Everything we do for God we do in the name of Jesus. As our character is being transformed into His image, we are growing from level to level in our ability to join with Him. We keep our eyes on the Lord, not ourselves. We realize that apart from Him, we can do nothing; but because we are a part of Him, all things are possible.
Sometimes we see how people trust in the name of an organization and walk with great confidence because the organization is backing them. It helps them to feel strong and secure because they are part of the organization and share in the influence of the name. How much greater should be our confidence in the Lord as we move in His name: His glory is our guard; His presence backs us up; we are surrounded by angels; the Spirit of Christ is upon us. With the authority we have in Christ, we pray for others and command all hindrances to their victory be removed.
We know that it’s not what we have that we use in His name, but what He has given us. We don’t know everything we need to know, but we trust that Almighty God is going to bring out of us what is needed as we walk in His name, from glory to glory!
Acts 3:6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”
