We lift up the name of Jesus

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the clouds. Yes, clouds! Clouds are so interesting. People see shapes in them. Then can be fluffy and white, grey and gloomy or dark and ominous. They can change gradually or quickly. Thank you for how they can indicate what kind of weather will soon be at hand. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter you love:

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? (Hebrews 1:1-5)

It was said first in Psalms:

Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (Psalm 2:6-7)

It then was said in 1 Chronicles:

13 I will be his father, and he shall be my son: and I will not take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee: (1 Chronicles 17:13)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here to lift up your daughter Lindsey. The scriptures for today are interesting how originally they were referring to Solomon and Saul. However, they are quoted in Hebrews to refer to Jesus! For in the Old Testament the prophets spoke to the people. Now, we see how with the coming of Jesus, HE is the one who speaks to us. And we know that he is still speaking today, even right this minute as we are praying this prayer. It is his name that is most excellent. He took on our sins and died for us, but was raised and now sits at the right hand of the Majesty on high. And it is Jesus that we glorify each day. It is Jesus whose name we lift up. And it is in his name that we pray this prayer. Yes, and all the glory is to him. Glory. Amen.

New Testament (Hebrews 1:1-5 ESV):
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say,

You are my Son,
    today I have begotten you”?

Or again,

I will be to him a father,
    and he shall be to me a son”?

Old Testament (Psalm 2:6-7 ESV):
“As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my holy hill.”

I will tell of the decree:
The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;
    today I have begotten you.

Old Testament (1 Chronicles 17:13 ESV):
13 I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. I will not take my steadfast love from him, as I took it from him who was before you,

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
