When it comes to getting results in the kingdom of God, God has given every Believer everything he or she needs to see manifestation in life. In fact, with all that He has equipped us with, there is no reason why we shouldn’t be getting results. The devil only has the power that we willingly give him, and when we fail to walk in our authority, he will walk all over us. But this isn’t God’s will. One of the most powerful weapons we have against the enemy is the name of Jesus. It is the name above every name—the name against which no devil in hell can stand. When we pray in line with God’s Word and seal our prayers with the name of Jesus, we can be sure that our prayers are answered. God promises to honor that name, but we must use it in order for it to work on our behalf.
The world would like us to believe that the name of Jesus is insignificant, that it holds no power, and that following Jesus is a waste of time. But for those of us who know the truth believe that the name of Jesus is a powerful spiritual resource in every Christian’s arsenal, so much so that the Bible says if we ask anything in His name, the Father will grant our prayer requests. John 14:13, 14 says, “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.” What are you facing or believing God to do in your life? It could be in the area of finances, healing, or relationships. It could be a new job, or direction on a decision you have to make. When you locate a promise in the Word of God, lay hold of it by faith, knowing that it already belongs to you. Then go to God in prayer, thanking Him in advance for the manifestation and praying in the name of Jesus. He promises to do what you ask when you come to Him in that name.
The name of Jesus is also very important when it comes to exercising your authority over Satan. Putting on your spiritual armor and binding up demonic spirits should be a part of your daily prayer time. Satan and every other foul spirit has to bow to the name of Jesus; it is just that powerful. James 2:19 says that demons believe in the one true God, Jesus Christ, and that they tremble as a result. In Acts 3:6, a lame man was healed when Peter commanded him to walk, in the name of Jesus. “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength” (Acts 3:6, 7).
You see, the name of Jesus contains within it all the authority and power of God Almighty. John 1:3 says that all things were made through the Word of God who is Jesus Christ. Therefore, when we who are in Christ pray in the name of Jesus, we are essentially going to the Father as if Jesus Himself were going to the Father, and the Father always honors His Son.
If you have not incorporated the name of Jesus into every aspect of your Christian life, now is the time. It is the only name that has absolute power and authority over the devil, and it is the only name the Father honors in prayer. Use the name of Jesus often and liberally. It is your key to getting the Father’s attention!
