Today I want to remind all of us of the power of Jesus’ name. You are safe and protected, you don’t need to stress whether you will make it or not. You will. Not because you’re so good but because there is power in the name of Jesus. When you live in Jesus’ name, you truly are safe. Just hear how Jesus is praying:
Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled. (John 17:11-12, NIV, emphasis added,*)
You are protected by Jesus’ name. And you’re kept safe by it. The power in Jesus’ name is so much more than what we give credit to it. And that’s our loss. Because then we tend to bend towards fear. And that’s not what God wants for us. Jesus came so we could live in peace.
The power of Jesus’ name
But even that is not all, folks! The name of Jesus also fights for us. With the words of Isaac Pittman “Do you realize just how much power is in the name of Jesus?…When you speak it, demons have to flee! You have that access! Use it”.
As Christians, we are not helpless victims. The power in Jesus’ name is limitless, so let’s not forget to use it. Let’s use it whenever we are in need, especially in affliction. Just uttering ‘Jesus’ covers us with his blood. We are safe in Jesus and we’d better believe it and put that name to good use.
Just think. How much more do you dare to do when you remember you have the power of Jesus’ name backing you. So remind yourself of it regularly and pray and dream accordingly. Your life is not on your shoulders, it’s on God’s. What a privilege and joy!
We are in awe of you.
How generous you are, how perfect your plan is.
Thank you for providing for us.
Please do continue to protect and bless us.
We love you and we praise you forever and ever.
In Jesus’ powerful name,
Q4U: Do you tend to forget how powerful the name of Jesus is?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you live by the power of His name. And sing “There’s no other name above Jesus!”
