There is Power in His Name
“There fore God exalted him to the highest place and gave to him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)
There is great power in the name of Jesus Christ! I learned this during a particularly difficult season of my life. What I discovered was that if I praise the name of Jesus Christ feelings of darkness, despair or discouragement lifted. My circumstances did not change during that season – my attitude changed! You may be facing difficult life circumstances right at this moment. But, let me challenge you to praise the name of Jesus Christ above whatever is happening in your life right now. See if your attitude doesn’t change in the process.
Today’s challenge: Praise through the alphabet using the names of Jesus Christ. Here are a few to get you started:
Advocate – I John 2:1
Alpha and Omega – Revelation 1:8
Bread of Life – John 6:35
Counselor – Isaiah 9:6
Deliverer – Romans 11:36
Every time you feel defeated or discouraged today – Praise the name of Jesus Christ above your feelings. Please note: I’m not asking you to praise Jesus for the particular trial through which you are walking – I am asking you to praise the name of Jesus Christ above the trial you are facing. As you do, I believe you will find the Holy Spirit will fill your heart with hope!
