Daddy’s Lap

Proverbs 18:10 reads:

The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.

Names. Everybody’s got one. We either like what our parents named us, or we wish that we could change our name to something else…and some do! Onomatology is the study of names. Do you know what your name means? Mine (Brent) is from a Celtic word meaning ‘from the hill.’ Now, maybe I tend to read into things like this a little too much, but a couple questions come to mind. First, what ‘hill’ is being referred to? And second, what was the first Brent doing on that hill? See…random thoughts.

For those of us who believe in God and have given our lives over to Him, the scripture passage above offers tremendous hope and security. What’s in a name? Simply put…the name of God is our home base…our safe zone…our Daddy’s lap. Additionally, when we take a look at all of God’s names in the Bible it quickly becomes apparent that He is much more than that. He really is our everything.
So for this week, may you find safety, rest, and comfort sitting on the knee of your Heavenly Father. May you also feel His strong, loving arms embrace you as your child-like grin touches His heart.
