Your Name

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

If you're looking at any of these "impossible-for-man" situations, I dare you to give God some faith.

Unsaved Family
Death or Divorce
Debt, Bankruptcy, Foreclosure
Disability, Illness, Cancer
Hatred, Disrespect, Broken Relationships
Addictions, Sinful Habits

John 11:1 starts the story of Lazarus being raised from the dead. "Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha."

"Lazarus" means "He whom God helps."

"Bethany" means "House of Measuring" or "House of Affliction"

Lazarus's name was one whom God helps, but his location was the house of affliction. In the end it wasn't the address that mattered, but His identity in God.

Remember your identity. 

John 1:12 says that your name is "Child of God"
Philippians 4:19 says that your name is "Provided for by God"
Exodus 15:26 says that your name is "Healed by God"
Romans 8:37 says that you name is "More than a conqueror through Christ"
John 15:15 says that your name is "Friend of God"
Romans 8:1 says that your name is "Free from Condemnation in Christ"
2 Peter 1:4 says that your name is "Free from the powers of Lust"
Ephesians 2:10 says your name is "Workmanship of God"

  1. Wow! Way to hit the nail square on the head! My identity is so valuable, so wonder the enemy does everything he can to try to steal it from me, kill it in me, and destroy it entirely.

    But the truth always wins!!


Thanks so much for the feedback!!
