There is power in the name of Jesus
There is so much power in the name of Jesus

The name of Jesus is above every name and 'trumps' everything. It is more powerful than any addiction, disappointment, loss, brokenness, lack, wrong thinking and misguided actions. The name of Jesus can be yielded like the sword that it is, to break every chain that holds us captive to the ways of the enemy and brings forgiveness, salvation, freedom, redemption and restoration. Jesus overcame sin and death to rise again. The power that restored Him to life is available to us to break the things that keep us from becoming all that God created us to be, and to achieve His purposes through us. Reading about Him enables us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds; seeing Him in a situation breaks its hold on us as we understand that He was there all the time and carries away the pain; speaking out His name brings peace, release and an infilling of His power; and trusting in Him releases Him to do what only He can do.
There is one mediator between us and God (1 Tim 2:5) and when we pray in faith and in Jesus' name, we bring the power of Jesus and the Holy Spirit to bear in any situation, and to bring life. So, we can pray, listening to the Spirit, with expectation that God will act, not always in the way we anticipate, but certainly in power. We must remember that it cannot be used for our own personal gain (shame, I know!), but always for His kingdom to come and His name to be glorified.
