The word of God for today
In Genesis 35, immediately before Rachel died during childbirth, she was in such agony and misery that she named the infant Ben-Oni, which translates as "son of my anguish." In ancient days, a child's name dictated the course of their life. She had predicted that he would live a miserable, painful, and depressed existence. However, Jacob intervened and renamed him Benjamin, which translates as "son of my right hand, son of my strength." Jacob will not permit his son to regard himself as a sorrowful son, as confined and defeated.
Those who should have spoken faith over you, affirmed you, and declared you victorious, talented, and a masterpiece may have done the opposite.If they labeled you a failure, not good enough, or untalented, the good news is that God's label for you takes precedence over what others label you. Allow not harsh words spoken about you, your upbringing, or the things you lacked to determine your fate.Change your name to the one God has given you.
A Personal Prayer for Today
Thank you, Father, because you alone have the authority to name me. Thank you for giving me a name that trumps all other names I've been given and all of my past flaws.I will adopt the name you have given me and become who you say I am. In the name of Jesus, Amen
