FAITH IN THE NAME OF JESUS
By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see.
Acts 3:17 NIV
We have been hearing songs that praise the name of Jesus. We read Scriptures that describe things that were done through faith in the name of Jesus. We are encouraged to pray in the name of Jesus; and we know that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one will see the Father without Him.
Not all Christians have faith in the name of Jesus. There are some who still live in fear and their prayers produce little or no effect because they don't pray by faith. Apostle Peter and John prayed for the crippled beggar by faith in the name of Jesus; and the man jumped to his feet and began to walk. (Acts 3:1-10)
Later Apostle Peter explained that it was the faith in the name of Jesus that made crippled beggar strong. It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through Him that had given complete healing to him, and He was able to walk. This means that something happens when we put our faith in the name of Jesus; and miracles take place if we put our faith in the name of Jesus.
This morning, I want to encourage you to put your faith in the name of Jesus. If you want to see miracles in your life and divine favor surrounds you; then you need to start putting your faith in Jesus’ name. Don't use the name of Jesus as tradition that you need to use it every time you want to close your prayers or start them. Use it by faith knowing there is a tremendous power released in the spiritual realm by mention of the name of Jesus.
If you want to cast out devils and overcome every demon that has been following you in your life; then you need to use the name of Jesus by faith. You will see things changing in your life if you will put your faith in the name of Jesus; you will see results of your prayers if you will use the name of Jesus by faith every time you go before God.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, help me to have faith in the name of your Son Jesus. From this day forward I will use the name of Jesus by faith knowing that every time I mention it; something is going to happen for the glory of God. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
