She will bear a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus [the Greek form of the Hebrew Joshua, which means Saviour], for He will save His people from their sins [that is, prevent them from failing and missing the true end of scope of life, which is God]. Matthew 1:21 AMP

Today, some scriptures to meditate on. Be expectant that God will reveal more of the truth about His Son to you. 

There are also many other signs and miracles which Jesus performed in the presence of the disciples which are not written in this book. But these are written (recorded) in order that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ (the Anointed One), the Son of God, and that through believing and cleaving to and trusting and relying upon Him you may have life through (in) His name [through Who He is]. John 20:30-31 AMP

Believing and cleaving to and trusting and relying upon Him - what does that mean practically in our lives, in our thoughts, words and actions?

Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. Romans 8:36-37 AMP

Because of Jesus we are more than conquerors, and have a surpassing victory in every area of our lives. Some times we have to declare this in faith while we wait for the manifestation. Let's ask God for the strength and faith to make that declaration today and every day.

But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being. And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!

Therefore [because He stooped so low] God has highly exalted Him and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, that in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue [frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:7-11 AMP

Jesus - the name above all names. Let's choose to lift His name high today, above everything, declaring His goodness and faithfulness over every circumstance. There is no other name.
