Have you ever stopped to think about how a name can set us on course? The very definition of one’s name has the ability to propel us into our destiny; the God ordained mission for our lives.
A few days ago, one of my husband’s students sent him a text regarding his letterman jacket. He explained that he hated his first name and was wanting to know if he could just use his last name only. My husband asked him why he didn’t like it. He simply just hated the name. So I took that as a challenge to help this young man step into his destiny. I googled the meaning of his name and found something I had feeling would change everything. We sent him what it meant and his response was exactly what I expected it to be. Pure excitement. He was suddenly in awe of his name because it was no longer just a name, but now it carried a promise.
Have you ever looked up the meaning of your name? If you haven’t, I highly encourage you to do so. You may be amazed at how you either are a direct reflection of your name or that God has given you a promise within the context of the very meaning.
