MUST READ: Uyu AneZita RaMbuya: Do You Know The Effect Of Names?

It has been known from ancient times that naming a thing or person is, both, taking ownership of it and spelling a destiny for it. 

A careful study of the Bible and even people around us will show you how the naming process and names can either be a great blessing or curse: “And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).

Giving a child someone's name who we do not know their standing in the spirit is very dangerous. before you name your child by another name consider what God says. In Luke 1 Zechariah's relatives wanted his son to be named after the father but the mother and father refused and called him John, after what the angel had said. Unezita ratete, rambuya, rababamukuru, rasekuru?

In 1 Samuel 25, we encounter the story of David, Abigail and Nabal. In the whole story, Nabal acted foolishly and therefore God smote him and he died. In self defense part of what Abigail says to David was: “Please pay no attention, my lord, to that wicked man Nabal. He is just like his name—his name means Fool, and folly goes with him” (v25). His name had an influence on him.

Jabez (meaning, “sorrowful”), born in pain and suffering had to fight against the effect of his own name: “Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain” (1 Chronicles 4:10).

What does your name mean? Whom are you named after? What was the situation prevailing that led parents to give you that name? To shut that door you need to deep the name in the blood of Jesus or change it? Do you feel safe by your name?
