Today’s post is about blessing the name of the Lord with praises due to him that should come from our mouths.
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13 NKJV
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!
As Children of God we are born of the Holy Spirit that resides within us. We commune with Father God through the spiritual language of tongues and we are all commanded to walk in the Spirit by Faith when it comes to things involved with the Divine. The Name of God is a blessing to us. Just by uttering the name of Jesus; the power behind that name is able to dispel darkness and ignorance; it is able to heal and deliver and break every yoke and chain of injustice; it is able to set those who are captive free. The power behind the name of Jesus is that His name is Sovereign. It is so powerful that even demons tremble at the name of Jesus.
You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!
The Name of Jesus defeated Satan at the cross and now as Sons of the Most High God, we must learn to bless His Name everyday in songs, in prayers and in our meditations. When we meditate on the Name of the Lord, we discover how He is our Healer, Deliverer, Restorer, the Prince of Peace, the God that fights for us, the One who saves, the One you goes ahead of us, the One who preserves us, the One who gives us Wisdom, Knowledge, Authority, Power, Ability, Truth, the One who is in us – the Hope of Glory and the One we must give the highest glory and honor and the highest level of praise and worship.
[ A Book of Remembrance ] Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, And the LORD listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the LORD And who meditate on His name.
We cannot afford to underestimate the powerful name of Jesus. In one of my previous posts regarding how speaking a blessing can overcome and reverse the curse, we must remember that ALL blessings come from the Lord. Blessings have a divine power and that power comes from the Name of Jesus. So when you bless someone or pray blessings in your prayer time, do not forget to say the name of Jesus, because He is the source of all blessings.
Psalm 96 is in my spirit right now as I meditate on the Name of the Lord. In all that we do…we must not lose focus on the Name of the Lord. Many people do “things” in the Name…but don’t really believe in the Power of the Name of Jesus. I believe that the Lord wants His people to understand the true Power of the Name of Jesus. Many things in life can be shaken, but when we choose to stand on the solid rock of our salvation, we shall not be moved. We shall not be shakened.
Psalm 96 (NKJV)
96 Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
3 Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.
4 For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
6 Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.
7 Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Give to the Lord glory and strength.
8 Give to the Lord the glory due His name;
Bring an offering, and come into His courts.
9 Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!
Tremble before Him, all the earth.
10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns;
The world also is firmly established,
It shall not be moved;
He shall judge the peoples righteously.”
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord.
13 For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth.
He shall judge the world with righteousness,
And the peoples with His truth.
Right now, as you look at the nations experiencing different types of calamites such as the power outage in India that has left 620 million without power, or the ebola outbreak crisis that has just struck in Uganda or the 17 countries in the EU that have hit a high record of unemployment and the Syrian humanitarian crisis, we must understand that these Nations need Jesus as their answer.
Strongholds in these nations need to be subjected to the authority of the Power in the Name of Jesus.
As one body united in Christ, let us lift these nations in prayer in the Name of Jesus and seek God’s face for Divine Intervention and a great outpouring of God’s spirit to bless these nations Lands with His divine presence and reverse the curses that are invading these nations by providing divine strategies that His people can use and apply to these situations that call for divine intervention. We cannot forget our brothers and sisters who live in other parts of the world so as intercessors, we have to shift from just being local-minded intercessors and become more united and be more international and global-minded in our prayer life. We are all connected as one body so if one part of the body hurts, it affects the rest of its members, in the same way what happens in one nation affects other nations whether we choose to acknowledge that as the truth or not.
Let us lift the Name of Jesus higher and cry out for His name to Bless the land, Amen!
