We are given names by our parents since on the day we were born. This name is our trademark. The trademark that we build through our behaviour. The trademark that is built through remodelling by our environment. Name that is full of potential. Name that is beautiful. Name that makes wonder in your whole being. Our name is where we belong in our capacity. AND these are the reality in this world.
Decree and Declarations
You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways. When they cast you down, and you say, ‘Exaltation will come! ’ Then He will save the humble person.
Job 22:28-29 NKJV
As Christian, I do believe that there is power in making declarations and decrees upon your life that will align you with God’s words. Job 22:28-29 is telling us about the power in our authority as Christians in declarations and decreeing a word or thing in your life. It will manifest as you pronounce. Christians do believe in the power of tongue .
Whatever we pronounce from our mouth, it shall be done as it says so. This how spoken blessing does good to those who hear it. When you speak goodness and blessing to others, you direct God’s goodness to them; you intercede for them—-“stand in the gap” for them as you come boldly to the throne of grace in faith. (See Ezekiel 22:30 and Hebrews 4:16.)
This is where our name lies as Christians. Our name makes good impact in our lives. It embodied our being by people calling our names. As we hear it, it does manifests in our lives. That is why it is imperative to know what is the meaning of our names.
As people call us by our names, the meaning of that will slowly will happen and manifest in our lives. Our behaviour will slowly attune to its meaning. Our name is a sign of declarations and decree in our life.
Some may ask, what if the name given to me is not a good meaning? Some Christians, as their name is being lifted up to God, they will prefix word into their names with, Blessed, Anointed, Favored — all words that speaks blessing. And in their hearts, if people call their names, it will registered as Blessed, Anointed and Favored and as they believed.
To all those soon-to-be mom. Choosing name for your child is very essential and important in his life. As it will partly dictate his future. However, we do believe that Jeremiah 29:11 is a promise of God written in His heart that will materialize in our lives. May it be physical and Spiritual blessings.
