5 Things you Should Know about the Name of Jesus

whatisitaboutthatname

  1.  Wonderful
    Jesus is a wonderful name as when you hear that name you reminded of Love, Joy, Hope and Peace
  2. Counselor
    Jesus is the best counselor i have ever met. In times of my needs i have gone to men, pastors and friends asking for advice. Yes some gave me good advice but other could not help. But every-time i went Jesus for counseling He advised the perfect way
  3. Mighty God
    Jesus indeed is mighty God. He is the ONLY GOD that left His throne, became a man and then GAVE His live for us and Rose again. He is the only God of all gods
  4. Everlasting Father
    in my childhood i had a very rocky relationship with my earthly father. But when i became born again 1 year before he died we connected and forgave each other for our wrongs and it was the best year i had with him while he was still alive. Wish i stayed in Cape Town that time to be with him. He is no longer with us but everyday i know that i have a HEAVENLY FATHER that i can now call PAPPA, DADDY and i know He is there for me. i can call him anytime and He will come and he will treats you like no Father on earth can
  5. Prince of Peace
    Jesus is indeed the prince of peace. Where there is a storm in your life when He comes into your life you will find peace. What is true peace. To me there is earthly peace and God’s Peace. For many when you earn good money you have earthly peace but when the money dry up the earthly peace is no more. (Just using money as and example) But with God’s Peace when the money runs out and even all go wrong you will know that He will see you though to the end

i trust that today you will see who Jesus really is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.

If you want to commit you life to follow Jesus today pray this with me.

Father i come to you in Jesus name,
i know that i am a sinner and ask forgiveness of my sins. i believe that you are the Son of God and died for my sins and rose again. i open my heart to you and ask to take control over my life and make me my Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. i ask this in Jesus name and thank you for my salvation.
Amen

Have a Blessed day with Jesus

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be calledWonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9v6

my brother Charles commented on facebook on this post – Y’SHUA , Y’SHUA, Y’SHUA : there’s just something about YOUR NAME : like the fragrance after the rain ; kings and kingdoms will all pass away but LORD Y’SHUA ; YOU’RE here to stay !!!!
This song has been on my heart all morning

Always Pray in Everything You Do

Before my wife left for the UK on Virgin Atlantic i prayed and asked God to send angels before that plane to have a safe flight. Why you ask? did i think Virgin Atlantic was not a good airline? NO. i believe in prayer. For me i pray before i eat, i drive, i do anything even when doing woodwork to ask the Lord to show me how to make something. i even pray when i work on my car or before i design a website. Why? Well Jesus as the creator of heaven and earth knows it all so why not ask Him that knows it all.
Have blessed day with Jesus

Do Not Worry

do_not_worryEveryday we have problem in daily life and just can’t handle it. Then we start to worry which can turn into stress, sickness and taking things we should not.

There is a solution if that when you follow Jesus and have a relationship with Him He will guide to in the world to find a solution. So do not worry

Be anxious/worry for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Let us pray….

Father i thank you this day that as i follow you i do not have to worry. i thank you for everything that you have given me and bring all my needs before you today. Lord these are my needs …….fill in your needs here …….. . i thank you this day that you will give me the peace of God in my heart and guide me during this day. i ask this in Jesus name. Amen

Have a Godly day and don’t worry
Blessings
