The most important choices are those that lead to the greatest wealth or achievements. But are we really thinking correctly? Indeed, there are choices that elevate us and others shake us or may even bring us down. But how do we know what to choose, which path to take?
The Word of God tells us to invest in what doesn't go away, in what is worth more, in what is more than the many riches of this world...
"A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold." (Proverbs 22:1)
So, how are we esteemed by God? How is our name before Him? Let us receive Jesus, as the LORD, so that we may be made, esteemed and called by the very best name, as the Word of God says:
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (John 1:12)
"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not." (1 John 3:1)
So, if you want to live a new story and have a good name before God, then pray like this with all your faith:
I surrender, my God, I want to be estimeded and have a good name before You. I accept the Lord Jesus with all my heart. He is the Son of God, Who died on the cross to save me, and Who rose again, and He lives forever.
I ask You to make my life, name and story with Jesus new.
Glory to God!
In the love that is in Christ Jesus, who is the Name above every name,
