Daily Devotional – 7/18/16 – “At the name of Jesus!”


Sometimes in the face of chaos, confusion and calamity; you need to just take a moment and call on the name of God. Yea, every chance you get, you ought to cry out to God in your loudest voice, letting everything around you know whose you are and who you believe in. You do believe in God don’t you? Beloved, the bible says in James 2:19, “You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.” Now, if demons shake at the thought of God, what do you think they’ll do if you call His name in the midst of the hell you’re going through? Jesus! Baby, I just believe that by calling on the name of Jesus, it’ll make the enemy let go of my stuff. I’m spiritually crazy enough to believe that calling on the name of the Lord will make the enemy tremor in his spirit, making him let me go. Think about it, when you’re trembling it’s hard to hold on to stuff. When you’re shaking in fear, you can barely think right to hold your composure. When you’re unsteady, it’s hard to keep a grasp on things. So, if this is the case and this is what happens to the enemy when I call on the name of the Lord; why wouldn’t I do it?


I don’t know about you but I’m tired of the enemy taking my stuff. I’m sick of the enemy grabbing a hold of me and my family. I am fed up with the boldness of the enemy. And if calling on the name of God, shakes him loose; I have no problem doing it. Look, the enemy will make you think he has control of the situation you’re in but baby, if God wanted you to lose your mind and if God wanted you dead; you’d be there by now. Stop looking at the darkness as a punishment from God when in fact it’s purpose. There isn’t anything that goes on, in the lives of believers that God don’t know about and allow. God ordains everything that happens to His children. How do I know? Well, If God designed our path, clearly He designed the mile markers of trouble along them and just like mile markers; they don’t last long for you to dwell on. This is why you have to get to a point where you trust God in the good and the bad. This is why you have to get comfortable calling on the name of Jesus, even if it’s in places you wouldn’t normally. You have to get to a place in your life where you believe in the God you serve, call on His name and trust Him to do that which you’re asking. Because the bible says in Deuteronomy 28:7, “The LORD will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!” Do you believe it?

Trust God

Daily Devotional – 5/28/15 “At the name of Jesus!”

Don’t you know that at the name of Jesus, demons flee? Don’t you know that at the name of Jesus, battles that are waged against you won’t prosper? Don’t you know that at the name of Jesus, closed doors don’t stop your elevation? Don’t you know that at the name of Jesus, healing can be performed in the midst of your living room? Don’t you know that at the name of Jesus, deliverance can take place on your job? Don’t you know that at the name of Jesus, addictions that you’ve had for 15 years can be snatched from your mouth in the blink of an eye? Don’t you know that at the name of Jesus, He can keep your body intact when it should have been broken in that car accident? Don’t you know that at the name of Jesus, He can keep your mind when you should have been crazy? At the name of Jesus; He can comfort you when feel confused, rock you when you feel like your life is in ruins, shift you when you feel like you’re sinking and carry you when all you feel like doing is crawling. At the name of Jesus; problems no longer persist, anger is annulled, bitterness is broken, resentment finds a resolution and weakness is withdrawn. Baby, at the name of Jesus …

See, I’ve found that it doesn’t matter that man may close a door because at the name of Jesus; He’ll make stairs for you to climb. It doesn’t matter that the enemy tries to block your blessings because at the name of Jesus, what He has for you, it’s already yours. It doesn’t matter that folk talk about you because at the name of Jesus, His word precedes you and He’ll make your name great. It doesn’t matter that you’ve fallen before because at the name of Jesus, it only matters that you get up! It doesn’t matter that folk don’t know your story because at the name of Jesus, they’ll get to see His glory. It doesn’t matter that folk try to throw salt in your game, shade on your vision or obstacles on your path because at the name of Jesus … no weapons formed against you shall prosper! That’s bible! In Luke 10, when Jesus appointed the 72 to go ahead of Him into the towns He was about to go into; the bible says in Luke 10:17, “When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!” Ha! Baby, at the name of Jesus, we have power! Power to cease the enemy, power to shut up the naysayers, power to turn on light in dark places, power to get out of dead-end situations, power to get healing out of death sentences, power to get a case dismissed when it should have been jail time and power to get a yes when we know it should have been no! All we have to do is use the power of Jesus’ name! We have the power to use it if we belong to Him. Do you belong to Jesus? I don’t know about you but I need this kind of power, what about you?
