Word & Name

Ex. 34:5-6 “Then the Lord came down in a cloud and stood there with him; and he called out his own name, Yahweh.] The Lord passed in front of Moses, calling out, “Yahweh! The Lord! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.”

You prophecy your destiny in three ways and the first way is through The Words That You Speak. My grandmother taught us to always have the last say. She taught us to talk back and have the final say. It is deep spiritually, and we have to teach our children to counter negative pronouncements said over them, counter it politely. 2 Kings 7:1-2Elisha replied, “Listen to this message from the Lord! This is what the Lord says: By this time tomorrow in the markets of Samaria, six quarts of choice flour will cost only one piece of silver, and twelve quarts of barley grain will cost only one piece of silver.” The officer assisting the king said to the man of God, “That couldn’t happen even if the Lord opened the windows of heaven!” But Elisha replied, “You will see it happen with your own eyes, but you won’t be able to eat any of it!” Spiritual warfare.

Elisha is declaring what God has said and the man is prophesying something contrary. What did Elisha do? He ensured that He had the last word. Unfortunately, like we see with the officer in this scripture, every time people disdain God’s Word, they see it come to pass but they do not partake in it. You will see it and you will become a part of it, in the Name of Jesus. Logic will not wreck your destiny in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Watch the words that you speak.

The second way to prophesy your destiny is The Names That You Bear. To prophecy your destiny, the name that you bear is so powerful. Guess what? People join you to prophecy your destiny anytime they call you that name. There are certain names I wonder how parents give those names to their children. How can you name your child, “he that comes with the masquerade” or “he that the devil gave birth to”? Some people’s name actually means sorrow. Just let’s say the person’s name is Marah for example, every time someone calls “Marah” they are prophesying. Similarly, if the person’s name is Joy, every time someone says ‘Joy’ they are prophesying. A name like ‘God loves me’ for example is a very special name because it is a double-edged sword. Such names bless the one you call and bless you too. My parents were in the spirit when they gave me that name. When you call me, you are reinforcing and prophesying into my life, and you are also prophesying into your own life.

God said to Abraham in Gen.17:5 “What’s more, I am changing your name. It will no longer be Abram. Instead, you will be called Abraham, for you will be the father of many nations.” Abram also meant father, but it meant exalted father. It was not a bad name, but it still did not paint the picture of what God wanted for his destiny. Many of us have good names but it is not great enough to carry your destiny. But God looked at him and you are the father of multitudes. God had to change his name and give him a name that was commiserate to his destiny. Nothing prophecies your destiny more accurately than your name, nothing!

Prayer: Father, give me a name that speaks Your heart and plan for me, in Jesus Name. Amen!
