There is something powerful about that name—Jesus. Whenever you are going through a difficult time, call on Jesus. In the midst of your storm, when the red sea is in front of you and pharaoh’s army is behind you, call on Jesus. If you do not feel well in your body and need a miracle, cry out Jesus. When you are going through challenges and you do not feel like praying, call on Jesus. When you call on Jesus, your circumstance changes, when you cry out Jesus, demons tremble. When you cry out Jesus, the pain in your body goes away. When you cry out Jesus, you get delivered and set free from infirmities and deformities. If you can have only one word in your vocabulary, that word should be Jesus. “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Phil. 2:10-11).
Do you need a miracle? Are you going through something and need extra help from God? Do you feel lost, confused, and depressed? I challenge you to call on Jesus. When you call on Jesus, your situation and circumstance will change. Satan hates it when you call on the name of Jesus. When you say Jesus, you are saying, “Greater is He [Jesus] that’s in me than he that’s in the world” (1 John 4:4). When you say Jesus you saying, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13, emphasis added). When you say Jesus you are saying, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper” (Is. 54:17, emphasis added). When you say Jesus, you are saying that you might be “hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Cor. 4:8,9).
When you know the God that you serve, you have no reason to be afraid of anything or anyone. He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End. He always was, He always is, and He always will be unmoved, unchanged, undefeated, and never undone. In fact, He is so great that the world cannot understand him, the armies cannot defeat Him, the schools cannot explain Him, Herod could not kill Him, the leaders cannot ignore Him, and Donahue cannot explain Him.When you fall, He lifts you up! When you fail, He forgives; when you are weak, He is strong. His strength perfects our weakness. When you are afraid, He is your encourager. When you are confused, He counsels you. When you stumble and fall (we fall down but we get up), He keeps you steady. When you are heartbroken, he mends your broken heart. When you are hurt, He is your healer. When you did not have anything to eat, He fed you. When your world was crashing down on you, He was besides you. When you faced problems and went through pain, He comforted you.
