“Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names,” Philippians 2:9 (NLT)
Jesus, the name above all names. It is a name I cling to. In many times through these years I have whispered His name, I have screamed His name, I have sung about His name. In His name, I have peace deep within me.
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” Psalm 34:18 (NLT)
Days and nights when I was alone and lonely, His name is the name I called upon. When times came where I felt it was the end of my life as I knew it, He was there. Bringing comfort and assurance that things would be okay.
“And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20b (NLT)
Knowing this truth, I can face whatever is in front of me. For I know that no matter the situation or circumstance my God is with me. He will not forsake me.
During this time of preparation for Christmas, it is good to remember and recall the times that the Name above All Names is with us. This is Who the angels declared to the shepherds, the birth of the most glorious Savior.
