What A Friend We Have In Jesus! Christian devotional

What a friend we have in Jesus.

What a friend we have in Jesus.

What a friend we have in Jesus! Christian devotional.

I often think what an amazing title for an old hymn, “what a friend we have in Jesus”, such amazing and powerful words, do we realise how much Jesus really loves us and what a great friend he is to us, he wants to see us succeed and be released into our full potential.

Here is a video to the song below, you may like to listen quietly as you read.

As you know, we need good strong people around us, to help us prosper, grow and to encourage us, I believe that in the Christian life this is even more important. A Christian needs discipling, I cannot underestimate the benefits and importance of having strong spirit filled Christian friends around us, to help us grow things of God.

Romans 12:2 is a great passage, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I love the fact that when I said yes to Jesus, he put a new born again spirit inside me, which totally changed my thinking and transformed me into something totally new!

I think that we all have good friends who we can share our hearts with and tell them everything, as the song says, “What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer”! I find it utterly amazing that we can share our problems and success stories with Jesus and he will hear a cry for help or our joy, he wants to communicate with us.

Have you ever been discouraged?

I think every single one of us has faced discouragement at some point in there life, but it is amazing thing that however low and discouraged that we may feel, we can take it to the Lord in prayer and he will answer us. Jeremiah 33:3 says, “3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and [a]mighty things, which you do not know”. This is such a wonderful thing, answer prayers and shows things we didn’t even know!

Have you ever been let down?

Have you ever been let down by your best friend, maybe you trust them with everything, your life, your money, your words? But then you tell them something in strictest confidence, only to discover that they have shared your secret that someone else, this could be so disappointing. But Jesus is a faithful friend, he will never let you down, you will never disappoint you and he has given you eternal life, how is that for a faithful friend!

Do you have trials and troubles?

I think most of us have suffered from trials and troubles and sometimes we just do not know which way to turn, it can be difficult. But, the good news is, help is available, many times we get deep into our problems, we phone a friend, we look on the Internet for the answer, but actually, the answer is right next to you. If only we would pray, and when I say pray, I mean to pray in faith that Jesus is the answer to our problems. Many times I ask people if they have prayed about a particular issue and often the answer is no, it’s almost as though the problem is too big, but nothing is too big for our God!

Have you had a disagreement?

Have you had a disagreement with your best friend and do you feel very disappointed that they haven’t understood you? Misunderstandings will happen, disappointments will come, but the great thing is that we take it to Jesus and give it to him in prayer, he can break and change the situation.

Let’s be thankful

We worship a supernatural God has the power to turn around any situation, nothing is too big to God! Next time you have a problem or need this prop a breakthrough, take it to the Lord in prayer, because he is your faithful friend! Can I suggest that throughout your working day you take everything to the Lord in prayer, why suffer when we can take everything to the Lord in prayer!

I think sometimes we overcomplicate the Christian life, we need to come to Jesus in a childlike way, with a simple faith an expectant faith that will move mountains. Just remember that you have a great friend, his name is Jesus.

I have put the lyrics to What a friend we have in Jesus below.

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!

In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.
Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised
Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
May we ever, Lord, be bringing
All to Thee in earnest prayer.
Soon in glory bright, unclouded,
There will be no need for prayer—
Rapture, praise, and endless worship
Will be our sweet portion there.

Don’t be sucked into Internet scams!

Don’t be sucked into Internet scams!

I thought that I would write this blog post after reading Dave’s post about a program that has closed down, you can read Dave’s post here.

Dave’s post reminded me about how back in 2004 when I first had a broadband connection, all of a sudden I could see the power of the Internet and the potential that the Internet could bring, prior to this broadband Internet connection, I found the Internet pretty slow! Incidentally, do remember being on a dial up for your Internet connection, the Internet was literally so painfully slow, the only thing you could really do efficiently was to send an email, how things have changed!

