Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 15th June – The Highest Authority

(“Jesus” Is The Name That Opens Every Door)

TO THE BIBLE 1 John 5:13 NIV:
“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”

Public officers have the backing and authority of the government to carry out specific official duties. Without this backing, they are just regular people. But once you see them in their uniforms or identification kits, you know that they are functioning in the government’s name and are to be obeyed. By just raising his hand, one traffic warden could stop a sixteen-wheeler trailer on the road, and the driver would have no choice but to grind to a halt!

We have a name that is even greater than any government or parastatal; it’s the highest authority: the irresistible Name of Jesus! That Name opens every door in every city and every nation. That’s the Name you need for a life of consistent victory, anywhere. For example, when Jesus gave the great commission in Mark 16:15 and said, “…Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature,” He did so in His Name. He gave us His Name, and that’s something bigger than the whole world. Philippians 2:10 says, “…at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.”

Are there doors that seem to have been shut against you? Use the Name of Jesus! It’s the Name above all names. This is the reason you can be comfortable, unruffled and at peace in any city, region or nation. You’re an ambassador of Christ on a divine assignment, sent forth, not in your own Name, but in the matchless Name of Jesus Christ.

The reason for the failure, defeat, sickness, and weakness in the lives of many people is that rather than use the Name of Jesus, they trusted, as it were, in their own names. Psalm 20:7 AMPC says, “Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God.”

It doesn’t matter the challenges you might be facing; whether it’s in your academics, relationships or in your health, put the Name of Jesus to work. If it’s a pain or a growth in your body, put your hand on it and command it to go in the Name of Jesus, and you’ll definitely have results!

Dear Father, I thank you for the power in the Name of Jesus and the authority I have to use that Name against the devil, sickness, disease and all the adversities of life. By the power of that Name, I live the higher life prearranged for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
