“In My Name”
“In My Name”
This is what the Lord said we would do.
Then He says this…
“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
“If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
Probably one of the most misunderstood and abused portions of the Word.
Whatever we ask in the Lord Jesus’ name He will do.
That Father may be glorified in the Son.
If we ask Him anything in His name, He will do it.
This is way beyond the perfunctory “in Jesus name” that is often used at the end of “prayer”.
- to having the mind of the Lord.
- to praying, listening and receiving to know what the Lord wants
- true prayer…not just a list of “wants”, but a communing and communication with the Most High whereby we know what He wants.
“In His name…” speaks of all that is entailed with Who God is.
He reveals Himself by His traits and characterizations.
Here are a few…
Yahweh (Lord, Jehovah)
El Elyon (The Most High God)
Adonai (Lord, Master)
El Shaddai (Lord God Almighty)
El Olam (The Everlasting God)
Jehovah Jireh (The Lord Will Provide)
Jehovah Rapha (The Lord Who Heals You)
Jehovah Nissi (The Lord Is My Banner)
El Qanna (Jealous God)
Jehovah Mekoddishkem (The Lord Who Sanctifies You)
Jehovah Shalom (The Lord Is Peace)
Jehovah Sabaoth (The Lord of Hosts)
Jehovah Raah (The Lord Is My Shepherd)
Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord Our Righteousness)
Jehovah Shammah (The Lord Is There)
When we pray “in His Name” we are praying “in Him”
We pray and receive His mind.
What do we usually do?
You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives,
so that you may spend it on your pleasures.
Pray with correct motive…receiving the Mind of the Lord.
Pray with correct purpose…the Kingdom, not desire of pleasures.
