When we have a problem, the first thing we should do is use the precious name of Jesus. Stamp his name all over the situation. The next step might be to take the appropriate follow-on action. If we have back pain, we can take an Advil, but we should drop the name of Jesus first. Here is the order we should follow: a problem occurs, stamp the name of Jesus on it, and then take the appropriate action.
Faith Comes By Hearing (Romans 10:17)
We can listen to ourselves talk about cancer so much that it appears we have more faith in it than in the name of Jesus. This applies to car repairs, struggling marriages or failing finances. If we hear ourselves drop the name of Jesus, our faith in him and his name will grow.
Our faith is built up by what we hear (Romans 10:17) and our life is driven by what flows from our heart and out of our mouth (Proverbs 4:23). So we need to guard our heart if we want our faith to grow in the right area.
Do The Right Thing Long Enough To See Results
We don’t plant watermelon seeds and then see a harvest the next day. We need to stand firm in the name of Jesus and keep doing our part until we see our request manifest. Our part is to speak faith instead of doubt over our circumstances.
So we must not grow weary in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)
Jesus, We Drop Your Name On All Situations. AMEN!
Lord, we praise your MIGHTY and MATCHLESS name. Jesus, you are the answer for our every need (Philippians 4:19). Thank you for standing with us and never leaving us (Deuteronomy 31:6). We drop your name on all situations and stand firm that you are working behind the scenes to work things out for our good (Romans 8:28). We are in it for the long haul, and we will not give up! Amen!
