His name is Power and life. Who is He, some may ask? What power does He have in his name, others may say? Well, whether you believe or not most if not all say these name when they are fearful. “Jesus, please help me, oh God, Jesus Christ or Lord save me.” These are a few of the exclamation they scream when we are fearful of something negative happening to them(us.)
“I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.”
Psalm 17:6 NIV
One of personal experience with His name was when I was single(not married) and my boyfriend at the time asked me to married him. I was excited but also I wanted to be sure I heard God voice to say “yes it’s ok or He’s the one or not the one.” As I was driving to Maryland to visit him and his parents I was praying, “God if he’s not the one I should marry please send me a sign and I need it now!” When the word now left my mouth I ran into or over something and my car started to smoke and immediately got off the next exit. This was in the early 90’s so there was service station. It’s amazing how God can give you answers in a place where you can still be safe or get help. So when I got to the service station one of the employees came out to assist me. It was a shirt. A shirt had wrap around my axle and started burn. I took that as a sign that he was not going to be my husband. I did go see him but we did not marry. Call on His name and He will answer.
How is His name life? Well, in Genesis He spoke “let there be light ” and light appeared and He created man. He is the beginning of life it self. When we call him in our life or in our darkness he changes our situation, which seems like death, into life because of hope. I’ve been following the scripture throughout the Old and the New Testament and I’ve seen how the Israelites faith and worship wavered from God to idol god’s and He always had someone that would bring hope back to their nation.
Even in my life. He has taken me from a family that worship God but didn’t know how to truly live a life that trusted Him when they or we were not strong enough to resist the temptation of those idol gods (alcoholics, smoking, premarital sex, gossip, lies, deception and etc.) But God did not leave us(me) or forsake me. He still directed my path to people and places that His word was living. He fulfilled my desires with His word. He changed my direction and is using me to lead. Not lead alone but lead with Him. My Life is not my own. He is the owner. He has the power and the patent. I thank Him for loving me enough to share His power and His life to do the will of God.
Don’t be afraid doing His will because He said
2Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
