Powerful Name of Jesus

Victory in Jesus’ Name

If you are going through a difficult situation right now, I encourage you to call on the name of Jesus. Speak His powerful name over the circumstances you are facing. When you submit your life fully to God, you can resist the devil, and he MUST flee from you (James 4:7)!

You may be feeling desperate for a miracle today, but I have good news: Jesus is LORD! There is victory in His name. You can declare His name, and every work of darkness must leave you alone. Satan’s evil forces MUST obey you. They have no choice!

Lift up the Name of the Lord

One of your most powerful weapons of warfare against the enemy is to worship the Lord and give Him thanks — before you see the victory come to pass.

The Bible describes a time when this principle was utilized by King Jehoshaphat to defeat the enemy armies that came against the people of Judah. The worshipers were to go out in FRONT of Jehoshaphat’s army to praise the Lord. Even before they saw the victory, they proclaimed God’s faithfulness:

“Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever” (2 Chronicles 20:21).

Do you remember what happened when they lifted up the name of the Lord? He set ambushes to defeat their enemies (2 Chronicles 20:21-23)!

What a great lesson for us. Yes, the enemies are real — but there is overwhelming victory when we magnify and praise the Lord.

I encourage you to take a few minutes right now to think about all the things God has done for you. If your testimony is anything like mine, He has rescued you from sin and broken the chains from your life. And I bet He’s also touched your body, given you financial provision, and blessed you in countless other ways.

So go ahead and praise Him. Lift up the name of Jesus, and thank Him for all He has done. This can be your day of victory!
