Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father Phil 2:9‐11
One of the most profound things about Christianity is the authority God has placed on Jesus. Whether anybody knows Him or not His authority affects all creation in heaven, in the earth and under the earth. This includes all people that have ever lived on earth; they all will bow to the name of Jesus.
For Christ to be granted this highly exalted position of authority, He earned it by His obedience to God the Father, the creator of all things. Scripture says and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Phil. 2:8. Christ laid down His life to do God’s will of saving all humanity from eternal condemnation. By His death on the cross, He bore the punishment of sin for all humanity.
When God was satisfied with the punishment for all sins, which is by death, He raised Christ up from the dead to mark new beginning, of a New Life for all who believe on Christ as their Lord and saviour. Therefore, because of His obedience to lay down His life for the many, God has put Him in charge of all things. He has exalted the name of Jesus above any other name named anywhere, in any society or religion.
His name has power and Authority over every situation in your life. Everything in you life is subject to the name of Jesus. At the Mention of Name of Jesus all situation have to bow.
Not knowing this truth does not nullify the authority Jesus has over anyone and everything, but aligning up to His authority benefits your life greatly. Consider how the decisions of a chancellor in power, by His financial budget report, can affect the smallest family in the country, whether that family knows it or not, whether they like the chancellor or not, his or her decisions will affect the way that family will live life.
Similarly, the influence of Jesus is upon everything. One day everything that has a name will bow in fear and reverence to the name of Jesus. One day every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of the father. One day everything in heaven, in the earth and under the earth, including the dead, will bow to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
If you have not yet submitted to the Lordship of Jesus, submit today and He will save you from the misery of life. One day you will, let it be today.
Today if you believe in Him as your Lord and saviour, everything in your life is subject to bow to the authority of Jesus Christ. If your sickness has a name, it must bow to the name of Jesus. Cancer will bow, tumours will bow, asthma will bow, and all sickness bows to the name of Jesus. So put everything in your life under the lordship of the name of Jesus.
Dear Heavenly Father, I submit to the Lordship of the Name of Jesus. I put my life, my career, my future under the authority of Jesus. I pray that I have the mind of Christ to submit to your will in everything you have planned for my life, in Jesus name I pray, amen.
