“I will also give to each one who wins the victory a white stone with a new name written on it.”
Makes sense. Fathers are fond of giving their children special names.Princess.Tiger.Sweetheart.Bubba. Angel … Isn’t it incredible to think that God has saved a name just for you? One you don’t even know? We’ve always assumed that the name we got is the name we will keep. Not so … The road ahead is so bright a fresh name is needed.
Your eternity is so special no common name will do.
So God has one reserved just for you. There is more to your life than you ever thought. There is more to your story than what you have read …
And so I plead … Be there when God whispers your name.
from WHEN GOD WHISPERS YOUR NAME
December 12, 2012
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
PSALM 23:6 NKJV
What a surprising way to describe God. A God who pursues us.
Dare we envision a mobile, active God who chases us,tracks us,following us with goodness and mercy all the days of our lives?
He’s not hard to find.
He’s there in Scripture, looking for Adam and Eve. They’re hiding in the bushes, partly to cover their bodies, partly to cover their sin.
Does God wait for them to come to him? No, the words ring in the garden. “Where are you?” God asks (Gen. 3:9), beginning his quest to redeem the heart of man. A quest to follow his children until his children follow him.
