BLESSED be the Shem of Yahweh FOREVER – 3

Subject: David blesses and praises God’s Shem forever and ever

Psalm 145:1-3

I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will bless Your Name forever and ever.
Everyday I will
bless You.
And I will praise Your Name forever and ever.
Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised.

This is David’s prayer. 
This is what David does everyday in his devotion to God. 
He blesses God’s Name every day.

The Hebrew word for “bless” is בָרַךְ (Barak). 
  • This Hebrew word is related to another Hebrew word for “knee” (berek). 
  • To bless God has to do with worship, kneeling before God, bowing down before God expressing gratitude to Him and to His Name. 

Is this how we do our daily devotions?

David overflows with praises for God and His Name because he experiences Yahweh God like Moses. 
  • The Shem of God is important, for in the Name, Yahweh, God chooses to reveal His Eternal Being and Character to us. 
  • The more we learn to bless and praise the Shem of God, the more we come to personally know God’s character. 

Read through Psalm 145 and learn how David experiences God:

Yahweh is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. (Psa 145:8)

Yahweh is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made. (Psa 145:9)

Yahweh is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all He does. (Psa 145:13b)

Let us also join Moses and David to taste God’s graciousness, compassion, goodness and faithfulness today, everyday and forever.
