Default Change Your Name

Change Your Name

REVELATION 2:17 NIV 17 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.

Jesus changed Simon's name to Peter, which means a rock.

God changed Abram's name to Abraham, which means father of a multitude.

Jacob's name was changed to Israel.

God's messenger called Gideon a "mighty man of valor" when he saw himself as a fearful loser.

2 CORINTHIANS 5:17 NIV 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

As a Christian believer, you are a new creation in Christ, and you are no longer a loser.

So quit calling yourself a loser -- or any negative name. Now that you are in Christ, those negative names do not fit. Accept the new name God gave you: "Winner." (This is what overcomer means!)

1 JOHN 5:4 NIV 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

Is it that easy? It involves more than just calling yourself a new name, but if you fail to change the way you talk about yourself, and the way you think about yourself, you will continue in the same old patterns of defeat.

You must begin to see yourself as God sees you, to see yourself as you can become.

Consider calling yourself some of the following names which reflect what the New Testament reveals about your new identity in Christ.

Forgiven Forgiver Child Of God Bold Confident Patient Kind Strong Righteous Rich Healthy Blessed Joyful

SAY THIS: I am a new person in Christ, and God has given me some new names.
