Rhapsody of Realities 19 February
SCRIPTURE: And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him (Colossians 3:17).
The Name of Jesus never fails. That’s why the Bible says we must do all things in His Name. What does this mean? It doesn’t mean when you want to eat, for example, you say, “I eat this food in the Name of Jesus”; or anything you want to do, you say, “I do it in the Name of Jesus.” No! It’s not in the constant announcement.
Rather, what it means is that you’re living your life in the Name of Jesus in all situations, having the consciousness that you live for Him, in Him, and as His representative in all circumstances.
When you live in His Name, you’ll live in dominion over sickness, disease and infirmities. His Name is a place; a place of absolute victory and safety. That’s why Solomon said in Proverbs 18:10, “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” That was in the Old Testament.

Today, we don’t “run into” His Name; we live in His Name. His Name is named upon us. When you live in His Name, you have no fears. When you live in His Name, you live triumphantly over and above circumstances, evil, decadence, depravity, corruption and the perils of this world; you live in unending peace, prosperity, health, success and greatness, to the glory of the Father. Hallelujah!
PRAYER: I live triumphantly over and above circumstances, evil, decadence, depravity, corruption and the perils of this world because I live in the Name of Jesus. I live in perpetual peace, prosperity, health, success and greatness, to the glory of the Father. Blessed be God!
17 And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him.
19 Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.
John 14:13-14 NIV
13 And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I Am], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son.
14 [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I Am].
