Isaiah 48,11 For MY own sake, even for MY own sake will I do it. For how should MY NAME be polluted , and I will not give MY glory to another.
When I seek elsewhere for the things that flow from the names of GOD, I give HIS glory to these other things. It is worshipful to know HIS names and pray for HIM to act according to who HE IS as revealed in HIS NAMES.
