DON'T LET THE ENEMY CHANGE YOUR NAME
I would like to start by telling you, that before you was born, God already gave you a name, and not the name that you parents gave you, a name of glory, of blessing, a name that that identifies you from others, because that name is your identity, it's who you are what you will do for God Kingdom. But there is someone that want to change your name because he want to obtain you identity, stolen from you, so that you will never become who God want you to be, and that is Satan.
Let read what happend to four wises and brilliants young men Daniel 1:1-7
:In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. 2 And the Lord delivered Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, along with some of the articles from the temple of God. These he carried off to the temple of his god in Babylonia[a] and put in the treasure house of his god.
3 Then the king ordered Ashpenaz, chief of his court officials, to bring into the king’s service some of the Israelites from the royal family and the nobility— 4 young men without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in the king’s palace. He was to teach them the language and literature of the Babylonians.[b] 5 The king assigned them a daily amount of food and wine from the king’s table. They were to be trained for three years, and after that they were to enter the king’s service.
6 Among those who were chosen were some from Judah: Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. 7 The chief official gave them new names: to Daniel, the name Belteshazzar; to Hananiah, Shadrach; to Mishael, Meshach; and to Azariah, Abednego.
The king of Nebuchadnezzar took captive the people of Judah, but among everyone he took the more wise and brilliants for him self, and order to gave the from his food and wine, and not only the chief official change they name. What does that mean, that not only they want it to change the way they were used to eat but also there name so at the end they were going to be losing they real identity.
at some point in your life you will find your self under the preassure of difficulties that will make you feel like a prisoner and the devil will come an dtry to change your spiritual food to his that it is not heathty, and also will come to try to steal you name given by God, into a defeat one. If God called you to be heathty he will said that you are ill, if God said that you r name is peace the devil will called you war or arguments, if God calls you financially healthy, the Devil will calles you poverty. So what do you need to do, first don't let the situation control your life, you mind and your heart, don't speak what you see, speak what God said about you before you was born. Second do what Daniel did, do not contaminate your self with the food that the world give you, Daniel 1:8-9
"But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way. 9 Now God had caused the official to show favor and compassion to Daniel,"
Daniel and his Friends guard they heart and body from what it seem to be good for them but it was not they real identity and as people form Judah.
We need to do the same things, although things look good to our eyes but it is not in the plan of God for us, it is only Satan trying to steal your blessing and destroy you.
Don't let the Devil change your name that is who you are for God it is your Kingdom Identity.
God Bless you
