The Power of Jesus Name

By Leann Albrecht

Philippians 2: 9-11  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, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

I’ve known there is power in the name of Jesus, not only because the Bible speaks of it, but also I’ve seen the Lord do mighty things when I pray, “in Jesus name”. However, not until recently did I experience that instantaneous power in my own body.

Carl and I had decided to take some much needed rest at a lake house a few hours away. The log home rested at the edge of a beautiful pool that overlooked miles of  lake and green rolling hills. The setting was picture perfect to rejuvenate our souls.

Instead of cooking one evening, we found a Mexican restaurant in a small town about 30 miles from our “paradise”. The waiter was prompt and within minutes we were face down in the chips, salsa and fresh cilantro….crunching and moaning at every bite. Jeans tight and tummies full, we paid the bill and headed back to the lake house to rest and savor the flavors still lingering in our mouth.  We took our time winding along the country back roads and marveling at the night sky, bursting with millions of stars.  

It couldn’t have been a more perfect evening until midnight when I roused with a terrible pain in the middle of my chest. It got worse and worse so I woke Carl. We got up, started praying and pacing the floor. I suddenly became weak and turned pale. The pain was accelerating to the point that it was becoming increasingly  difficult to breathe. I thought I was going to pass out. Frantic, I knew my condition had become critical and there was no help other than the Lord. If there was a hospital, it would have been in that small town some 30 minutes away.

In desperation, Carl ran downstairs to get a cup of hot tea for me. Suddenly, a strength rose up in me. I shouted out, “Lord, I believe your Word that says there’s power in your name. So right now, help me, Jesus!” To my amazement, the instant I said His name, the pain decreased by 30 percent! I could hardly believe it…but there was no doubt that something miraculous had just happened because I could suddenly breathe. So I said His name again, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. And each time I did, the pain dimishished.

By the time Carl returned with the tea, I was sitting on the edge of the bed, nearly normal. In disbelief, he said, “What has happened to you?” I told him how I began speaking the name of Jesus and I instantly began to feel better. Overcome with gratitude, we sat in silence to ponder  the miracle that just took place by the power of Jesus name. Finally at 1:30, we turned out the lights and fell asleep in a chamber of answered prayers.

This experience has taught me that I have a weapon that will slay the enemy. It is the precious name of Jesus and EVERY knee has to bow to His name..including pain and fear. Now as I go through my day, I say His name often. And each time I do, I am fully confident that He is there to meet my need…whatever it is.

Every time you call on the name of Jesus, the name that is above every name, you are calling on God Himself to save you. He is waiting to save you! No matter what circumstance you are in  or what crisis you may be facing….phycially, emotionally or financially….you can call on the name of Jesus, the Almighty God, to save you.

Prayer For Today:

Lord Jesus, because You are my Savior, there is no challenge or circumstance that can successfully defeat me. Thank you for saving me from all my sins and from every difficult situation. I receive your wisdom, provision and protection to deliver me and help me prosper in every situation that comes my way today. Thank you for your wonderful and powerful name, Jesus.
