I am in this really good Bible study at my church and I am LOVING it! I am learning so much. It’s called “The Father’s Daughter” and it’s all about how much God loves us so very personally and how He longs to show us that personal love. It’s a very interactive study where we seek to hear God lead us and let Him love on us.
I’d like to share some of this study with you. The first week we talked about how important it is for us to see ourselves the way God sees us. For some of us that is very hard because we have an old picture/ old name that keeps us stuck and coming right back to our sin pattern. For example, my old name was loser/ piece of garbage. If I always think of myself that way at the core of my being that is how I will live. I might have victory for a while, but I always get pulled back to that old name.
Kori (our teacher) introduced to us the truth that God gives us a new name. A name He wants to be our new identity.
In Isaiah 62:2 it says “The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow.”
I had never heard before that God gives us a new name and it has been a life-changing concept for me and I hope it is for you as well.
This is the prayer that Kori asked us to pray before beginning this process.
Dear Father God,
Your word says that to the degree that you love Jesus Christ, Your Son, that is the same degree that You love me. (John 15:9) Help me to believe, receive and grab hold of this truth in faith. Please give me supernatural, Holy Spirit power to understand this truth. I commit myself to looking for and expecting You to show me Your love in varying ways and degrees this week and beyond. Father, as I read through the following list, please make Your love real to me and tell me my new name. What is Your name for me? What is the name You whisper over me at night when you watch me sleep? I want to join You in speaking out the name You have been speaking over me from my conception. I claim Your promises in Romans 5:5 “… and hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. In Jesus name Amen.
Read through this list out loud to see if He gives you a new name. If you are at all stirred with emotion that could possibly be your new name. Don’t rush it! He will give you a new one. My new name didn’t come from this list, so your’s might not either.