Don't be sucked into Internet marketing scams

Don’t be sucked into Internet marketing scams

I saw the power of the Internet and I was so eager to find out how to make money online and rapidly started doing searches like, “work from home”, “how to make money online” and many more similar searches! My search brought up all sorts of products and unfortunately I brought into some of these products that really failed to produce anything useful, they really were just scam products!

I have to say that through all of this, there were some decent products, and I did learn a terrific amount between 2004 and 2007, but I have to say it was a very expensive way to learn and not a quick way to get from A to B quickly, in fact it literally cost me thousands! However, I did manage to get my first money making website up in 2007 and made a sale the first day that it went live!

The reason that I’m telling you these things is that you might be new to Internet marketing or maybe your dream is taking longer than you would like it to, don’t be sucked into trying to find something better than Wealthy Affiliate or thinking you can buy something extra that will make you huge amounts of money, it won’t work! I’ve been there!

The training we have here at Wealthy Affiliate is excellent and will take you through the whole process from start to finish. The Wealthy Affiliate platform is not a get rich quickly scheme, it is a platform that teaches you how to create an online business successfully, please don’t get sucked into other schemes, you have everything you need in one place.

I would buy into a scam product and think this is definitely the one, this is definitely going to work, but in some cases I would have had another email sent me from another Internet marketer promising something better and did it sound better and I would be buying into this scheme before I had hardly started using the other scheme! I’m not proud to say these things, but this was the truth, I was desperate to make money online, but basically I was working blind, I was listening to the lies of people who wanted to take my money!

So to conclude, don’t be like I was, even though I learnt a lot before I had made hardly a penny online, stick with the Wealthy Affiliate training, you do not need anything else to make money online. Also, communicate with others on this great platform, when I first started, I was working totally blind I had no one to connect with and I was out there on my own. With Wealthy Affiliate we have the privilege of being able to communicate with other people and to share in there success stories and learn from previous mistakes and what works and what doesn’t work.

And finally, enjoy your online journey, be passionate, be enthusiastic, help others and stay cheerful, you have a bright future.

Amazing Grace Christian devotional.

Amazing Grace Christian devotional.

I think the song Amazing Grace has to be one of my favourite hymns, such amazing words and such truthful words that I believe every born-again Christian can relate to. This is a song that almost brings tears to my eyes as the words resonate in my soul, so powerful. I know what God has brought me out from and how I was and how I am now, such amazing grace.

Amazing Grace Christian devotional

Amazing Grace Christian devotional

I have added the youtube video of amazing Grace to this Christian devotional, take a listen to the amazing words.

I have a very good atheist friend who I have known for many years, although he doesn’t believe, we still talk and are very good friends and this is how it should be! My friend is a bit of a character and used to ring me up and if I didn’t answer the phone he would leave a Christian song on the answerphone. One of the songs that he left on my answerphone was amazing Grace, however, he did change the word slightly to these words!

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like Roy

I once was lost, but now am found

Was blind but now Roy see’s!

Now my friend only put my name in place of the word “me” and yet it proves the power of God’s Amazing Grace! He took me to a place where I could see, but prior to this I was just so blind, I did not understand the Christian faith whatsoever, in fact, I gave Christians a hard time.

I find it absolutely amazing when the spirit of God comes upon you he turns blindness into light and it turns sorrow into joy, this is such a wonderful thing! I didn’t understand how the spirit of God could live inside us and at one point I had no interest in the Christian faith and actually gave Christians a hard time at every opportunity. But when that born-again spirit came upon me it just changed everything, every day I marvel at his amazing Grace.

I was blind

I was blind, I just could not see the truth, I laughed at other Christians who prayed and said things like, “God will make away” or “God can do the impossible” or “one day you will believe”, and people said this type of thing, in my mind I knew that I would never believe! But how wrong I was!

