Call your problems by their name

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in earth, and things 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.

To define a problem, and to call it by its name is to begin to claim the victory that could be yours, if you’d claim it.

If it’s a problem, call it what it is, and then call the name of Jesus – the only name by which we are saved.

Jesus saves.

Our Father is with His children always. He never leaves or forsakes us. He is a very present help in time of need. He is able to save.

But we must call upon Him.

And call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me.  Psalm 50:15.

No, we have not been called to a life that’s free from problems, but we have not been left without help either.

So be encouraged again – you are not without help.

Recognize your problems as what they really are (they’re problems; mountains waiting to be cast into the sea).

Open your mouth today. Call those problems what they are.

And then call the name of Jesus.

Help is truly not that far away.

Don’t wait another minute to be free.

  1. It’s so true that naming things is powerful, and the more intentional we are in our thought and language the more clearly we can see things and move toward change! Thanks for sharing these thoughts!
