"Save, Lord! May the King answer us when we call."
Psalm 20:9 (NKJV)
As I close our study of Psalm 20, let me say once again, I am no Bible scholar. This verse seems a little confusing to me, and commentators have various interpretations, but in my limited understanding I will say this: There is only one king who can always “answer us when we call.” He is not only The Lord who saves, His name is the one great name to which every knee will bow and every tongue will confess, the name that is greater than every other name. Every one of God’s Great Names are fulfilled in just one name : Jesus.
I am so thankful that God has gotten me, and each person reading today, through most of another year. I am humbled that He has helped me share the words He placed on my heart during 2017. When He placed this study of Psalm 20, and the study title, “God’s Great Name” on my heart, I didn’t know all the great things He had in store for me and my family. I didn’t realize how much more I would need to call on His great name in new and exciting journeys. His grace has been ever present and abundant. He has helped me, rescued me, heard, and answered me. Because of Him and His great name, I stand here, victorious in the promise we declared at the beginning of the year. It is with indescribable humility I say thank You: Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Tsidkenu, Jehovah Sabaoth, El Shaddai, and my personal favorite, Jehovah M'kaddesh. Jesus is His name!
I pray that many of you were blessed this year. I would love to hear some of what God has been doing in your lives. Please feel free to share. If you want to talk personally, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although this is our last blog for Psalm 20, please stay tuned as we ramp up again for our end of year prayer project! Stay Tuned!
Victorious In His name,