Something changed

In the mid-1990s, something started to change inside me, I thought there has to be more to life than just working hard and playing hard, surely we don’t just work hard play hard and then die, there has to be more! I started thinking that I need to find a church, it took me two years to pluck up the courage and to ask a friend if I could to church with them, but I eventually did it! I remember standing in church with people singing their hearts out, arms in the air and I just saw true freedom and a passion in these people, I really wanted some more of this! It felt so strange to be in church, I hoped that none of my drinking friends saw me in this place, it worried me, but at the same time, I knew I was doing something right!

True freedom came!

I went to that church for quite a few weeks before I said, “yes to Jesus”, something inside me told me that I was doing the right thing and although it felt strange, I kept going to that church. I was able to complete an Alpha course which was perfect for me as I had 1001 questions to ask and I have to say my questions were answered!

From that day when I said, “yes to Jesus”, I have never looked back, he is my hope and here is my all, I see his amazing Grace on a daily basis, knowing Jesus really does ring true freedom. Have you said yes to Jesus?

What is grace?

I believe that grace is one of the most important concepts of the Bible, Grace brings so much freedom. God showed me his amazing Grace before I was born again, he shows it to me on a daily basis., Scratch that

Grace is something that we don’t deserve, but God gives it.

Grace is being kind to people who are not kind to us.

Grace is given people the benefit of the doubt.

Grace is reaching down to people who don’t know God, this happened to me, big time.

Grace is loving someone who doesn’t deserve it.

Grace is getting what you don’t deserve.

Grace is speaking to others in a gracious way, not looking down on people.

Grace means so much and I could make the list go on for a long time, one thing is for sure, I thank God for his amazing Grace, it really is quite something. I think most Christians could talk forever about the grace of God.

Here are the words to Amazing Grace

Amazing grace! how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch; like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

The Lord hath promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun.

A Video Review Of Wealthy Affiliate

A video review of Wealthy Affiliate

I currently rank at number18 at Wealthy Affiliate at the time of writing which gives me ambassador status on Wealthy Affiliate, you can click on the link below to see my profile and you can actually try out the platform for free. No credit card is needed and you can stay a free member for as long as you like, although I would recommend that you upgrade to premium membership as this way you receive all the benefits. I actually went to premium membership straightaway as I wanted to take advantage of all the benefits that this platform has to offer.

I’ve been self-employed since 1983 and I have owned and sold a few businesses successfully, I’ve also been working online since 2007, I had my first moneymaking website in the same year. I started carrying out searches for “how to make money online” or  “work from home opportunities” in 2004 and I purchased many spam products that didn’t do what they said on the package! I had to admit that some of the products were not all bad and I did learn a terrific amount, the problem is that there was a huge cost to this learning curve, in fact, it cost me thousands! The reason I am telling you this is because Wealthy Affiliate teaches you the correct way to start a business online. If I had found a platform like this, back in 2004 when I first started researching Internet marketing, I would have got from A to B much quicker and would have spent a lot less money on useless products.

The wealthy affiliate platform takes you through the process of how to start an online business step-by-step, there are many videos that show you exactly what to do and you will be given an action plan to keep to before you go onto the next training video. The problem I had when I was researching Internet marketing was that I was working totally blind, but this platform totally takes this problem away, by giving you accurate information.

You can also ask questions along the way, for example, if you go to my profile here you will be able to see that I have asked many questions along the way. The great thing about being part of an Internet marketing community is that normally someone will know an answer to your question and can point you in the right direction.

One of the many benefits of being part of a membership site is that you receive free hosting which is actually Amazon hosting, which I believe is to be some of the best hosting available. From my experience, my hosting was costing me more than the membership costs on this platform, I now have no hosting costs, but instead I’m part of a great membership site with the free hosting, one of the many benefits.

This membership site also allows you to buy domain names and to put up your own website in a matter of seconds, prior to joining Wealthy Affiliate, I always let my Webmaster build my websites, but now I’m able to do this myself, which is great news. You can actually host up to 25 websites, which is enough for most people, I don’t even have that many websites!

