THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
YOU WILL BECOME WHAT YOU BELIEVE…..
Abram was ninety-nine years old when God promised him that he and Sarah were going to have a BABY. BOTH of them were way too old, but God did something UNUSUAL. In addition to giving them the promise, He CHANGED Abram’s name to ABRAHAM, which means “father of many nations.” Every time someone said, “Hello, ABRAHAM,” they were saying, “Hello, father of many nations.” When he had NO child with Sarah, they were speaking FAITH into his DESTINY, and during the following YEAR, baby ISAAC was born.
That’s why it’s so important to start calling YOURSELF what GOD says about YOU. What you continually HEAR gets down INSIDE. You will become what you BELIEVE. Every time you say, “I am BLESSED. I am PROSPEROUS. I am HEALTHY,” it’s getting deeper INSIDE, it’s changing your self-IMAGE, it’s REPROGRAMMING your MIND. The change may not happen OVERNIGHT, but God IS changing your NAME. Having the right NAME is what’s going to help you stay STRONG so YOU can become what God says about YOU.
Genesis 17:5, NIV
No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.
