What Is Your Name? 6
“Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.” Genesis 17:5
Abraham was believing God for children and but it was delayed, but after God changed his name as seen in our opening scripture, in one year he had Isaac.
For twenty-four years Abraham could not have a child. Even after God spoke, he still did not have a child until his name was changed. In one year of a changed name, they had a different result.
I believe the reason the Holy Spirit has emphasized on the importance of names is because there are some persons reading this devotional today who needs to change their names.
Stop giving excuses for your parents on why they gave you that name. It does not matter if your mother had a difficult birth, that does not mean you should answer a name that means, “Life is painful.” Change that name. If you don’t, you will see pain until your nick name will be called pain.
Jacob’s wife Rachael died as she gave birth to her second son so she called him Ben-oni which means ‘Son of Sorrow’ but his father changed that name and redeemed his destiny by calling him Benjamin meaning, ‘Son of my right hand’. (See Genesis 35:16-18)
If changing his name was important then, it is still important now for you to change that name with a bad meaning.
Please read 1 Chronicles 29:25 and 2 Chronicles 1:1 and ask God to magnify you exceedingly throughout this year in the sight of all people. Ask Him to take you to levels you have never been before.
For further study, read:
Mark 3:16, Luke 6:14, John 1:40-42.
Doing the Word.
Change that name with a bad meaning.
