What does your name mean?


Ecc 7:1 A good name is better than precious perfumes.

Sorry, what is your name again…

In some parts of the world, naming some one is considered as a very Important decision. In some cultures, people believe a name has the power to shapes some one’s destiny. In the western world we use names In remembrance of loved one’s or our fathers christian name. I guess a lot of people would decide to name a child because it feels or sounds right.

•Why was you given the name?
•Do you think your name is a
reflection of your life’s journey or destiny
•what reflection does your name have on your character?

Well my name is Peter, Hi there, as some might already know. From the meaning of my name I see a lot of similarities with the Peter in the bible. Looking back at my journey I was the opposite to what the name Peter means but what I understand is the name is a reflection of my destination.
If you believe names are significant then
the story of jabez might help. 1Ch 4:9
There was a man named Jabez who was more honorable than any of his brothers. His mother named him Jabez because his birth had been so painful.

1Ch 4:10 He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!” And God granted him his request.

Bearing in mind the story is explained from the outcome of his life going back to his birth when his mother named him because of the circumstances in with he was delivered.
This is so profound, this is why I love the word of God, full of relevant truth & inspiration . Like a visionary the story has been explained to see the end or the outcome of jabez’s life story before explaining the detail what a testimony.

So what do we learn about Jabez?
Well no matter how bad a situation is there is always hope as we redefine our life’s mission if by prayer, revelation or simply to change your name, then let it be.
I’m so encouraged to see the people I’m associated come into there own, without being shaped according to any one’s personal opinions I believe God made individual’s not clones to show what we all possess is so unique & special so as each person who is named will also display his greatness.

Sorry, what’s your name!

The prime minister of England

20120518-150241.jpg

Yesterday the prime minister said, we are living in perilous time!

This statement sounds familiar, in the bible it says that times like these would come and the current climate has prove it to be true

Lord we pray for England and remember at this time all the nations of this world especially for every president and world leader, who needs help to make the right decisions for their countries and their people also world economies that are failing but you lord you never fail, who remembers your people even when your people forget you

You said , your love was commended towards us when we didn’t know the love of christ, so now help us to respond to your love not just for us but for the comfort of other People , help us to know that we are priceless before you
Lord rise and shine for our light has come, you are our glory so rise upon us lord , Amen

“One thing I do”

20120516-094457.jpg

Though I am free and belong to no body , I make myself available to everyone, to win as many as possible.

To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law.

To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law.
To the weak I became weak, to win the weak I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 1cor 9:22

The inspired writings , from Paul The Apostle
