Names are critical to human existence and function. Names are from the beginning the essence of a human's being. Every name gives a picture of the future and destiny of such one called by that name. Over the centuries and decades, men started using their present circumstances and predicament to give names to offsprings that came from their loins. For there to be a good name, that suggests to us that the opposite exists. A good name ( a good future and destiny) is to be chosen every time in life, than silver or gold (riches or wealth).
Everyone whether low class, middle class or high class is given a name, and such is the name that such person will be called and proclaimed throughout his or her lifetime. However, every man and woman has the opportunity of changing his or her name as an adult. Meaning, as soon as you come of age, your destiny is in your hands. You can choose to walk on the path that has been chosen for you unconsciously or you can chart another course for your life and destiny. Life and death is really in the power of the tongue, by your words you are justified and by your words you are condemned. You have to be quick to make choices and proclaim words that justify your destiny rather than condemn the life you are called to live.
No man was born a nonentity and no woman was born barren, by the words you accept to be called, that will program your choices and decisions and ultimately your destiny. Refuse any name that does not reflect your future, refuse every identity that is not your destiny. Reject any pet name that does not glorify the personality you will become. Life is in phases and you will become the fruit of your lips. Do not be contented with the person you are today, talk your way to greatness and honour and make daily choices that will get you there.
Jesus, the Son of God, even in His humility and love for us, never spoke down on the glory, honour, strength, riches, power, wisdom and blessing he possessed. He will rather tell the disciples and multitude He teaches how to obtain from the Father that which He possesses. Friends, Jesus spoke about everything He is and has become, even when He was but a carpenter's Son born in a manger. He spoke of His glory, death, power and majesty and I am a living testimony to all that He said about Himself to be true. Jesus today, has been given a name above every other name and in His name today, we possess our own inheritance in God.
Never be little yourself or talk down on the greatness on your inside. Life is in phases and every phase is a product of wordsmith spoken in the secret place and on the inside. Speak boldly and speak surely, for you are greater than where you are today. God bless you!
