Beloved, who has the final say in your life, Jehovah have the final say? Well am glad to tell You that God has the final say in my life, family, ministry and career. Do you know this song, When He calls me I will answer, when He calls me I will answer, when He calls me, I will answer. I will be somewhere waiting for my Lord, I will be somewhere waiting, I will be somewhere waiting, I will be somewhere waiting for my Lord. I will be somewhere waiting, I will be somewhere waiting, I will be somewhere waiting for my Lord.

Yesterday, we where encourage to be ready for the Master’s use. The made is clear that the time to answer when you are called is NOW you are put it off for next time because their may be no next time. Know yea not that as God is calling on one man, there are other fifty hidden in the cave that the Lord has ready for His use. Praise the Lord ( 1kings 18:4)  .

Beloveth, you cannot do without praising the Name of the Lord. no matter what the situation is, no matter what you are passing through, our God is faithful and will continue to be faithful. Therefore we have before us the topic to “Hallow” His Name.

What do know to be hallowed? We have as synonyms blessed, sacred, sanctify, reverence, respect, Holy, consecrate and such like.

We are calling you to learn to hallo the Name of the Lord. How do we hallow God’s Name? there are many ways to do that but I have few to discuss with us here and you can add up many and possibly write to us also for update. We are to hallo God’s Name through Praise and worship. we hallow His Name through our prayers. These are very known ones. But do you know that God’s Name is also hallowed when You give testimony? Do you know also that you hallow God’s Name through when you evangelize? May be you never know that God’s Name is hallowed when you do works like helping someone in need, paying a hospital bill, ensuring those around you have meaningful life, offering help the helpless.

My beloved how often we profound God’s Name by the way we act or speak. Often time we allude the glory that belongs to God to ourselves by our actions. When God gives us increase we suddenly lift our self high and there comes destruction and demotion (2 Chr 26:4-7,16-21). Beloved, contrast it with the 2Chr 27:1-9, may the blessings of the Lord not lead us destruction in Jesus Name.

We are the epistles of Christ always as such our lifestyle must depicts Him (2 Cor 3:2). We are draw men to Christ by the way we live. We must not talk about Jesus but we must act like Him too. We must dress only like Christians, we must live like one. Let people around you have course to Praise God just because of you. May we not be an object that will abhor people from following God’s way. May our ways not be a hindrance to wayfarers who are yet to make up their mind in following Christ.

Beloved, do you know that when you hallow God’s Name, you invite God into your life, He come to reign and rule in your life and situation. Come on with me for more:

                                         

“Hallowed be Your name.” Matthew 6:9b

Our calling as Christians is to bring glory to the name of God. God’s name represents His character. Taking the name of God in vain misrepresents God’s character to others (Exod. 20:7). As Christians, we carry the name of our Savior. The way we live and relate to others is a direct reflection on the name of Christ.

Doing something “in Jesus’ name” is to do something that is in accordance with His character (John 15:16). It means that Jesus would be pleased to join us in what we are doing. If, however, our actions detract from God’s reputation, He will jealously guard His name. Sometimes we are too concerned with protecting the reputation of people but too little concerned with protecting the holy name of God. When the Israelites profaned God’s name before the nations by the way they lived, God “hallowed” His name: He made His name holy by punishing them (Ezek. 36:22). When David sinned before his nation, God publicly disciplined him in order to protect the holiness of His name.

We can so tarnish the name father before our children that it hinders them from loving God as their heavenly Father. We can be such unforgiving Christians that our sinfulness discourages people from seeking forgiveness from our God. We can show such disrespect for God as we worship Him that those observing lose their reverence of Him as well.

Our supreme desire should be to glorify the name of God by the way we live.

We ought to pray daily, as Jesus taught us to, that God’s name be treated as holy.

Beloved, let us hallow our God both now and always. Let it be our way of lives and the blessings of the Lord will follow us all the days of our lives (Ps 146:1, Ps 147, Ps148, Ps 149 and Ps 150). And when you do that dearly beloved, we invite our Maker to come and rule in our midst:

 

                   “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

In heaven, God’s will is the only priority. A word from God brings angels to do His bidding, immediately and without question. Jesus instructed us to pray that God would accomplish His will in our world in the same way. This means that God’s purposes would be preeminent in our homes, our businesses, our schools, our churches, and our governments.

Jesus taught His disciples to pray that God’s purposes be carried out in the world around them. In modeling how they should pray, Jesus was teaching His disciples how to share God’s heart. He demonstrated this again at Gethsemane when He prayed, “Nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will” (Matt. 26:39). It is as we seek God’s kingdom on earth, and not our own purposes, that we gain the same mind as our heavenly Father. We become colaborers with God by praying faithfully in agreement with His desires.

As you seek the Lord’s will, He will guide your praying. He will invite you not only to pray, but also to become involved in His activity as He answers your prayer. If He places a burden upon you to pray for an individual’s salvation, that burden is also His invitation to join His activity in that person’s life. Prayer will prepare you to be a servant through whom God can bring about His will on earth. Pray that the Lord’s absolute rule on earth will begin in your life. Then watch to see how God uses you to extend His lordship to others.

Beloved, may the Good Lord help you by His Spirit to do His bidding. I will by His grace live solely for Him (Ps 137:5-6). May His hand us abide in His will and purposes for us and may His kingdom be establish here on earth in our lives in Jesus Name Amen.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
