Cause His Name to Be Remembered!

"I will cause Your Name to be remembered in all generations; therefore nations will praise You forever and ever." Psalm 45:17
As I have been studying through our book, Praying the Names of God, one of the things a think about is the above verse....we, as the parents, have a command from the LORD to "cause His Name to be remembered" to the next generation...this is a parenting verse. In other scriptures we, as the parents, are told to remember and tell our children what He has done. The names of the LORD that we have been studying this week are Esh Oklah - Consuming Fire, and El Kanna - Jealous God. Two of the important verses in this weeks study are Exodus 34:14 and Deuteronomy 4:23-24. The later verse reads "Be careful not to forget the covenant of the LORD your God that He made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the LORD your God has forbidden. For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God." 
The LORD pursues us BECAUSE HE LOVES US. His consuming fire and jealousy are aspects of His Holy and Righteous love. There is no selfishness in His love...He just wants our hearts, our love, our devotion. He has a righteous zeal for us. Can you imagine how much He loves you. Ask Him to show you and confess any tendency to run away from Him. Ask Him to increase you love for Him and your awareness of His Holiness.
And may we pray that the LORD would pursue our children and loved ones. Let's tell the next generation about His Names and how He reveals himself to us each and everyday. 


  1. AMEN!

    Oh my those are precious photos!

    Love you sweet friend!

  2. Shonni, these photos are so precious! What a cutie!

    Yes, this study is awesome. Knowing who God is and focusing on His names has been such a blessing for me.

    Regarding the Scripture you quoted, yes His name is to be remembered. How thankful I am for godly grandparents who taught me as a child. Even though I rebelled, I returned and only wish they could see me now. I love Jesus more and more.


  3. That little guy of your is as cute as can be!

    The more I praise him, confess my love for him and beg to serve him the happier I am- he fills my soul with such joy!

    Thank you Jesus!

  4. Thanks Shonni
    This is beautifully written & so true!
    My deepest desire is for my children to come to a strong faith in the Lord - may we teach them about Him daily!

    Have a very Happy Mothers Day
