WEDNESDAY 6TH DECEMBER, 2017 READ – DAY: Luke 5; Night: Ezk 40-41
THEME: THE MYSTERY OF HIS NAME
TEXT: PHILIPPIANS 2:6-10
HYMN: EMHB 91 – All hail the power of Jesus’ name
Names play important roles in the life of any man. A name commands respect and gives room for response from the bearer of the name. There is a covenant between heaven and earth on names. That is why when we pray sometimes we mention the name of those whom we are praying for. Jesus Christ in John 14:14 says “If ye shall ask anything IN MY NAME, I WILL DO IT.” God knows your name as a believer, too!
The name of Jesus has been recognized, powered and empowered both in heaven and on earth; and to those under the earth, seen and unseen! Philippians 2:10 says “At the Name of Jesus, every knee shall bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under earth.”
The name of Jesus is far above all other names. It can do exceedingly beyond your thinking and expectations. Let me ask you this as the year is about to end; ‘Who is it that is troubling your soul? Who is the principal actor working against your life? Is it a man or a woman that is wrestling against your destiny? The good news today is that when you understand the mystery and the power behind the name of Jesus you shall overcome them all.
The mystery behind His Name is that as a son or daughter of God, once you ask anything through Him to the Father it shall be granted. Also all principalities, powers and demons holding you down bow and flee once they hear The Name.
Beloved, ask anything today in the name of Jesus and see the positive change that shall be effected in your life.
MEMORY VERSE: Phil. 2:10 “That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth”.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, open my spiritual eyes of understanding that I may know the mystery of your Name every day of my life.
