Topic: Do All Things In His Name [Monday, March 12th]
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him (Colossians 3:17).
In our opening text, the Apostle Paul was referring to the instrumentality of the Name of Jesus; using the Name of Jesus as an instrument, as a weapon, the way you’d use a knife or any weapon.
Imagine what your life would be like if you lived every day, doing all things in the Name of Jesus! Imagine that all your projects were started in the Name of Jesus! Imagine coming into your office every day, declaring, “I come in the Name of Jesus!” It immediately takes away every form of limitation. What a life of success and glory that is!
The Word is clear: you can do anything in the Name of Jesus as long as it brings the Father glory. If you’d live this way, there’d be no fear in your life; you wouldn’t go to bed at night wondering what might happen to you, because you’re living for Him—in His authority. Nothing compares to that; it’s the way to live the supernatural Christian life.
If there’s a tumour in your body, for example, use the Name of Jesus as an instrument against it. Say, “Tumour, in the Name of Jesus, you can’t stay in this body; I cut you out,” and it’ll go! If you had a problem with your heart, command it to function normally, in the Name of Jesus. If you’ve been having trouble at work, command the storm to cease, in the Name of Jesus.
His Name is the solution to every problem; it’s the way out of every quagmire. Even now, declare, “In the Name of the Lord Jesus, I have the wisdom to function and deal excellently, to answer questions, and solve problems. I do the right thing at the right time, in the right way for the right purpose.” Blessed be God!
Dear Father, I thank you for every hindrance has been taken away from my path, in the Name of Jesus. I walk the path of success, victory, and triumph, because I function, and do all things in the Name of Jesus. I’m in good health, and at the top of my game. My life is for glory and excellence, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