I remember when I first started working online I felt very alone and there was a terrific amount of guesswork went into what I was doing. Being part of a membership site means that you are no longer out there on your own, you have live chat, we can chat to anyone who’s around and asked them a question, or if you want to wait a bit longer, you can just ask the question to the whole community, the great thing is that you will receive an answer to your question.

The platform also enables you to write blog posts, so you can share your thoughts and help other people along the way.

The platform explains in great detail how to market yourself and your website, I have used these principles for my off-line business and my online business and they really do work. If you want to leverage the full power of the Internet I really recommend that you try this great platform.

You may also like another review that I have written regarding this platform here.

Do you pick up the phone, or go to the throne?

Do you pick up the phone, or go to the throne?

This is a question that I am often asked!

Do you pick up the phone or go to the throne?

Do you pick up the phone or go to the throne?

Matthew 11:28-30 says;

28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am [a]gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

And Jeremiah 33:3 says;

3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and [b]mighty things, which you do not know.’

Call on My Name and I Will Answer You!

How many people do you know that when they have a problem they pick up the phone rather than go to the throne room of heaven!? I have been in many churches and I’ve seen people running around asking different people and talking about there particular problem, asking what they should do! Now please don’t think that I’m saying, don’t talk to anyone about your problem or issue that you may be facing, personally I love to have strong people around me who will support me and pray with me and actually care about me. But the first person you really need to go to is to call on the name of Jesus and get that mountain moved!

Mark 11:23 says;
23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

Mountain be removed and cast into the sea

I think that we have all had mountains to deal with, some of us more than others, I have had mountains to move, but I know when I call on the name of Jesus, he would answer me! Now that is not to say that the problem will go away straight away, but what I do know is that God does hear our prayers, big time!

I see too many Christians full of fear, but the Bible teaches us not to worry, but to have faith in God. Matthew five tells us that worry you will not make us live any longer, in fact, our worry it will probably get us to heaven earlier. Jesus came to give life and life abundantly let us trust him today and let us seek first the kingdom of God and watch what happens.

Thought for the day

Do you pick up the phone or go to the throne?

How to add an image or photograph to your Gmail

How to add an image or photograph to your Gmail

How to add an image or photograph to your Gmail account.

It’s always a good idea to have a photograph on your Gmail accounts and related Google accounts. Many of us, including myself have several Gmail accounts and when you are scrolling down looking for various accounts, I find it very useful to be able to recognise the account by a certain image or photograph.

In this video I take you through the steps to add a photograph to your Gmail account.

The first option is to go to your Gmail account and click on the icon where your photograph will be shown on the far right hand of the screen, once you have uploaded it. This will then bring up a circle with your initial in the centre and the option says “change”. Click on this and then it will take you to the upload my photograph screen, this video will show you the alternative way which I will explain to you now.

The second option is to go to your Gmail account, go to the settings icon, which looks like a cog and then in the drop down menu, click on “settings” and then scroll down the page will take you to “my picture”. Then click on “select picture” and then click on “choose file” and choose a file from a destination on your computer and then just adjust the box to show the correct part of the image that you want to be seen.

Just remember that it does take a few hours normally before you see your image live.

What are you thinking?

What are you thinking?

What are you thinking?

What are you thinking? Are you thinking what can I do or are you thinking what can Jesus do? Unfortunately, I see too many Christians full of worry and anxiety, there is a name for this and Christians don’t like to hear it, it’s called unbelief!

You can’t but he can!

You can’t, but he can, this is great news! Hebrews 12:1 – 2 says this;

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Before I was born again, I didn’t have the spirit of God living in me, the very day that I said yes to Jesus his Holy Spirit came to live within me, such an amazing thing, he never fails to amaze me what the spirit of God can do. I like what Romans 8: 9 says;

But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.

I thank God that the day that I said yes to him, my spirit changed to a born-again spirit, my thinking changed, my perspective changed and I have a hope and a future, this is not for a select few people, it is for everyone who desires God says yes to Jesus. I know that being born-again doesn’t mean that all the problems are over, but we do have a hope and we do have a helper and counsellor.

John 14:26 26 But the [a]Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.

