I Samuel 17:44-46

Just Show Up and Collect Miracles


1 Samuel 17:44-46 the Philistine also said to David come to me and I will give your flesh to the birds of the sky and the beasts of the field then David said to the Philistine you come to me with a sword a spear and a javelin but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts the God of the armies of Israel whom you have taunted this day the Lord will deliver you into my hands and I will strike you down and remove your head from you and I will give the dead bodies of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the sky and the wild beasts of the earth that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel David said I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts I got a revelation when I began thinking about that what does it mean to come in someone’s name a lot of times we just use that phrase very lightly when we’re praying for example we just pray and then we conclude our prayer by saying in the name of Jesus Amen well what does that really mean for many people it sort of means I don’t have any more to say I’m concluding my prayer now but what in the name of someone actually means is I come as their representative I come with a power of attorney to represent that person imagine if you had a power of attorney from a very wealthy billionaire and you got to use his name you could go access his bank account you could use his private jet why because he gave you authority to do that in his name when you went to his bank and you asked to withdraw money they say who are you? you would say you know my name is inconsequential it doesn’t matter I come in the name of this person now who is more powerful a welathy human billionaire or Yeshua the Messiah the son of God He gave us His name to use David understood what it meant to use the name of Yahweh it’s interesting in Numbers 6 God instructed the leaders Aaron and Moses of Israel to put His name on the people what does that mean? that means to declare His name over them His authority, His power His covering, His protection so what does it mean in the name of Jesus in the name of Yeshua it means Father I’m standing here today not as myself but as though I were your son the son of God Yeshua Ha Mashiach because He’s given me His authority to use His name that is more powerful than the authority that David had but David understood his job was just to show up and collect miracles really that was his primary job he didn’t have to go out there and have a bigger sword than the giant he was facing he just needed to understand the covenant that he had the authority of the name he had been given and to use that name and that’s what he did he said I don’t come to you with bigger weapons than you have I’m obviously not a bigger person than you are I obviously don’t have more military experience than you do you come with all your military weapons I just come in the name of the Lord and that was what defeated that giant so today I encourage you use the name of the one who has given you power of attorney as you go through your day recognize I’m not a private person I have a charge as an ambassador I’ve been given a name that I represent and as you go through your day today I encourage you use that name expect to go through life collecting miracles like David did defeating ones that are much more powerful much bigger than you that things that people say are impossible are absolutely possible because of the name that you’ve been given so let’s just pray Father would you give me a revelation today of the name that you have given me the name of Yeshua Messiah Jesus the Messiah the son of God Father show me how in what ways it’s appropriate for me to use that name and expect to walk through life collecting miracles today that you have apportioned for me thank you father there are divine appointments with people divine circumstances that you’ve arranged today and I receive them in the name of Yeshua Amen
