Philippians 2:9-11 – Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father.
Beloved, there is a name which is above every name, of things in heaven and things on earth. That name is a name to which every knee must bow, and a name that takes precedence over sickness, pain, relational failures, addictions, lack of any kind, depression and despair, and yes, dear ones, even hopelessness. This name is Jesus, the Son of God. This Jesus was God come to earth in the form of a man but He went to the cross and was crucified for you and for me that we might become the righteousness of God through Him. He could have called down legions of angels to deliver Him from this ultimate sacrifice, but because of His great love for us, He suffered the crucifixion. And now through His life, death and resurrection we can proclaim that by His stripes we are healed and we have been reconciled to God.
Scripture says in Acts 4:12 – Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Jesus is the door to salvation, He is your Saviour. Jesus is the great physician, He is your Healer. Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor, give Him your broken mind. Jesus is Your peace, rest in Him today. Yes, Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). Let Him be your help and hope wherever you are on your spiritual journey.
What do you have need of today? Is there an impossible-looking situation looming over your life? Was the report you just received from the doctor more than you can bear? Are your relationships in shambles with pain at every turn? Have you lost your way or given up entirely? I say of a truth, Jesus is the answer for every need, no matter how desperate it may seem, or how long the suffering. These words of inspiration are for you this very moment. These words of encouragement are divinely inspired and sent from my heart to yours if you are hurting or in distress of any kind. If you don’t know Jesus, the Savior, might you take a moment to acquaint yourself with Him. Ask Him to come into your heart, to forgive your sins, and be the Lord of your life. Once you do this, you are on the path of the greatest adventure of your life. For scripture says in Romans 8:31-32 – What shall we then say to these things, If God be for us, who can be against us: 32 He that spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Yes, it’s a beautiful passage of scripture, a powerful promise for sure, but you must meditate on the keyword condition of verse 32 which is “with him”. You must by faith accept Jesus as your Saviour. His sacrifice for us is a gift given freely but you must receive it into your life personally. You must by faith trust in Him to do all He has promised and allow Him to work out the good plan He has for your life. Life will always have problems, pain and suffering, but with Jesus as your Saviour, He will make a way where there seems no way, and by His grace He will see you through.
My friends, an intimate, loving relationship with Jesus, our Lord, is a journey to last a lifetime. Please understand it is a relationship that must be cultivated and nurtured. He wants us to fellowship with Him through prayer. He wants us to learn of Him through reading of His word. He wants us to enjoy our journey with Him, to give love and receive love, and above all, to share our testimony to the world around us of how He saved us and all He’s brought us through. Scripture says nothing shall be able to separate us from the love of Christ (Romans 8:35), and that even to our old age He will carry us (Isaiah 46:4). Trust in Him, live for Him, rejoice over Him. Wake up in the morning with a new song of praise and worship in your heart. His word says He sets the solitary in families (Psalms 68:6), are you lonely today? His word says He gives strength and power to His people (Psalms 68:35), are you feeling weak and out of control? Whatever your need this day, dear ones, His word says in Psalms 68:19 – Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Be blessed this day and keep the faith.
In His Love,
