|* The Power Of A Name * by udopee(f): 3:19am On Feb 08, 2018|
*** THE POWER OF A NAME. “KNOW THY NAME”***
Prior to or after the birth of a child, the parents agree on the selection of a special name for the child. When selecting a name for a child, parents should be very cautious and understand the meaning of that name that would apply to the child. Selecting the proper name for a child should be seasoned with prayers and research if need be. This naming process is a progression that plants the seeds of spiritual growth in the minds, spirit and destiny of the child. When they grow older, they will not depart from what you have planted in them.
By giving your child a meaningful name, you can help point them to a future destiny filled with expectations and excitements. Nothing grabs the attention of a misbehaving child more effectively than a parent-the best owner of the child’s names, calling him by his first, middle and last names. Proverb 22:1 says, “A GOOD NAME IS TO BE CHOSEN RATHER THAN GREAT RICHES”…Solomon wrote, “A GOOD NAME IS BETTER THAN OINTMENT”… (ECCESIASTES 7:1).
When people hear your name mentioned, what does them thinks about. When one hears the name Judas, one thinks of a traitor; the name Jezebel paints an image of a self-serving, controlling woman. Name often connotes purpose, authority, make-up and character. Acts 4:12 depicted the power in the name of Jesus when it said, “…FOR NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED”. “THAT AT THE NAME OF JESUS, EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW… (PHILIPPIANS 2:10).
In fact, a person’s name is frequently seen as an equivalent of that person. When a person is “RIGHTEOUS”, there is always a positive manifestation of his name in line with his character and destiny. The reverse is the case if the person went into sin or disobedience to God. For instances;
NAME- MEANING - RIGHTEOUS/POSITIVE - SINFUL/NEGATIVE
1.Chioma - Good God-Godly character- Devilish character
2.Ngozichukwu-Blessings of God- Blessings -Curses
3.Ihuoma- Divine Favour Favoured - Disfavoured
4.Udodi _There is peace _Peaceful_Restless/No Peace
5.Chinaemerem _God is my provider_God’s provision Devil’s provision
6.Adaeze_Daughter of a King - Daughter of God _ Daughter of devil
7.Ikechukwu_Power of God_Ultimate Power of God_ Devilish power
8. Ezinne - Good Mother - Godly Mother - Evil Mother.
From the above illustration, when there is no positive and godly manifestation of your name in your character and destiny, it calls for sober reflection. You need to take stock of your lifestyle, examine yourself to know whether you are in the right standing with God.
Conclusively, all names have meanings. There is power in the name that you declared upon yourself and power behind the names that people place upon you. Through our own choices and actions, each of us can name and rename ourselves to align with our future destiny and to the glory of God…SHALOM!!!
