Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Monday 6th September 2021
The scripture above is definitive about the
authority of Jesus. This is different from the
character or identity of His Name. For example, Jesus
passed by many sick people who didn’t take advantage
of His identity to receive healing when He walked the
earth. In fact, the Bible says He came to a place where
there were many impotent folks, He healed one person
and went away from there (Read John 5:1-15). Yet He
had His identity, had His character. So, in using His
Name, it’s about His authority.
You’re not even required to squeeze up faith to
use His Name. His Name is an instrument and a gift
given to you to use. And the authority of His Name is
over things, beings, and anything that can be identified.
Anyone of us can use that Name and the power in
it. John 14:12-14 says, “Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall
he do also and greater works than these shall he
do because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye
shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father
may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing
in my name, I will do it.”
He gave us the power of attorney—the legal right
to act in His stead—to use His Name. So, don’t cheat
yourself use His Name. Use it against Satan, the forces
of darkness and circumstances, and they’ll respond to
you as they would to Jesus.
