OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL. DATE: WEDNESDAY 23RD JUNE, 2021. THEME: THE NAME OF THE LORD.

MEMORISE:
“Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”
(Psalm 124:8)

BIBLE READING: Philippians 2:9-11 (KJV)

  1. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name;
  2. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
  3. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

MESSAGE:

When we call on the name of the Lord, we remind Him of what He has done in the past, which He is capable of doing over and over again.

At such times, when we call Him by the name that is associated with some specific wondrous deed of His, He is moved to repeat what He did initially and in greater dimension.

Each name of the Lord describes some of His attributes and what He is capable of doing among the children of men.

For example, the Lord’s name – Jehovah-Nissi – meaning the Lord is my banner (as in a war) speaks to the words “hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation”
(Exodus 17:16).

When you are confronted with a need that only God can meet and you call Him by His name – Jehovah-Jireh, you are reminding Him of His miraculous provision of a ram according to Genesis 22:13-14.

When you call on the name of Jesus Christ in faith, you get miracles. This is because the name of Jesus Christ has been highly exalted, according to today’s text.

For example, the Almighty God sent an angel to announce to Joseph what name the miraculous child should bear that is, Jesus, and gave the reason for it:…for he shall save his people from their sins. – (Matthew 1:21)

The greatest thing the name of the Lord Jesus Christ does to humanity is the work of salvation.

The Bible says:
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.(Acts 4:12)

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; it is a shield and a sure defence against demonic attack.

When someone is genuinely associated with the name of the Lord, the fellow will live a victorious life without limitation.

The Bible also says:

And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.(Mark 16:17)

Every knee bows and every tongue confesses that Jesus is Lord (Romans 14:11).

This is the reason those who are genuinely saved cannot be attacked successfully by demons.

My prayer is that as many as are reading this devotional today are delivered from all forms of demonic oppression in the name of Jesus Christ.

However, whoever wants that name to work for him or her must surrender to the Lordship of the Owner of the name.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, let every evil knee and tongue bow to the Lordship of Jesus Christ concerning my life, home, work and business in Jesus’ name.
