The Name

The Name & Our Relationship with God.

The Name?

Once I really WANTED a specific job to go thru for my husband, BECAUSE I really WANTED to stay where we were & this job seemed to look like a package deal to GET what I WANTED!

A Christian woman said to me, let’s pray … & proclaim what you want & in Jesus Name she said with confidence, “The job is his!”

IF it was the Lord’s will?…which it was not! He didn’t get the job. Another time, before we moved to NC, I paced our newely paved driveway @ my dreamhome & BEGGED God for my husband to get a certain job. He got the offer, but my husband turned it down.

As I’m GROWING in the Name, I see NOW, God was shifting my life around to position me to be trained to trust God! I PRAISE God for the spiritual blessings in the Relationship OF In HIS Name!

It is an uncomfortable path, but an adventure at the same time.

The point of me sharing like this today, is the Name of Jesus should effect you, but WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED to USE His Name like Yo-Yo TO GET what we want.

The Name of Jesus, Savior & Lord is a place God lives in our heart that cannot sin! Ponder on this verse:

Whosoever IS born OF God doth not commit sin; for HIS seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, BECAUSE he IS born OF God (1 John 3:9 KJV.”)

Faith in The Name of the LORD is our Righteous heart & The Holy Spirit has a Mind! We, who believe & really love God can follow the Mind of Christ ! SURE WE CAN MAKE MISTAKES, …BUT GOD!!

GOD IS OUR STRONG TOWER!..of LIFE, Light of DIRECTION, Hand of mercy & goodness to help us back on the path if we stumble.

My friends, the Lord wants us to know the character of God, WHO IS HE, The God behind the Name!

God is not a Yo-Yo & neither is His Name. I can’t tell you all the Names of God, but I know He has a Name for every need we have!

God will not to chase us in our agendas, to BE what we want. Rather God is OUR HELP as we Trust in the plans God has for us.

That means life is uncomfortable some times, but discovering who God is to us is for our benefit of Salvation & life.

Will you RUN to the Name of the LORD?
What does this mean to you?

To me, it means changing OUR mind to GROW in our relationship WITH God!

Love HIM!

Love in Christ,

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
