The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10
I have been trying something new lately, and it is making a big difference in my life. You might wish to try it too. 🙂
It sets the tone for my day just as it should.
Because after all, what should be the first thing I think of when I wake up?
What should be that thing that I carry with me every waking moment?
What should it be?
I say the name of Jesus.
I wake up, and I say His name.
Most of the time, I still only say it in my mind, but I am trying to remember to actually say it out loud.
This shouldn’t be difficult to remember, should it? But I have 46 years of not doing it to reverse out of my groggy morning routined behavior.
But He will help me – my wonderful Jesus. He already has.
“JESUS! JESUS! JESUS!”
Guess what else?
Every time I say His name, I smile. From the inside out.
The Scripture says of the name:
“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)
Say it loud – “JESUS”
Say it clear – “JESUS”
Say it now – “JESUS”
Say it here – “JESUS”
