear others miss use Your name, but I don’t do anything about it. I don’t defend You or ask them not to smear it. I’m not sure exactly what I should do. I have begun to pray for them and ask You to help them realize what they are doing. I don’t want to come off as a goodie two shoes, but what am I supposed to do? Help me and guide my words and actions so others will know that I lift Your name on high.
But, LORD, I also don’t always exalt Your name either. Please forgive me and remind me when I offend You. Please control my tongue so nothing but praise will be spoken. Your Name, my Yahweh, is precious to me, help me to treat it as such.
I love You so very much!
