Living By The Power In The Name of Jesus

17 Then the [e]seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” Luke 10:17

Believers have something awesome that the world should envy – the name of Jesus. Understanding the power we have in the name of Jesus is vital to living a victorious Christian life.

However, the power in the name of Jesus Christ is triggered by understanding why the devil is so scared of it. It is not just another name – but one full of authority over every name that is named in heaven, on earth, and under the earth.

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

God has decreed that every name bows to one name – Jesus! It is an eternal decree that no one can change. It was possible because Jesus obeyed God even to the point of death on the cross. His death was something no one could do for the human race. Jesus is the name of the one who was able to die and rise from death on behalf of everyone.

A believer cannot live without this truth. The devil has no answer to the name of Jesus. He is so afraid to hear that name.

The Name Of Jesus Gives You The Power To Enforce The Glory Of God In Your Life

15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2:15

The devil wasn’t just defeated by what Jesus did on the cross – he was totally humiliated. Jesus did more than just to take back the authority of man from the devil – He made sure to put eternal fear in his heart. He will forever quake when the name of Jesus is mentioned.

19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! James 2:19

Demons are convinced that the name of Jesus is supreme. No man had ever conquered the power of death until Jesus came. Satan was seen as the master of darkness, but Jesus took care of his pride and made him tremble at the mention of the all-conquering name.

As a child of God, you cannot live without making use of the mighty name of Jesus. The name of Jesus carries everything you need for a good life. No devil should be able to stand against you when you employ the name in faith.

17 And these signs will follow those who [d]believe: In My name, they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they[e] will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:17-18

You will live in perfect peace when you make use of the name of Jesus. Too many believers are in fear – fear of what the enemy could do to them. But the devil should rather be afraid of you because of the name you subscribe to. Don’t just mention the name in vain. The name of Jesus is for a purpose, and that is to keep the devil at his place.

Today, use the name of Jesus and see the devil bow to you. Do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17

Prayer For Today

Precious Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I thank you for granting me access to use your name. Today, I declare in the name of Jesus that I am free from any limitation the enemy has planted in my life. The name sets me free from the power of darkness, and I am forever grateful. Amen
