Your Name Is Not
And the angel of the Lord appeared to him and said to him, “The Lord is with you, O mighty man of valor.”—Judges 6:12
Brother you name is not “dufus, dummy, dingbat, dimwit, dumbo, dodo, or dip.” You are not the sum of what others say, have said, or will say. You are only what God says, therefore believe and accept it by faith just like you did when you first believed. In reality, you are a “mighty man of valor.” In other words, your righteousness, character, and mission are given to you and defined by God. God spoke this way to his son Jesus. Jesus spoke this way to Peter. And your Father speaks this way to you.
DO THIS: Accept God’s truth, and his voice as the source or your shape, significance, and strength.
PRAYER: God, help me to live in the identity that you created and see in me.
