Rejoice in the “Name”!

Scripture reading for March 20th:  1st Samuel 15-19

Key Scriptures: 1st Samuel 17:45-47  “David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the Name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.  This day the Lord will hand you over to me, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head.  . . .and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel.  All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s and He will give all of you into our hands.””

David knew His God and the power of His Name!  He used that authority of God’s Name to declare a victory over a Philistine giant named Goliath!  He declared that the Lord would save Israel and win with supernatural power!

Rejoice in the Name of Jesus:  Jesus gave His followers His Name and killed our giant enemy Satan! “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 confess Jesus Christ as Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”  (Philippians 2:9-11)
