Topic: The Authority of His Name
Bible verse: Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. (Philippians 2:9-10).
The scripture above is definitive about the authority of Jesus. This is different from the character or identity of His Name. For example, Jesus passed by many sick people who didn't take advantage of His identity to receive healing when He walked the earth. In fact, the Bible says He came to a place where there were many impotent people, He healed one person and went away from there (Read John 5:1-15). Yet He had His identity, character and authority.
You're not even required to squeeze up faith to use His Name. His Name is an instrument and a gift given to you to use. And the authority of His Name is over things, beings, and anything that can be identified. Anyone of us can use that Name and the power in it. Read John 14:12-14.
He gave us the power of attorney-the legal right to act in His stead. So, don't cheat yourself; use His Name. Use it against Satan, the forces of darkness and circumstances, and they will respond to you as they would to Jesus.
Say these short but powerful declaration: The seal on everything that God made bears the awesome Name of Jesus. I do all things and work wonders in His Name. Thank you Father for the privilege to use the most awesome and powerful Name of Jesus to effect changes in my life and in my world. Amen.
If you believe these words, comment Hallelujah.
