If you know Jesus, you’ve got nothing to worry about. Your success is guaranteed when you function in His Name.
TO THE BIBLE Philippians 2:9-11
“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Tyler loved to play the guitar, and he was quite gifted at it. He dreamed of becoming one of the world’s best guitarists someday. He couldn’t wait to enter the university so he could study music. Whenever he spoke of his ambition, his folks never failed to encourage him. They constantly stoked the fire of his dream.
But one day he heard someone say it was almost impossible for anyone to make headway in music if they didn’t know any “big names” in the music industry. Tyler thought for a while and realised he didn’t know a single person who was highly placed in the industry. But a moment later, his face suddenly lit up. “I know Jesus!” he exclaimed, “and I can use His name.” That was a eureka moment for Tyler!
He had more faith in the Name of Jesus. He knew God has highly exalted Him and given Him a Name that’s above every name; such that by the instrumentality of His Name, anything is possible. The Name of Jesus has power in all realms of life. It doesn’t matter what your circumstances are, you can get what you want in His Name. No obstacle can hinder you from reaching your dream. Use the Name of Jesus fearlessly. Declare today that you have the wisdom to be excellent and successful at whatever you do in His Name.
Speak: I live, and move, and have my being in Christ Jesus. I’m undaunted! I rebuke fear and failure, and I take on courage and strength in the Name of Jesus. By Him, I can do all things. Glory to God. Amen!
Act: State one thing you greatly desire in your academics and declare that you have it in Jesus’ Name.
