Praise to the LORD

“‘I am the LORD, that is MY NAME; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images.’” 

Isaiah 42:8

There are occasions when God announces, “This is my name. This is who I am.” Such is the case in Isaiah 42:8, when God announced, “I am the LORD, that is MY NAME.” In the same breath, He explains what it means that His name is LORD. It means He will not give His glory to another. It means that our praise is to be given to Him and Him alone. His pronouncement should cause us to ponder, “Have I given my praise to anything or anyone besides the LORD?” If so, we must hurriedly bow before the LORD in repentance; and then praise the LORD.

Heavenly Father, You alone are LORD. Forgive me for putting other things and other people before You. I bow in humble reverence and praise!
