Topic: The Name of Jesus
Focus: “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.” (Acts 3: 6)
In our Focal Scripture, Peter proclaimed, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk. The lame man needed to walk again, and by Peter’s proclamation, that restoration of movement was to come by the name of Jesus. The next level of that lame man was to come in the name of Jesus. The new season of the lame man was embedded in the name of Jesus. Status quo was about to be broken because of the name of Jesus.
Friend, the name of Jesus is the identity that does not tolerate the status quo. The name of Jesus is the password to your new season and next level. The name of Jesus is the pathway to your divine surprises. The name of Jesus has embedded in it your change of story. The name of Jesus is pregnant with that miracle you desperately need. The name of Jesus is a sure vehicle that has your advancement and breaking forth in it.
It is an error to proclaim the name of Jesus and still accept the status quo. It should be illegal to confess the name of Jesus and still accept the negativity that the enemy planted in your destiny. It amounts to a mockery of the name of Jesus for you to accept what is contrary to the very name by which you were saved. You aren’t doing the name of Jesus a favour by accepting less than what the name of Jesus can afford.
If Jesus has redeemed you, then demand that your ‘lameness’ must end immediately. Demand that your change must happen immediately. Proclaim the name of Jesus over every negativity that has stood its grounds. Proclaim the name of Jesus over every negative cycle that has followed you from year to year. Proclaim the name of Jesus over every satanic plot to keep you at the same spot. Call the name of Jesus over your situation.
Remember, at the mention of that name, negativity bows. Command every negativity in your life to bow to the name of Jesus.
Philippians 2:10 says: “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;”
Declaration: I come in the name of the Lord; every negativity must bow, in Jesus’ name!
