I have a favorite song right now. It is “I Speak Jesus” by Darlene Zschech and Here Be Lions. The chorus is “Your name is power. Your name is healing. Your name is life. Break every stronghold. Shine through the shadows. Burn like a fire.” Pretty powerful, huh? You know the name of Jesus IS powerful because the one who answers to that name is powerful. There have been times in my life and I am sure in your life too that just speaking the name of Jesus brought peace and comfort. Other times speaking the name Jesus brought me courage and strength. There are many verses in the Bible that refer to the name of Jesus and its power.
Jeremiah 10:6 ESV
There is none like you, O Lord; you are great, and your name is great in might.
Proverbs 18:10 ESV
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
John 14:13 ESV
Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Luke 10:17 ESV
The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!
Romans 10:13 ESV
For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Acts 4:12 ESV
And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
If you find yourself struggling this week, remember we can call on the name of Jesus and find strength, comfort, healing and the greatest gift of all, salvation.
“His name is power, His name is healing, His name is Life”