 

How is your thought life?

It is very easy to let our thoughts run wild and rather than thinking what God can do, humans often have a tendency to think about the problem and in this way the problem magnifies. 2 Timothy 1:7 says that;

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind”.

This Scripture is so true, God has given us a very sound mind, he hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, he has given us a new spirit, which is full of power and love. The Message Bible explains this verse in this way;

5-7 That precious memory triggers another: your honest faith—and what a rich faith it is, handed down from your grandmother Lois to your mother Eunice, and now to you! And the special gift of ministry you received when I laid hands on you and prayed—keep that ablaze! God doesn’t want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible.

We have to be so careful not to think about what are feelings are thinking, but by what the word of God says.

There have been occasions in my life when my thought life has got the better of me in the middle of the night, I have actually got up in the middle of the night and started praying to break this terrible thought pattern. For some reason, the mind seems to be able to come alive in the middle of the night and think the very worst, but we need to take a God-given authority and rebuke any thoughts that are not of God.

Do you have a war room?

Last night I was watching the Christian film, “War Room”, I have seen this film several times, it is absolutely brilliant and if you have not seen this film, I strongly recommend that you try and see it, it is potentially life changing.

It is about a couple who have a very busy lifestyle, a very nice house and go to church when time permits, but basically it’s all about the material life, they also have a 10 year old daughter whom they have  very limited time for, due to their busyness. To cut a long story short, the wife meets an older anointed Christian lady who tells her how to pray powerfully and not to make the same mistakes she did.

The younger lady (Liz) receives so much from the older anointed Christian lady that her family life is greatly turned around. She actually creates an area in the home purely for prayer, which he refers to as her war room and this is where the battles take place and she and her family have become overcomers.

Do you have a war room where you do battle’s in the heavenly realm?

 

Be an overcomer

I have unfortunately seen many Christians who are not overcomers, this is not God’s plan for our lives, he has given us his word, which has the power to overcome obstacles and move the largest mountains. I believe that the best thing we can do is to have a quiet place where we can pray regularly, in fact maybe we all need a “war room” where we can do battles and be winners!

So let us set our thoughts on things above and what the word says and not go on our own thinking, in other words, only believe!

Are you in tune with God?

Are you in tune with God?

Are you in tune with God?

Are you in tune with God? I hope you are, sometimes it’s too easy to go our own way and not here the voice of God.

John 5:19 tells us; 19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.

We need Jesus

We are all created in the image of God and we all need a saviour, the one that came to freedom and life in abundance. Do you know what God’s will is for your life or are you just going through life with no plan or no goals? John 10:10 tells us that Jesus came to bring life and life in abundance, the thief came to steal. I know that I want to choose life, I know that life throws things at us that we don’t always want, but it’s wonderful to know that God is bigger and can move the largest mountain.

Being in tune with God means that you have direction in your life, a plan for the future, I can’t think of anything worse than just walking blindly through life, this is far from God’s best.

So what is the plan?

I normally start my day by making coffee and at this time of year making the fire up, it is particularly cold as I write this devotional! I then turn to the word, often this can be in the form of devotionals, I’ve always enjoyed reading devotionals, but I do make sure that they are from spirit-filled men and women of God, as I only want to take my counsel from strong people of God and people who are full of the Holy Spirit. I also like to choose a passage from the Bible, sometimes this can be something random or sometimes I will follow a plan. Sometimes I will just listen to the Bible in audio form as I work, I appreciate that this isn’t quite the same as sitting down quietly and reading the word, the same time I feel modern technologies have given us the ability to hear the word wherever we are.

I was reading something from the late Billy Graham the other day and he was talking about finding a place in your home and a regular time when you can be quiet and come for God and pray and hear the voice of God, this is so important. I also heard Billy Graham say that when you come into the word you pray it is impossible to stay the same, the work transforms us, it brings joy, it brings health and woman really believe in the word of God there is so much power.

