The precious name of Jesus is all I can say. How many of you can say that name and mean it. He’s God all by himself. Tonight, like no other night, God is yanking on me. My tears will not stop flowing because when I think of His goodness I can’t help but give Him all the praise. God can turn any situation around. Months ago illness hit my body. The pain hit me so hard that on that Sunday morning the doctor sent me the following day to be examined. On that day you would have thought death was at my door (really I thought it was). Several people were called because at that time I was scared. Hearing you have kidney stones in both kidneys, having heart issues, and more caused panic mode to kick in for me, because that was my health. The fear sunk in and my blood pressure went from normal to high of 197/117.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
I was trying to help someone, so stay with me. At that time I could not trust the word. All I could tell the doctor was I didn’t want to die and to give me some trial medication for this blood pressure while I was waiting to have surgery.
Moving forward waiting to have surgery, while others prayed with me my faith kicked backed in.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
The day of my surgery I ask the doctor if he believed in God and Prayer. He said, “yes” and asked if he could pray for me (if he didn’t surgery was off). The doctor informed me of all that could happen to me. Surgery took longer, I lost a lot of blood, my pressure dropped below 80, but God was with me. Glory, while in recovery room trying to get my pressure up something went over me I sat up, very weak but determined. The nurse asked if I was in pain , the answer was “no”, which was hard to believe considering what I had gone through. But that wasn’t even half of it, while my pressure was still very low God used me to minister to a nurse. When God showed up; He showed up! The doctor said he had never seen anything like it, no pain medications, up and walking, no blood pressure meds and to this day still no medication. My health is back 100%. I’m sharing this to let someone know to never lose faith and to rust in God no matter what. God turned that entire situation around. Nobody but Jesus, Give Him Glory. I know other names, but that Precious Name of Jesus, I can’t help it I love Him.
You see when things were falling apart as I thought, God was just putting things together for me to keep doing what He wanted me to do. In order to do that, He said my temple needed to be clean. I leave this prayer with you all:
Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Remember: God promises to be with you, and He is not only a promise maker but a promise keeper. God Bless You All!
