In Jesus' Name


The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your Name.”
-Luke 10:17

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.
-John 17:11-12

I write to you, dear children,
because your sins have been forgiven on account of his name.
-1 John 2:12

I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
-Psalm 63:4

Let them praise your great and awesome name—
he is holy.
- Psalm 99:3

“Teacher,” said John, “we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.”
“Do not stop him,”
Jesus said. “No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me,
-Mark 9:37-38

By the very Name of Jesus sick are healed, dead are raised, demons are cast out, mountains are moved, people are protected, and sins are forgiven. The power of Jesus' name is great and beyond our human comprehension. So often we worry and stress over things that God has complete control over. We actually have the audacity to worry over situations in our life, acting like God can't handle them. The same God who raised Lazarus from the dead, created each and every one of us, healed the blind, fed 5,000, and forgave our sin. Next time you are scared and worried over something in your life, look to Christ. Seek comfort in the fact that His name is more powerful than any situation!

In His Love,
