Devotions for Lent. March 14

CEB Psalm 91:14 God says, “Because you are devoted to me, I’ll rescue you. I’ll protect you because you know my name.

Through the practice of devotion to God, I was coming to learn that preserving loving relations in this world required much forgiveness, tolerance, patience, gratitude, and humility. An essential virtue of humility is to accept others for what they are, despite differences. I contemplated again how the tendency to judge others is often a symptom of insecurity, immaturity, or selfishness, and I yearned to rise above it. Everyone is a child of God. God loves all of His children. If I wish to love God, I must learn to love those whom He loves. Radhanath Swami.

Precious no other name I know, say the name
Am Jesus say the name
Am Jesus say the name
So precious no other name I know that can go your
fears and dry your tears and wipe away your pain.
When you don’t know what else to pray
When you can’t find the words to say, Say the name.
Say the name of Jesus
Say the name of Jesus

When someone calls out your name, the immediate reaction is to look around to see who that might be. It has to be someone you, after all, they called you by name. If it is somebody that you’re in a love relationship, there might be a special name by which you know each other.

Loving the LORD your God with all your heart, all your being, and all your strength (devotion). (Deu 6:5 CEB) Such love will always invoke a response from God, just call on his name.
