The Tremendous Power in the Name of Jesus - by Joyce Meyer Ministries daily devotion 29 September Friday
For this reason also [because He obeyed and so completely humbled Himself], God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow [in submission], of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess and openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord (sovereign God), to the glory of God the Father.
— Philippians 2:9-11 (AMP)
Many people—including Christians—don't have a clue about the tremendous power in the name of Jesus.
Have you ever thought about the importance of a name? A person's name represents and personifies his character, setting him apart from everyone else. When we call someone by name, we are declaring something about that person.
In the same way, when we say the name of Jesus, we are not just speaking a name. We are declaring a name that embodies power—not human power, but all the power and authority of God (see Colossians 2:9-10).
When we speak that name, we are describing the Person. Jesus means "Savior," and we are calling Him according to what He does for us—He saves us from sin, from our failures and from circumstances that are not in His will (see Matthew 1:21).
Many people want to experience spiritual power, but they don't understand that in order to release it, they must speak the name of Jesus in faith. That wonderful name has been given to those who believe.
