Name Above Every Name

How wonderful
How beautiful
Name above every name
Exalted high
How wonderful
How beautiful
Jesus Your name
Name above every name
Jesus

(Beautiful Saviour by Planetshakers)

Last Tuesday, I helped out in Singapore Awakening (a wave of prayer for Singapore as a nation for God). And as I sang those words ‘Jesus Your name, name above every name’, God whispered: My name is higher than ___ (that certain law firm that you are thinking about).

It was amazing to understand such a revelation. To me, this song had always been Jesus is above everything. But I had never stopped to ask myself what a name meant to me. And it was so comforting to know that God was reminding me to put Him first. On my priority list, the first name should be Jesus.

What do you define as a name? Let’s narrow it down, what is the name to you? What is the first name that you think of?

A name could be literally a person’s name; it could be someone else’s or your own. A brand. A title. A position. A reputation. 

To a working person, it might be your position in your company.

To a mother, it might be your children.

To a student, it might be your grades, or all those glorious skyscraper offices and the company names that flash the words SUCCESS MONEY GLAMOUR.

To many, it could be your identity.

May we always be reminded of how perfect and beautiful Jesus is, and that He is worthy of being placed first in our lives, above all names.
