Topic: The Name Of The Lord
[Seeds of Destiny 24 October 2019 Devotional]
The Name of the Lord is not just a Name but a house, a tower of refuge.
SCRIPTURE: The Name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. – Proverbs 18:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Name of the Lord is not just a Name but a house, a tower of refuge.
It is an established fact that as we draw closer to the end of the age, there is an escalation of satanic wickedness and recklessness in all dimensions across the world (1 Peter 5:8). The names of the sicknesses and diseases we hear of today were not even mentioned just over twenty-five years ago. The vices and criminal activities that bedevil our society today are unprecedented in scale and intensity. When we were growing up, we hardly heard anything like kidnapping but today, the act of kidnapping seems to have overwhelmed the whole society; people bargain human lives as though they are bargaining tubers of yam.
Nevertheless, in the midst of all these, I have good news for you and bad news for the devil. There is a NAME that can both mesmerize and pauperize the works of the devil. That Name has the capacity to hide the children of God from the reach of any harm. That name has come to show that there is a power that the devil cannot contend with (Philippians 2:10).
Proverbs 18:10 also reveals that that Name is not just a Name but a house, a tower of refuge. And no matter how mad a witch or wizard gets, they cannot pursue you into the tower of the Name of the Lord. Any level of curiosity that would make the goat to go and greet the hyena in the morning – makes it to become food instantly!
My counsel is, you need to live right to be able to dwell inside the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. This means that a liar is on his own; a gossip, a womanizer, a smoker, a thief, the unforgiving, the seductress, a cheat, etc. are all on their own; they have no part in the Name of the Lord. You must know the Name of the Lord in time of peace before He can answer you in time of war.
Beloved, do not live your life carelessly in a time like this so you don’t end up as a casualty.
Today, I prophesy your exemption from all satanic traps in this season. You are preserved, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: The Name of the Lord is not just a Name but a house, a tower of refuge.
1.In the midst of agitations, let your faith in God remain firm.
2.Ensure that you are hid in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ always for your preservation.
3.Ask God daily for the grace to live a life of uprightness.
PRAYER: Lord, I confess that my life is hid in Christ in God; I am not at the mercy or a victim of satanic restlessness. I ask for Your grace to maintain a life of uprightness in order to be fit to abide in You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
