“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2: 9 – 11
One word. One powerful earthquaking word – Jesus.
At some point we find that it’s the only word for the dire situation we’re in.
The only word that can help.
The only word that matters.
The only word we need.
Why is his name so powerful?
The name of Jesus carries the full force that created the universe; with just his word. “Let there be light.” That’s all it took and it came into existence.
His name invokes the One who spoke and blind saw; crippled ran.
I need his name when I’m blind to see my next turn in life or when crippling thoughts threaten to take me out. It’s ok; I let them take me down. Down to my knees where I can cry out once again to that powerful name – Jesus. In my one word prayer, I plead with him to come and help me. And he is there. “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
