There are many examples of name changes in the Bible. Giving us an example of how we change after an encounter with God. If you have accepted Jesus, stop holding on to your past "name" and walk into the new "name" God has given you.
Jacob to Isreal.
Saul to Paul.
Testimony: I was or I considered myself to be like "Rahab". I held unto it for years, in my mind. I know her profession is what most remember about her, but she also had faith. So, I admired that. She heard about God and trusted that He was God bigger than Canaan.
One day, I guess God had enough with my self imposed name, so He showed me my identity. He showed me He changed my name!
Are you holding on to the old name? Do you want to walk in your new identity? Pray. Ask Him to show you who you truly are. Let the old you go , and the new you glow.
Acts 9, Genesis 32:24-28
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
