Topic: Call Upon His Name [TREM Devotional Friday May 25, 2018]
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
The Word says that “whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”. He is not just saved from sin but saved from sickness, from diseases and from pains. The word ‘save’ is a robust word that is all-encompassing. Realize that everything you will need for this time and for eternity is included in it. Have you ever called upon the name of the Lord? Praise the Lord. With that scripture, you have a guarantee that some of our loved ones that we thought would go to hell didn’t go to hell. Maybe they called upon the name of the Lord when they were dying. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10 verse 14 says “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” How can they call upon the Lord for healing when they don’t believe? How can they call upon Him to answer their prayer for the fruit of the womb when they don’t believe? How can they call upon Him for them to pass their exams when they don’t believe? How can you call upon him to give you money, to prosper your business or touch different areas of your life if you have not believed in Him?
And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? Did you notice that? How would they believe somebody they’ve not heard about? Child of God, fill your spirit with His Word continually. Believe Him and call upon His name today and it shall be well with you.
