The NAME of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe. – Proverbs 18:10 (NASB) –
Let them praise the NAME of the Lord, For His NAME alone is exalted; His glory is above earth and heaven. – Psalm 148:13 (NASB) –
And those who know Your NAME will put their trust in You,For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You. – Psalm 9:10 (NASB) –
“… the people who know their God will display strength and take action.” – Daniel 11:32b
Hallowed be Your name! – To hallow a thing is to make it holy or to set it apart to be exalted as being worthy of absolute devotion. To hallow the name of God is to regard Him with complete devotion and loving admiration. God’s name is of the utmost importance (Neh 9:5); therefore we ought reserve it a position of grave significance in our minds and hearts. We should never take His name lightly (Exd 20:7; Lev 22:32), but always rejoice in it and think deeply upon its true meaning.

” The names of God are windows through which His character is seen.” – James Montgomery Boice
“We are warranted in using all the various names of God, for each has its own beauty and majesty, and we must reverence each by its holy use as well as by abstaining from taking it in vain.” – Spurgeon
“Ignorance is worst when it amounts to ignorance of God, and knowledge is best when it exercises itself upon the name of God. This most excellent knowledge leads to the most excellent grace of faith. By knowing his name is also meant an experimental acquaintance with the attributes of God, which are anchors to hold the soul from drifting.” – Spurgeon
“Who is among you that fears the Lord, That obeys the voice of His servant, That walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the NAME of the Lord and rely on his God.” – Isaiah 50:10 (NASB) –
“This is eternal life, that they may KNOW You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” – John 17:3 (NASB) –

“Some boast in chariots and some in horses, But we will boast in the NAME of the Lord, our God.” – Psalms 20:7 (NASB) –
A NAME represents a person’s character. …
… God’s name represents His character, His attributes, His nature. To know His NAME is to KNOW Him. To boast in His NAME is to have confidence in who He is!

Psalms 20 (NASB)
1 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the NAME of the God of Jacob set you securely on high!
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary
And support you from Zion!
3 May He remember all your meal offerings
And find your burnt offering acceptable!
4 May He grant you your heart’s desire And fulfill all your counsel!
5 We will sing for joy over your victory,
And in the NAME of our God we will set up our banners.
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.
6 Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.
7 Some boast in chariots and some in horses,
But we will boast in the NAME of the Lord, our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen,
But we have risen and stood upright.
9 Save, O Lord; May the King answer us in the day we call.