I promise you that if you take the steps to read the word of God, to pray and to listen to the voice of God you will be transformed. Many of us are too busy doing their own thing rather than spending time in the presence of God, I challenge you to have a firm plan to read the word daily at sea what happens.

Are you in tune with the King of Kings?

As I mentioned earlier, I read many different devotionals from various spirit filled authors, I don’t think I have any particular favourites as all these great men and women of God have something to offer. One of the authors that I regularly read from is Smith Wigglesworth, he was a humble Yorkshireman and a plumber by trade, he gave up his plumbing business to share the gospel with the lost.

Smith Wigglesworth was a man of great faith, he believed God for the absolute impossible! I see too many Christians today doubting the word of God, one of Smith’s sayings was, “if God’s word says it, that settles it”! I always say that I have a simple faith, but a strong faith, I do not know everything in the Bible, I struggle to quote Scripture at times, but I do believe that I have seen the miraculous! I used to be an atheist, but God had a plan for my life, I now say 2 people that I have seen too much not to believe, I want to encourage you to stay in tune and believe what the Holy Bible says, whatever your situation.

We all have a choice 

Jesus was perfectly in tune with his heavenly Father as  John 5:30 tells us.

I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.

I believe that we need to die to ourselves and seek our heavenly father, not our will, but his will. In doing this we will release ourselves from our own will and live in the freedom of God! I have been on both sides of the water, in other words, there was a time when I was not living my life to Jesus, but living for self, I can assure you this does not work and it does not bring true joy and happiness. Only seeking first the kingdom of God can bring true everlasting joy. I think all this go through trials, but many of us lose our joy in our trials, but the word does not say this, we need to remain positive, stand on the prices of God and be expectant. If every time you have a trial and we lose our joy, we will spend the majority of our life feeling sad and downcast, I know full well that we can often sort out one trial and another one quickly follows, this is why it is important to stay in tune with God and make a choice to be joyful.

Stay in tune with God and keep the joy!

I cannot emphasise the importance of staying in tune with God and keeping your joy! I have heard Todd White say “wouldn’t it be great if Christians believe that the Christian life was a supernatural life”! This is so true, the Christian life should be the supernatural life, we should be moving mountains, people should see something different on us, I’m thankful that we believe in the God is impossible, the God of the breakthrough!

So are you going to stay in tune with God and keep the joy, I promise that if you do this, you will not regret it.

Are you full of fear?

Are you full of fear?

Are you full of fear?

One of the many things that I appreciate about the Christian life is that Jesus said: “it is finished”! So what does this mean, I believe that Jesus wants us to trust in him and take full advantage of it all!

I like the scripture from Matthew 8:23-27 The wind and the waves obey Jesus.

Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. So the men marvelled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”

The disciples were scared, the water was starting to cover the boat, I must admit I think I would have been a bit scared of water coming over the boat.

But then Jesus asked his disciples why they were fearful and said, O you of little faith! But when Jesus spoke, the sea became calm, there is so much power in the name of Jesus!

Maybe today you are fearful of something, maybe your business is going through a tough time or you’re marriage is going through a difficult period?

I have good news for you.

Jesus came to give life and life in abundance, he wants us to call on the name above all names Jesus and cast our fears upon him. It would be wonderful if Christians actually realised that the Christian life is a supernatural life!

Call on the name of Jesus

I heard the story of a Christian farmer who had a large maize crop and at the time the farm was suffering from a terrible drought. The plants were literally withering away in the summer heat. Can I ask you what you would do in this situation?

Thankfully the farmer was a man of faith and he called on the name of Jesus and the skies changed from sunshine to heavy rain. Apparently, it rained heavily all night and the farmer received a bumper harvest. This is what happens when we call on the name of Jesus.

Drop the fear, keep the faith!

I can recall in my own life many times when I have called on the name of Jesus and he has answered immediately! Are you fearful today, are you calling on the name above all names?

I urge you to call on the name of Jesus and to expect to see the miraculous!

How about dropping the fear but keeping the faith?
