Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
Our name is very important. When my husband and I had our sons we named them specifically for what their names meant. Matthew means 'gift of God' and Jonathan means 'God has given'. Many people today name babies cute popular names or after a famous person. Your name is special. None of us wants to shame our family last name by doing something bad. Your name is with you for life unless you are undercover law enforcement or in the witness protection program. Often times a giving a person's name gives you certain benefits and privileges. Maybe a name is "dropped" to impress those you are with. In the long run those names may stay with a person but future generations may not have a clue of who the person was.
The only name that matters is the name of Jesus. There's power in that name. No other name can do what the name of Jesus does. Heal, deliver, set free, save. His name is wonderful!
PRAYER: Your name is above every name. I lift your name on high and love to sing your praises. I love you Jesus. In Jesus' name. Amen.
