“Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20 (KJV)
When you walk in your authority over the enemy and see him scatter, you may feel happy that you have the power to put evil spirits on the run. While this is cause for rejoicing, Jesus gives us a greater cause for celebration–your name is written in heaven! To some, their initial response to hearing that is a low sounding “yippee” and one toss of confetti. Many of us get more excited over receiving a new car or a new house than we are that our names are written in the Lamb’s book of Life. No matter what you are going through here on earth, go through it knowing that your name is in the book! Your God is on your side, He is your Peace, He is your Provider, your Healer, your Banner, your Righteousness, your Defense and your Strength. Just as He was Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, He is with you! Just as He was with Daniel, He is with you! Just as He was with those three Hebrew boys in the fire, He is with you! Your name is in the book and He knows you by name. Rejoice and shout the victory!
Prayer: Father, I rejoice in You! My name is written in heaven. I am in the book of life! Thank You Lord for stirring Your joy within me and giving me cause to celebrate! Thank You for writing my name in the book. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
