Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven. He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his faithful, for the people of Israel who are close to him. Praise the Lord!
The prophetic promises of God would result in great praise. Putting this in reference to the coming of the Messiah, the great name of the Lord was and is exalted. Jesus’ name is praised and lifted up because of his incredible work. God’s glory is reflected in the work of his son, Jesus. The glory of God is greater than anything that has been created, for he is above creation.
God’s people have been in need of his strength (horn). Jesus is the one who provides the strength for every day of life. God is faithful in providing all that is needed for those who serve the son, Jesus. The people of Israel were welcomed to draw near to Jesus, the Messiah. Those who did saw their lives transformed. It became a time to praise.
