3 Reasons God’s Name Is Blessed

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might.”

– Daniel 2:20

He Controls the Future

Whatever happens didn’t escape God’s attention. There were no, “wow, how’d that happen” because God knows what is to come before it even arrives. King’s might think they reign, but the Bible says differently: “The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD; he turns it wherever he will” (Prov 21:1).

He is Full of Wisdom

Who is like God? Clearly, no one is. God is so full of wisdom that at times, His ways seem the opposite of our ways, but God has revealed some of His ways in His Word, so we can know the ways of God, at least up to a point. The most important things we can know, but the things He has not clearly revealed, we’re better off not trying to guess.

He Reveals the Hidden Things

Daniel also declares that God “reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him” (Dan 2:22). We cannot discover Who Jesus is and why we need Him until the Holy Spirit quickens us. Until the day we enter the kingdom, some things will remain hidden, but the main things are the plain things and they are plainly revealed. All we need to know is in God’s Word (John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Rom 10:9-13, etc.). I believe the hidden things are none of our business. If God would have wanted us to know, it would be in His Word.


A lot of people can get into heated arguments over things that are not clearly revealed in Scripture. It’s too bad, because we should agree on the main things but agree to disagree on the things that are not essential. Either way, God’s name is blessed because He knows the future; He is full of wisdom; and He reveals those things hidden for ages, to those who are His own children. The gospel is the foremost example.
