Ephesians 1:17-20  (read as a prayer for self)

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you (me) the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you (I) may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your (my) heart may be enlightened in order that you (I) may know the hope to which he has called you (me), the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us (me) who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,

This chapter contains the reason we are studying IN THE NAME OF JESUS:   It is to KNOW what the Word of God has to say about the power and authority of the name of Jesus, all that backs up the name, and the reasons we are given and should use HIS NAME.

#1.  Jesus obtained His name when Jesus conquered sin and death by His authority. (More on this later!)   His name is not some good luck charm and is not to be used lightly.  Jesus experienced all we face.  (Hebrews 4:15)  He defeated principalities (orders of angels), powers, dominions, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness  (Ephesians 6:12)  Heaven, earth and hell understand what Jesus did!  We must understand Jesus spiritual death and His payment for our penalty (justice) as our Substitute to comprehend the authority He gives us.
Colossians 1:13  “For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,”
Therefore, Satan, has no authority!

Example was given using a piece of carpet.  
As believers we live on earth (piece of carpet),  Satan must accept our decision to follow Christ.  When God calls us to “GO” to a new area (off the carpet) we are met with resistance.  

Another example was a Whack-a-Mole game.  

Every time we as believers attempt to dare to come out of hiding and follow Christ, Satan “whacks” us back down to keep us under his control, to prevent us from following the great commission and using our power of attorney to bring salvation to a dying world.  

Sometimes Warriors Wear Heels by Danna Homan, Sept 18, 2016 post

This article written by a warrior, illustrates us entering the prayer room as kittens and coming out as lions.   This is a picture of intercessory prayer and of prayer warriors taking back territory stolen by the Thief

Philippians 4:8-9  Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Prayer and faith do not aid us if we do not control our thought life.   In the words of Ann Graham Lotz in her book The Daniel Prayer, we must filter everything through the “lens of love not the lens of our circumstance.”  To do this we must know the Word.  In knowing the Word we can put God in re-membrance of His Word.  We will speak wisely.  When we think wrong things, we speak wrong things and speaking the wrong things (negative) brings defeat.

Kenneth Hagin wrote, “Those who are mighty in prayer are those who remind God of His promises and bring His Word before Him.”

Smith Wigglesworth is quoted as saying, “God delights in His children having the audacity of faith to say, ‘God You have promised it, so now, do it.’”

About Yvonne Jones

I am at heart, a LIFEguard: "big" sister, mama, grandmother, aunt, friend, swimming coach, lifeguard trainer, and registered nurse. I am in the business of alleviating fear through education and lots of hand holding. As a swimming instructor, I have taught people of all ages to overcome fear of the water and I marvel as fear gives way to fearlessness, as panic turns to pure joy, as tears dissolve into giggles of glee, and pennies retrieved from the bottom of the abyss become trophies. As a nurse, I have been privileged to walk up to Heaven's gate as patients and family are welcomed home, witnessed the miracle of birth, helped mend broken hearts, and cared for the elderly as they wait.Scriptures number one admonition is "fear not." Question is HOW??? The Word becomes our swimming instructor and can help us learn to "tread water til Jesus comes." Something my students often thought I was going to make them do!So welcome to my pool! Jump in the cool water. Let it refresh your soul and feel the unseen hands of the Master Lifeguard lift you up and out of the deep water. Who knows, you just might even walk on water!
