9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,
10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. - Philippians 2:9-11

There is no greater name than the name of Jesus. When your words are few because you are frustrated or overwhelmed, when you’re heartbroken or devastated, when you are filled with fear or discouragement, you simply need to utter His name, and you will feel His great power. When you don’t know how to pray because the trial you face is just too much, you only need to say His name to feel His manifest presence. His name alone can save our souls, heal our wounds, protect us in battle, comfort our hearts.  Jesus is the name above all names, He is our Lord. 

On our last day in meditation on this verse, my thoughts go back to my first reflections. I may not always understand the divisiveness that exists in this world, my heart often breaks at the chaos and the brokenness, but I do know one thing to be true. Jesus is the King of Kings. He is highly exalted over all, and one day, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is our Lord. There may be days I want to run and hide, but I know how the story ends and I know who wins - and that brings me such peace when my days are hard. 

Press on ~ you are loved 💗
