A Great Name

"I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." (Genesis 12:2-3 NKJV)

There shall be no more curse ... and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. (Revelation 22:3-4 NKJV)

Abraham did not exalt himself. The Lord made Abraham’s name great, and made his faith great—faith by which he attained righteousness, demonstrated in sacrifice and obedience. All who attain righteousness by faith are called children of Abraham, and we inherit a name which God makes great. It is the name of our own God upon us, our identity now in Him.

In the days when the prophecies of Revelation are fulfilled, there is room for only one name on our foreheads.

YHWH our God, You are merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth. We are undeserving of Your great name upon us. Please conform us to Your likeness.
