Power in the Name of Jesus

John 14:13 – And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.

Lord, help me to write your words and what you have to say to me and others about this verse.  You know what we need to know.  I want these to be your words.  You said the words in this verse when you walked this earth as a human being.  Show us what we need to know about it.  In Jesus name, Amen!

There is power in the name of Jesus.  When we pray in His name, His power makes things happen.

There are things about myself that I need to change.  There are situations that need to be dealt with better.  Habits that need to be broken.  Better use of my time in certain areas.  Does that sound familiar to anyone?

When we pray about them and pray in Jesus name, His power is there.  It can break the chains holding us down.  Jesus sets us free.  He alone saves us.

Trying to do all of these things in our own power is so hard, we end up frustrated & giving up.  But when we do things with His power over the situation, it is freeing & easier to do.

Am I saying it will be easy always, no.  we have to keep our eyes on Him, especially in the storm.  If we take our eyes off of Him when things are tough, we tend to get negative & our attitude starts to stink.  If we stay focused on Him, we have a better attitude & stay more postive.  We also weather the storm better when He is in it with us.  He is always with us, but when He is in control, it is oh so much better.
