Power of attorney is defined as the authority to act for another person in specified matters. We have actually as born again Christians been given the power of attorney to use the name of Jesus. We act in His name. When we affirm anything or make a decree in the Name of Jesus, it’s as though Jesus Himself decreed it. We speak for Him, or speak in His place, when we use the Name of Jesus.
We don’t beg with the Name of Jesus!!!!
I can’t imagine going to a Government Parastal in the name of the President of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari and be begging to be given a listening ear. Like, Buhari sends me to get a document or two from Ministry of Education and he has called in advance to make them aware of my arrival and I get there and still have to beg them to listen to me? Impossible!!!!!
The Bible has made us understand in Psalm 24:1 that “The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” and in Phillipians 2:9-10 we are assured that “God also hath highly exalted Jesus, and given Him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things on earth, and things under the earth”.
You have the most powerful Name in all the universe at your disposal to use at will, don’t use it to beg, don’t use it to worry, don’t use it to cry, don’t use it to pity yourself.
Instead use the name of Jesus to put the devil and his demons, sin, sickness, death, joblessness, limitation, depression and even death in their place- defeated! And then use the same Name to establish yourself in the triumphant life, in all round success, health, prosperity, and joy. Use it to make your life glorious!!!!!!
