His Name Over Us

20th NOVEMBER 2022

The question that precedes this reply is a common one among Christians. We mostly cry to God, “Let me see your glory”- a mirror of Moses’ plea, “Please show me your glory” (Exodus 33:18). God replies by saying He will make His goodness known and His name proclaimed.

The glory of God rests in His name, and the acts of compassion and graciousness are expressions of that name. What a mighty God we serve!

To say that as believers, we are at war in this world, is probably an understatement. Not only do we have to fight physical battles every so often, the Bible tells us that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but spiritual entities of wickedness. This is why we need the covering of the name of the LORD over us always. Now, which name has been revealed to be the ultimate name, according to the scriptures? Therefore, God has also highly exalted Him and bestowed upon Him a name which is above every name; That at the name of JESUS every knee should bow, of beings in heaven and on earth and under the earth, And every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST is Lord to the glory of God the Father [Philippians 2:9–11].

When we proclaim the name of JESUS over our lives through prayer and total surrender to His will, we ultimately proclaim His glory over our lives. To proclaim His name is also to walk worthy of His calling upon our lives. When we were grafted into God’s family by accepting Jesus Christ (Romans 8:15), we bore His identity and glory. Consequentially, when we continue in this stead, others get the chance of seeing that glory too.

The zenith of our lives as believers is to show forth God’s glory, and we can do that by proclaiming His name over our lives!
