My brother shared a story with me the other day and I feel compelled to share with you all. I only have it in picture form because I received it as a PDF.
This is a wonderful reminder that when we feel burdened or tired or in danger or in any situation we feel uncomfortable, we need to call on the Name of Jesus! He is our Refuge and our Strength! He alone can save us. There is Power in The Name of Jesus! His name is above all names …
9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
This is the picture of the story. If you click the picture it should enlarge enough so you can read it. I am sorry this is all I have for now. I just didn’t have time to re-type the entire story and it was too good not to share with everyone.
The following is an excerpt from a previous post and it talks about the wonderful names of God… just to mention a few. Enjoy.
I love the names of God that describe His magnificent characteristics. God is so wonderfully multifaceted that He has many names that communicate His capabilities and character. To name just a few, He is:
Elohim, the God above all gods
Jehovah Jireh, the God who provides
Jehovah Rapha, our healer God
Jehovah Shalom, our God of peace
Jehovah Shamma, our God who is present
Jehovah Yahweh, our loving, covenant-keeping God
It’s no wonder the writer of Proverbs encourages us to remember that “the name of the Lord is a strong tower,” that in times of need God-fearing people run to it and “are safe” (Prov. 18:10). When unwelcome circumstances threaten you and you feel vulnerable, reflect on one of God’s names. Be assured—He will be faithful to His name.”
One of my personal favorites is Redeemer. I have a post named this and I love the idea that Jesus is my Redeemer and Friend. Another is Lion of Judah!
Also, there are prophecies that Jesus fulfilled. See this article for that information: Prophecies Jesus Fulfilled – 44 Prophecies of the Messiah Fulfilled in Jesus Christ
You know, I have heard it said that there is nothing people like to hear more than their own name. Human nature tends to be a bit selfish sometimes and I believe that is true about most everyone. However, if you are a Christ follower, you know the name that is the sweetest name than any name here on earth! The name that is above all names. You know this scripture…
“9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”
The song I have chosen to add to this post is one of my favorite songs (this one is sung by Kari Jobe). It is a song that we used to sing at First Euless – my previous church. Sarah, the Worship Assistant, used to sing it and the choir and congregation would join in. It was beautiful when the entire congregation sang it because it centered around the name of Jesus.Have you called on His The name of Jesus lately? He is there… waiting for you as your trusted Friend. Remember you are His beloved! Call on His name today, if for nothing else but just to say Thank You Jesus!
