Apostle Grace Lubega
Genesis 17:5 (KJV); Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
Child of God, what is the meaning of your name?
I am usually amazed when I ask Christians what their names mean and they tell me they have no idea.
How can you not know what your name means?
You may take it lightly but names are very powerful. It is important to know the meaning because every time it is called, two entities answer, you and some other spirit.
Some people are named after pagan gods and goddesses and these spirits are stirred with every mention of your name.
As a parent, take time and pray about the name you give your child. Do not name him or her after some movie actor or actress with no idea what the name means.
If you are serious about your salvation, find out the meaning of your name and if it frustrates your spiritual identity, seek God’s mind and change it.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I receive it as divine wisdom and know what to do. Because I must advance in the things of the Spirit, I will not allow anything to frustrate my progress, including my name. By this understanding, I align my spiritual identity to Your will, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
