Do you know and understand the power that is behind His Name?

This morning when I arrived at the gym I noticed a few women in a huddle. One of them came up to me and said:” We need to pray, Larry, (one of the men that trains at my gym), is seriously ill, we were talking to him a few minutes ago, and all of a sudden he lost his memory.”

I am a retired nurse, but I only asked the normal questions in a situation like this, for I did not tell anybody I was a nurse.  Nobody paid any attention to my questions, so I went on my merry way to do my exercises. However, at that moment I changed my mind, instead I turned around and addressed  the ladies that were around this sick man and said:” I am a nurse, can I help.”  That instantly changed the situation. One of the ladies said;” Yes, you can, for Larry does not want us to call 911; he says he will be alright”. I immediately asked for a blood pressure kit at the gym, and told Larry I was a nurse and could I help him by taking his blood pressure. He agreed and sure enough it was very much higher than his base line had been in the past. I advised him to have us call the paramedics and he agreed without hesitation. The paramedics came immediately and rushed him to the hospital.

 Larry resisted any help from anybody until  he was confronted with the name “ nurse.” He recognized the authority that goes along with that name and he succumbed to treatment.

“The name of God (YHWH) is a tower of strength, the righteous run to it and is [thus] strengthened.”  Proverbs 18:10. I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love that precious name of Jesus. Even the slightest whisper of His name can turn the most troublesome issue around for His glory. I sense that there are people reading this article and they have no idea where or to whom to turn to any more.Try saying His Precious name out loud: it will make demons flee. Deep love and tenderness for you is behind that name:there is none like Him.

Life can become a drag, a disappointment, but when you call on His name, mountains have to bow down, demons have to flee and the drug addict has to recover. It is the King of Kings and Lord of the Universe who stands behind that beautiful name. It does not matter if you scream His name out loud or whisper it softly: He will always come to the rescue, for that is the power behind the name. Oh don’t you just love Him?

Below, we have a picture of broken pieces of a vessel. God came and by the power of His name He repaired the broken pieces and made a brand new vessel that is over flowing with the wine of His Joy. I hear Jesus say:” Each broken piece of your life can be restored to a whole and useful vessel overflowing with the wine of My joy, healing your broken vessel. Let me touch you My darling friend and speak my Name over you for restoration and comfort. I shed those tears and suffered torment on that cruel cross just for you, so you may be made whole and restored.”

Drawn by God

This devotional book has 52 short chapters and 176 pages. Each chapter starts with a question, has a biblical background scripture that is appropriate for the title of the chapter and then discusses the answer to that query through the eyes of the author’s vision of God. The chapter ends with a prophetic word from Jesus’ heart saying “I hear Jesus say…” Every chapter ends with a drawing by the author or an inspired artist who knows Jesus intimately.

The book will make you hungry to know more of  Who God is and answers questions like, “Does He really care about the small stuff in my life? How can I give Him first place when I feel like I am losing it and I feel He does not love me anymore? Do we need conflict in our life? What about generational blessings?  How far will He go with me? What about impossible situations? How do I ever attain to living a life that is bathed in God’s rest?”

The book also shares personal examples of how the author faced tremendous difficulties in her own life. How in her youth during the war in Holland they were hiding Jews right under the nose of the Nazis who occupied a castle next door. The pain she experienced in her broken youth when she felt like no-one even realized she was around. How God became her Father and her Mother when she herself was just a young mother, longing to be free from much bondage.

The book is based on spontaneous prophetic art and how God wants to speak to each one of us not only through His precious word, but through anything that comes our way

Spontaneous Prophetic art is practiced in some churches where the artist steps forward as the worship starts and asks God for a spontaneous picture for the congregation. After the worship, the artist explains the meaning of the picture and shares what she or he senses God wants to say to the people at that point in time.

Most of us have heard the maxim, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We may try a hundred word-related ways to comprehend a truth, but somehow, pictures engrave the heart. When the picture matches the words well, the reader is more deeply impacted.

Each devotional highlights an aspect of life – a challenge, a question, an irritation, a potential decision – and offers biblical truths in a practical, encouraging voice. See sight panel how to obtain this reviving book. Orders outside the USA pleas pay an extra $5 for shipping by air.
