Once again, it has been a while since I have written anything on this blog, and I apologize to anyone who attempts to read it with any regularity. But nevertheless, here I am again.
The title of this post comes from a popular Gospel song that we were led in singing by our Pastor in church yesterday. The lyrics are as follows:
Jesus…….Something special, Supernatural about Your name.
Jesus…….Somthing happens when I mention Your name.
Let me pause here and say, I am a member of Dominion COGIC. I recently moved to Chesapeake, VA for the specific purpose of joining this church. I love my church and I really love my Pastor, Clarence Sellers Jr. and his wife, Shavon Sellers. I think they are great people of God and great leaders. I also really love the Worship we have at our church. It is God centered, free, and anointed. I really love the fact that often times during worship God’s presence is so heavy that I am moved to tears and I hear from the Holy Spirit. I am a firm believer that God heals, delivers and sets free during the Worship of him. I also believe that God will use that time to speak and impart revelation to us.
So during the singing of this song yesterday, I was surprised to hear what I thought was the voice of doubt enter my mind. I began to think things like, “I don’t see anything happening, and I am saying Jesus right now” and “I say Jesus’ name all the time and nothing seems to happen”. I was surprised by these thoughts, because I rarely question the things of God in that manner. But i didnt think it was my doubt for long because right behind those thoughts I began to hear the Holy Spirit minister to me. He began to bring scriptures to my mind like:
- We walk by Faith and not by sight. (2Cor 5:7)
- While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2Cor 4:18)
- 12 Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” (Daniel 10:12-14)
- 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)
