“And Asa cried out to the Lord his God, and said, ‘Lord, it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power; help us, O Lord our God, for we rest on You, and in Your name we go against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You!’” II Chronicles 14:11 NKJV

An Ethiopian army of a million men and three hundred chariots came out against the Israelites in the time of Asa. Asa had no experience in war because God gave him rest. Asa didn’t have a large army to fight the Ethiopians; God was his only hope, and so he prayed: he said, “in Your name we go against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You!” The Bible says that the Lord struck the Ethiopians before Asa and Judah, and the Ethiopians fled. The Bible says that the Ethiopians were overthrown, and they could not recover, for they were broken before the Lord and His army. Hallelujah! Your enemies will not recover in the name of Jesus!

When David fought Goliath, he said to him, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with 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 defied.” Peter said to the lame man, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”

Brothers and sisters, when you function in His name mountains will crumble before you! When you’re given a task that is greater than your natural abilities; when you’re confronted with challenges that seem so great; that’s not the time to panic; understand that He has authorized you to function in His name; in other words, you are His representative here on earth! When you show up in His name, He too will show up, the hosts of heaven will manifest, He will back you up, and God will be glorified! There is always victory when we go in His name. Amen!
