Theme: Define it.
Text: Genesis 17: 6
Permit me to make a little addition to Abraham and Sarah’s example. If you want to change who you are, you need to change the way people identify you.
To change the situation around you, you need to give it a new identification.
Your title defines who you are. The president is given His/Her Excellency as a title; apostle, reverend, Bishop, Pastor and the likes are given to the men of the clergy; Otumfuo is a title given to the Asante king and the list continues. When the name of a person is mentioned, it gives an indication of who the person is. For Abram and Sarai to be eternally acknowledged as the father and mother of many nations respectively, God gave them a new identification. The identification explained to everyone who they were. That is why God is not the God of Abram, but rather the God of Abraham.
There is a saying that walls have ears. If the wind could recognise the voice of Jesus and calm down, if Jesus could say that mountains could be displaced if we speak to it, then I believe your situation can be changed by what you say it should be. I am not necessarily saying that the situation has ears, but I can confidently say that your situation will respond to your definition of it. Define it then!!!
