Topic: HOW EXCELLENT IS YOUR NAME?
Text : Psalms 8:1,2.
1: O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
2: Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
The root word in the word ‘ excellent ‘ is excel, the writer of our passage today was asking a rhetorical question; O Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth? God’s name excels both in heaven and on earth, he is God over all the universe.
Living things and non living things can hear that name, spirits and human bow to his name, he is God over everything. The deeds of a man brings him glory, no man becomes great without his deeds, the deeds of God bring him glory.
His faithfulness to us is great, he works in an excellent way in our lives, some times his acts and ways are not as we expect but they are more excellent in outcome than we expect, he knows the ending of a thing from the beginning, and that makes him to choose the best of us.
Verse 2 of our passage says, ‘ Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger ‘. The devil is older in age than each one of us, but yet through us God silence him. Through prayers we have cancelled some long standing evil orders in our lives and families, how easy it is to use the name of Jesus to rebuke the devil? so when the Psalmist says, ‘ out of the mouth is babes thou has ordained power and strength ‘, that is what he meant. Anyone who has given his or life to Christ has got power to rebuke the enemy.
God is excellent his dealings with us, he excels over the issues around our lives. As we stay with him, he demonstrates his excellent power in our lives, he always wants to be gloried in our lives, and he does that by doing excellent things in our lives.
Every worshipper of God must understand that God is committed to giving him the best, by excellence the Psalimst meant God excels in all he does, to crown it all, God can’t be questioned for anything he does, he decides who is lifted and who is relegated, but one thing is certain; he is the rewarder of those that diligently seek him, as you seek him with all your heart you can be sure of excellent performance in life. God bless you.
* Lord I thank you for your excellent works in my life.
* Do more excellent things in my life oh Lord.
