Know Our God

We all know that God knows how many hairs we have on our head, what more he knows our name. But do we know God’s name?

We may know Him as God, Lord, Jesus, Friend, Redeemer and more. But do we know the authority His name carries? Is it just a myth we read in the Bible or it is absolutely, undoubtedly real?

Prairie

I would confess, His authority is something that I’ve heard of but not by my own experience.

So.. Here is What Happened

Here is my testimony. Weeks before, there was a murder case that happened at the abandoned building near the Sg Jernih MRT. As a normal human being confronted by such violent news, I was scared la and is affected mentally. I was in constant fear!

I pray against fear and ask for protection in my prayers every morning but the more I pray the more fear came into my mind. Imagination begins to form in my mind and as I looked around everywhere I went, I was afraid and a little convinced that it might just happen to me too.
protection

One night, I just couldn’t rest my mind to sleep! Me out of out the people! If I have a superpower it’ll be sleeping, so I was pretty disturbed that night. Well, I start thinking about all sorts of rubbish and then I saw a dark figure in my room! Yes, I know that imagination can run wild, but I strongly felt that there was “something” in my room.

HELP!!

The only logical next step is to find someone to talk to. so I look through my WhatsApp contact list. I start hunting down who is awake and AHA! found her. Even better when she started replying me immediately. I asked her what should I do and this is how she directed me.

Oil and water
So she told me the steps to get the dark figure out

  1. Speak in tongues and discern what is it that is bothering me, rebuke it in Jesus name.
  2. Sanctify my room and pledge His blood to my room.
  3. Open the window as I pray for my room. (Yes literally open your window, I asked that silly question too)
  4. Get the oil to anoint my room

After doing all this, I thought I will be ok, but I was still in fear because I’m not sure whether the dark figure got out, or not.

what if my window open too small, it cannot get out, how?

The Heart of the Problem

Yes… when human drowned in fear it can be hilarious. So I told my friend I was still scared, she started praying for me and ask me to pray using scripture for myself. One of them was

  • 2 Timothy 1:7 New King James Version (NKJV) – “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

11 | 365 - negative space

As she did not mention which verse is this, I asked which is this verse. She got kind of mad and sad. This is what she said

“As a Christian, you don’t even know your Bible. If you don’t know the Words, you won’t be able to know how to use God’s name, because you don’t know Him. His name carries so much power and authority that it can cast out demons and break strongholds of the enemy. When we don’t know God, we are like the lost sheep in the battlefield” (Acts 19:13-16)

Ouch. I know these words will stay with me for a long time and it is a wake-up call for myself.

Sunday Morning Coffee
We prayed together again where I made the decision to know the Lord more intimately. I realized that the source of fear stems from not knowing who my God really is. I thank God He is able to turn the work of the enemy

Lord, I pray that You will continue to show us more of You that we have yet to discover and help us to know You more each day. Give us a passion to learn and experience Your words. Let every encounter we have with You, bear testimonies to edify others. In Jesus name, Amen.
