Yahweh, Day 273

    Day 273
Yahweh: ... Calling on The Name

Joel 2:32
32 Then everyone who calls
on the name of Yahweh will be saved,
for there will be an escape
for those on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
as the LORD promised,
among the survivors the LORD calls.
(Holman Christian Standard Bible) 
 
The prophet here speaks first about calling on God’s Name in a time of distress for deliverance, and then by application in the New Testament, for salvation.  We would all do well to relearn the first application, calling on The Name, Yahweh, for deliverance.

There are times that we need deliverance from external issues/circumstances.  All kinds of problems that we may face, whether actual threat of bodily harm, or other problems and trials.  We all have them, it is a part of life and inescapable in this our fallen world.  Learn to call on The Name.

Then there are those problems and trials that are more personal in nature, the problem of personal sin.  We should likewise learn to call on The Name when any and every temptation comes our way.  We do not have to live defeated lives.  There is deliverance in The Name, Yahweh.

This is in the Name.
