Every name has meaning. What’s Your Name?
“So the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem. When they arrived in Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them, and the women exclaimed, ‘Can this be Naomi?’
‘Don’t call me Naomi,’ she told them. ‘Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter. I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The Lord has afflicted me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.”
Every name has meaning, it has purpose. Naomi was returning to Bethlehem, having spent time in Moab. Because of what she had experienced, Naomi blamed God for how her life had turned out. Rather than facing the truth of her decisions, she chose to blame God, and then decided to change her name. She wanted to label herself something that God never intended her to be.
Could it be that we’ve done the same thing? Could it be that we carry around an identity that is different from God created us to be?
Don’t label yourself something that you aren’t meant to be. Don’t be like Naomi and try to change your identity. Instead, embrace who God has created you to be. If you’ve been ‘living in Moab,’ head back to Bethlehem.
Ask God to lead you away from whatever environment that might cause you to mislabel and misrepresent who you really are. Ask Him to lead you to where He would have you be.
Pray that God will bring the right people into your life who will encourage you to trust Him and identify who you are in Him.
Recheck your schedule for this week. Highlight the things that are pointing you to God and delete those which might be drawing your attention away from Him.
Thank You Jesus.
