Dear Friends and Followers,
This week’s word art scripture is Psalm 9:10 and we hope that you will take a closer look at it with us. The first words (And they that know thy name) refer to God’s name which, in the Old Testament, was Jehovah. The name of Jehovah was well known among the people of this time as being a watchword of strength and protection. They placed their faith in Him (in Jehovah) because they knew from experience that He would always protect them, and they trusted in His faithfulness and goodness. In the New Testament, we know Jehovah (or God) as Jesus Christ. So as the verse goes on to say, we are told that those who know thy name “will put their trust in thee”. An example of how we “put our trust in thee” would be when we seek His help in times of need, or relief in times of pain or strife. God is always the One we run to when we are troubled and need help because we, like the people then, know the He will lift us up, help and protect us in our times of need. How can we call to Jehovah when we need Him? It’s actually VERY easy. We can speak directly to God by fervently praying (asking of God) and adding to our prayer the good measure of faith and trust we give to our LORD God – Jehovah God in the Old Testament and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. We call on Him because we trust Him. He has proven Himself to be faithful over and over again. What a joy to know that we can humbly come before Him directly – the God of this universe cares about each of us SO MUCH that even though He is perfect and holy, righteous and omnipotent, He allows us to approach Him directly. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful and faithful friend to help us in times of need. How blessed are those who truly KNOW HIS NAME and can call on Him in times of need.
