Jesus Christ's Name is Total Provision
"Nor is there any salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
Jesus Christ gave us the power of His name to live by and to operate in. The name of Jesus is the greatest, most powerful name in existence (Philippians 2:9). The authority given by Jesus permits us to take action on His behalf (John 14:16). It is by faith in Jesus Christ’s name that we are saved, given the gift of the Holy Spirit, set free from the bondage of sin, given total provision and continuous supply for all things, healed and made whole.
Speaking His name activates the Holy Spirit, our gift within, to be our helper, to give us the ability to believe in miracles, to form faith ideas and to open the door to the supernatural. It is up to us to develop a mindset of supernatural increase, peace, restoration and authority over ‘all things’ by Jesus Christ’s name (Psalm 20:7). The move of the Spirit is for daily energy, strength, increase and opportunities. It is not a religion; it is a way of life.
The words of Jesus “I have chosen you, you haven’t chosen Me” is a personal revelation that it is He in us and not by self-effort, chance or ability that He called us to be His (John 15:16). Without this revelation, we continue our story of how we accepted Jesus based on this circumstance and that circumstance.
Many believe that religion is the human attempt to find God. True life is discovering God, who came down to earth in human form, named Himself Jesus Christ. I know that I am God’s creation, and He upholds all things by the word of His power. I am one of His ‘all things’. Upholds means provided and protected, it is activated by speaking His name.
I like to review the story and the results of the lame man in Acts 3:1-10. Peter and John were going into the Temple for prayer. Each day a man, lame from birth, was put beside the Temple gate so he could beg for money. When he saw Peter and John coming to the Temple, he asked them for money. Peter and John looked at him intently and said. “Look at us.” Because the lame man expected to receive money, he eagerly looked at them. Peter told the man he had no money to give, but would give him what he had. Peter took hold of his hand, commanded him to rise and walk in Jesus Christ’s name (faith action). The man’s act of faith opened the doorway to receive what Peter possessed, the Holy Spirit. Immediately the lame man was healed and strengthened. He entered the Temple with Peter and John walking, leaping and praising God. Because of Jesus Christ’s name, the lame man stood before them whole.
Salvation, wholeness, strength and soundness are only a word and a move away. The lame man didn’t go to a class on religion, get counseling about his past or try to figure out why he was lame. Action is to confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart we are saved (Romans 10:9). Total provision and continuous supply in Christ is only a word and a leap away. God’s grace is always available and is based on His unconditional love. Peter did not have the power to heal on his own. It was by faith in the name of Jesus Christ that the crippled man became strong, perfectly sound and whole. Lord Jesus Christ, I call upon Your name; You are rich over me. I am saved, strong, sound and whole now. I walk, I leap and I praise God. I am available to be at the right place, at the right time, with the right attitude to receive the total provision and continuous supply of every promise. Amen. Jesus Christ is God’s name on earth for us to receive total provision and continuous supply. God has a way of meeting our needs by the meaning of His name. Consider Jesus Christ’s name and speak it often.
