A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: It’s Not Your Name [27/02/2017]
And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name. Isaiah 62:2. Read: Isa 62:1-4
When you go through the Bible, you discover that there are many people who their names are known and mentioned. There are other people who were simply recognized and mentioned by their problems. Their problems took and overshadowed their names. The Bible never made mention of their names but their problems. Their problems made them popular. Many lives have been stigmatized. In 2 Ki 5:1-14, the Bible talks about general Naaman who was a great man of Valor, but he was a leper. He was not supposed to live where men live but in an isolated place, but because of his importance, the king of Syria could not isolate him. The woman with the issue of blood is known by her problem, the Bible never mentioned her name. She was healed by Jesus Christ, her name was still not mentioned. Mk 5:25-34
Have you been answering that name because of your problem? Have they nicknamed you by your problem? Stop answering it because it’s not your name. God said He will give you a new name. ‘But’ is a stigma and God will remove every ‘BUT’ in your life in Jesus name. God has changed your name from failure to success in Jesus name. From today, begin to answer the new name God has given you – Hephzibah.
- Father, thank you for changing my name from sorrow to Joy, barreness to fruitfulness, from trouble to peace in Jesus name.
