Fresh Hope – 13th November 2017

I want to talk to you about your name.
In the Old Testament we read how God told Abram that He was going to change his name.
‘Abram’ was not who God intended him to be. So God changed his name to Abraham. (Which meant Father of many).
When his name got changed he wasn’t even the father of one!

God has a name for you that is where you are heading to, not where you are now.

God speaks over your life your future, not your present or your past, but what you WILL become.

We think our name is hopeless, no good, sick, depressed, broke, misfit, failure , loser. We base our names on our past and our past experiences and on our present situations.

Often we can be too consumed with others names, like ‘whose name’ I am wearing. Don’t place too much store in whose name you’re wearing, be more concerned with who you are becoming.

Change your thinking today to see your name as
Blessed.
Successful.
Healed.
Prosperous.
Preacher.
Champion.
Difference maker.
World changer.

Did you know you can change your name by deed poll many times if you’d like, for a few pounds on the internet? You can change it ten times if you want. But it won’t make any difference to you whatsoever.
You will still be the same.

The only one who can make a difference to your life is ‘The name that is above every name’ – Jesus.
He is the one who can change your name today.
He can change your name and your situation.

HE is the difference maker. HE can give you a name of where you are going and who you are going to be.
