HOW TO DISCOVER AND FULFIL YOUR PURPOSE

THE REASON YOU ARE THIS WAY, COULD BE YOUR NAME

, ,

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

All over the world, people bear names that represent different things. Some names represent personalities, landmarks or events, and they’re handed down from one generation to another. Many times, Christians have found themselves bearing names that contradict what they believe. Those names were handed to them by their forbears, and not many ever bothered to find out what they mean to be sure they’re consistent with who we are in Christ.

It’s no use answering the name that contradicts what you believe about the Gospel and who you are in Christ, for it can work against you. The name you answer is a major confession in your life. As you answer that name you’re continually confessing the meaning of that name. If you study the Bible, you’ll notice how God changed the names of several people. Before their names were changed, they lived the life of the name they bore. When God changed their names, their destinies also changed.

Abraham, for example, which means father of many, used to be called Abram, meaning “exalted or assumed father” (Genesis 17:5). He and his wife were without a child until their names changed to Abraham and Sarah. Isaac’s son, Jacob is another example. His name meant “one that takes by the heel; deceiver.” In today’s rendition, that would mean, “swindler, fast guy, or scammer.” Of course, he grew up to answer his name; he deceived his father, cheated his brother, and remained a cheat until God met him and changed his name (Genesis 32:27-28).

To answer a name means that you agree to, confess and endorse the meaning and import of that name in your life. That’s why you ought to answer only names that are consistent with God’s purpose for you; names that glorify God’s Word and are consistent with your identity and position as a new creation in Christ Jesus.

    I was given the name Rosen by my parents. This means a garden of rose flowers. Everything went well and sweet until I reached my forties.

    Things started to change and one prophetess told me in 2018 that God says I am Deborah (Judges 4 and 5). Little did she know that I was fighting for the lost chieftaincy and kingdom in my family. To me this gave me confidence, knowing that it is God’s plan and purpose for me to fight and this gives me confidence that I will win this battle. Because the battle belongs to God, victory is for sure! Thank you!
