These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God (1 John 5 :13).
Thank God for the name of Jesus! It is the most powerful name in the universe. It carries power. That’s why the demons flee when they hear that name; they hate it. But do you believe what I’ve just said about His name? That’s the secret ingredient in this verse: believe in His name. Do you, in time of need, use His name and then wonder if anything is going to happen? Let’s be honest. You don’t believe.
Where I live right now, the Vendee, has a cloud of darkness over this department that is so thick it seems impenetrable. So I have to walk around, do my shopping, drive my car, saying “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus” under my breath in order to prevent all the little difficulties the little demons are creating all the time. When I do that, I can actually feel the open heaven above me. Perhaps some of you should try it.
Have you also noticed that Jesus is the only one of the Trinity who has a name? The other two have an identity, but not a name. However, since the three are one, when we use the name of Jesus, all three of them respond! We’ve got protection up, down and inside out! All in a name! Pretty simple, isn’t it?
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
