Have Faith in the Name 29 July That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.
If youve been born again, you belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. You are a joint heir with Him. You are covenanted together with Almighty God by the blood of Jesus. Youve been given Jesus own Namethe Name that is higher in authority than any other name, the Name at which every knee must bow. But for you to effectively use the Name of Jesus, you need to develop your faith in that Name. Think about it this way. Gloria and I belong to one another. We are covenanted together in the blood of Jesus by holy matrimony. She has my name. She writes it on a check without reservation. She has as much right to sign that name as I do. Its her name. It has been given to her. When someone asks her who she is, she doesnt say, Im Gloria Neece operating in the name of Kenneth Copeland. No, she says, Im Gloria Copeland. Thats the kind of confidence you need to have about the Name of Jesus. You need to know youve been named after Him. Know that when you speak, youre speaking with His authority. You need to have faith in that Name. Many times people start using the Name of Jesus, trying to work up their faith. But faith doesnt come from the Name. Faith comes from hearing and hearing by the Word of God (see Romans 10:17). So, if youre having trouble in that area, go back to the Word and study the Name. Then when you use it, youll have that sense of authority on the inside that is founded on the living Word.Job 5-6; Revelation 2At the Name of Jesus every knee shall bow. I have confidence in that Name. Philippians 2:10
