NAME OF GOD: El Hayyay
Meaning: God of My Life.
El Hayyay – the God of my life – be very close to me. Open my ears to hear you. Soften my heart to discern your Spirit. Help my eyes to recognize when you are weaving something in my life. Turn my frustration and anger away from people who seem to me to be obstacles in my life, El Hayyay, and help me to know that you are sovereign – that nothing happens to me that doesn’t first pass through your hands. Kings see you and bow down. I pray that I will live each moment in that same spirit of honor and humility before the God who knows what steps I should take, and who guides me.
Rather than viewing the cross as an historical event that will take us to heaven, we ought to view it as a current event containing everything we need to bring heaven to bear on earth.
In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans carefully and pastorally applies the cross of Christ to life today. In three parts, he considers:
• What makes Christ unique; how Old Testament prophecy and typology looked ahead to Him; and how His humiliation, death and resurrection sets Him apart as Lord
• What was accomplished on the cross for us, how it is to be the centerpiece of our lives, and how it's a source of authority for us
• What is the power of the cross and the stability it provides, deliverance it offers, the power of its ongoing remembrance, and more
The cross is the hinge of history. How much more, then, is it the hinge of your life? It gained more for you than you may realize; do not make the grave error of overlooking it. As a thank you for your gift of any amount, we’ll get this brand new book, The Power of the Cross, out to you right away.
