Only One Name

Where two or more
Are gathered in His name
He is there
For all who come
Who run to Him in faith
He is there, He is there

There is power
In the name of Jesus
There is power
Power in His name
One name, one name can save
One name breaks every chain
One name, always
One name: Jesus
  Excerpt from "There is Power" by Lincoln Brewster

Oh, how much I love this song. Chills run through my veins at the sound of these words...that there is power in the name of Jesus. 

Sometimes, in the messiness of life, we forget about the source behind all of life. We forget that there is a God who is so much greater than ourselves, that even when life starts going downhill and things start to look hopeless, there is still hope, because there is a God that can bring possibility to the most impossible of situations.

Recently, this song has really been running through my mind. I've heard about the most awful of situations, particularly stories of children with cancer. How sad it has been to hear about such stories, but I couldn't even imagine being in their place! So I've been coming to Jesus in prayer, with full trust and faith that He can bring healing and peace to the situation. God has spoken to me about starting a prayer notebook, where I can keep track of my prayers and how God has faithfully answered them. 

Because one thing I've learned, throughout all the years of my life, is the power of prayer. I remember, as a little girl, knowing that God is real because He would answer my prayers. 

But as we get older, doubt starts to creep in. We start to doubt His faithfulness and maybe even His presence. We may even begin to think that we'd be better off living life on our own.

Friends, let me tell you, if you are thinking such thoughts, stop. Look around. The sun still rises every morning at the same time. The moon still shines every night. The trees still grow, the animals still find food, and most importantly, the word of God still remains. In a world of disorder and chaos, there is still consistency. God, who is full of never-ending, constant love for you, still brings consistency to life. He is real. It is as evident as can be. 

So I've learned to come to Him in prayer, and to trust that there is power in His Name. 

Who can open the eyes of the blind and heal those who cannot hear?

Who can cast out demons out of the possessed and bring new beginnings to those far gone?

Who can lead the drug addicts, the alcoholics, and those who are set to persecute Christians, to a new life: a life of redemption, and of grace, and of following our Creator?

His Name is Jesus. There is only One Name who can save, One Name always. There is so much power in His Name. 

So whatever has been consuming your thoughts, give it to God. The word 'impossible' is not included in the dictionary of Heaven. God's love will never change and He has all of the power to bring healing, redemption, and new beginnings to any situation. Know that He hears your prayers and that He is moving in your life and in the lives of those around you, working for the 'good of those who love Him'.

If He can defeat death and come back from the dead, then the same power, who is living inside of those who have believed in Him, is moving in your life too. He can lead the 'too far gone' to Him. He can heal those who are sick or hurting. 

The power of prayer is huge. Most of all, the power of God surpasses all. Present your requests to Him, and have faith. He's been around for all eternity. Just trust Him.

His power is working in your life.
And that's a reason to celebrate. That's a reason to have hope.
Such a hope is only found in One Name: Jesus.

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Mark 11:22-24
