JESUS Name Above All Names!

JESUS! What a powerful, precious name to be on our lips and in our hearts. There is something about just speaking that name in all of our circumstances and wherever we are. There is power in the name of Jesus!

God Himself gave Jesus His name. His name holds power, grace, love, redemption, healing, deliverance and much more.

“…God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)

As we speak the name of Jesus, our thoughts and attention are drawn away from all the turmoil around us and we are able to focus on the One who can calm the storm…and has given us the authority and power to calm the storm in His name!

Oh my friends! Do you carry the name of Jesus? Do you carry His presence? Are you walking as an ambassador of Christ?

Vision: I see a huge rubber stamp like one that is used to stamp a signature onto a letter or official document. I see the name of JESUS being stamped upon me! And dear friends the name of Jesus is upon you if you have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior.

Prayer: Dearest Jesus, thank You for calling me Your own! Thank You for placing Your name upon me and inviting me to walk this journey with You! Amen!

VISION

…for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.

(1 Samuel 16:7)

We must be careful to not take people and circumstances at “face value”. What we see with our fleshly eyes is not necessarily what the LORD sees!

LORD, may we have Your eyes and Your Vision that we may see things as they really are.

May You continue to improve my Vision, Lord!! May You align my vision to YOUR Vision. I not only want to HEAR You, but I want to SEE with Your eyes! I want to FEEL what You feel! I want to SPEAK Your Word! Mold and shape me, Lord, into a vessel that is filled to overflowing with Your LOVE!! In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. AMEN!

Turn On The Light!

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

How bright is our path that we are walking in life? Are we allowing God’s Word to illuminate our thoughts and our vision and our speech?

We need to “turn on the light” by reading God’s Word every day and by inviting Him to walk our daily path with us.

God bless you in the journey!

Weightlifters of the Lord

This morning as I was writing another post on my Facebook page, I began to have such a sense of a “building up” in the atmosphere! Brothers & Sisters! God is moving…God is strengthening His people for what’s coming! We ARE the body of Christ!

[vision]. I see a weightlifter 🏋️. The Lord is strengthening us to lift and carry the “weight” of His glory and presence into all the world! We are in “training!” We have our own “personal Trainer!” Lean in and listen and obey the voice of the Lord!!

IT’S TIME!!

God’s Eyes

“The problem is, many of the people in need of saving are in churches, and at least part of what they need saving from is the idea that God sees the world the same way they do.” – Barbara Brown Taylor

As I read this a few days ago, I knew that it was true. We often forget that our human perspective is different from God’s. It is difficult for us to look beyond the surface.

What we see physically is not all there is! What lies below the surface is equally important (and may be more important).

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. Isaiah‬ ‭55:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Lord, may we see with Your eyes! Peel back our distorted lens and may we see clearly as we walk through days of challenge, days of disappointment, days of grief, and days of doubt.

And Lord, may we see clearly as we walk through days of joy, days of successes, and days of victory!

No matter what kind of day we have, may we see YOU in it!! And may we see what You see!
