Named to Order…


The primary purpose of naming a person or an object is to identify them. You can identify something by what/how it is or what it does (i.e. purpose). A description of what/how could be an adjective like beautiful, wonderful, glorious, bad, poor, lazy, etc. When you name something by its purpose, you are simply indicating the role it plays and its value. In fact, a name is simply a prophecy of what will be. If you take a cue from how God named Jesus in Isaiah 9:6, it was prophetically by who He is and His purpose. We are told “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace”. Jesus was everything our heavenly Father said He would be. When you order food in a restaurant, you name what you desire and you get it. For instance, you might ask for noodles that is plain boiled, stewed in sauce or fried, and you get it. The same goes, when you order any material item online or from a store. Jesus was ‘named to order’. His purpose was to be a counsellor and a wonderful counsellor. He was a prince and specifically the Prince of Peace. Every time you speak about yourself, your spouse, your children and your family, order what you want to see. Your tongue has the prophetic power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). It can create and it can destroy. Particularly when you speak to or about your children, say what you want to see. I am not an advocate for raising your voice at your children but if you must, call them what you want them to be and not undesirable words. If you really must tell people about your children, tell them about someone who has a bright future, and not of someone who should be condemned. No mater what stage of life they may be in right now, name them to order; and do it every single day. If you are are grandparent, do the same for your grand babies. And please, if you don’t have anything positive to say openly, then stay quiet till you do. Name your child to order. Even when others may say something negative about them; don’t just sit there, use your mouth to order what you want to see. Speak the positive; it will reverse the negative and establish exactly what you speak.
