I will declare Your name to My brethren; in the midst of the assembly I will praise You. Psalm 22:22
There are different types of declarations made on a regular basis all over the world. Some become very famously known, such as the Declaration of Independence by the United States, while most remain unheard of. Declarations are just someone making a solid statement about a belief or some truth as being firm and unmoving about it. Most declarations are just for the moment by an individual, while some are made by a group of people that are long lasting and recorded.
David stated that he would declare God’s name to others and in the middle of the people give Him praise.
At the moment a person chooses to make a declaration, that person is believing in something very solidly, with no thought of change or questioning. It is believed to be true beyond any shadow of doubt.
Although the world makes many declarations, it will also commonly make the declaration that truth cannot be fully known or that it is only true for the individual and not the whole. Truth, according to the world, can change according to the needs and desires of the people.
There is only one Truth in this world that never changes no matter what happens, and that Truth is that Jesus is Truth and is the only way to the Father in heaven. Believers in Jesus know this and hold to it.
However, many people in the church are silent about this Truth. They tend to hold to the same belief that the world does and are silent. They are afraid to declare the Truth of God’s name to the world.
Instead of being afraid, believers need to speak up and declare the Truth that the world needs to hear. Declaring that Jesus is Lord and that there is no other.
There are a lot of things in your life that are true, and you are not ashamed of telling others about. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, one of the things you should not be ashamed of or silent about is His name. Be willing and bold to declare His name to those around you. Declare what He has done for you in your life each day. The world needs to hear about Jesus.
What will you declare for the world to hear today?
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know the truth about Jesus; that God will give you boldness to declare His Truth for all the world to hear; and that you will not be ashamed of Jesus among anyone.
