In My name
John 14:12-14 – Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
Have you ever had access to something or some place because you knew someone? And they perhaps said, yeah sure, just use my name and they’ll let you. It’s like some exclusive VIP ticket.
This is the same, but better. Jesus is giving us authority to use His name to perform His good work. He doesn’t want us to be afraid to call on Him because He knows that when we do, and when He performs that miracle, God will get all the glory.
When I pray, I use His name more than any other word – He gave me the authority and a promise is a promise so why not?!
Use your VIP ticket, friends. Use the access to Jesus Christ that He has so freely given to us. Use it when you’re praying for healing, restoration and guidance. Use it in every situation you ever find yourself.
