What God Names, He Blesses It Too

Dearly beloved,
Even before a child is born, God knows about him/her and has named him already. He has beautiful plans for all you, even before you were born. And the Bible says, whatever exists in the world today, it’s all pre-planned by God Almighty, Whatever exists has already been named,  and what humanity is has been known; no one can contend with someone who is stronger (Ecclesiastes 6:10).

This verse has been extended even to the New Testament, especially in the Gospels. Wherein, we read about the birth of Jesus Christ. Angel Gabriel was sent by God to Mary and Jesus’ foster father, Joseph. Mary and Joseph didn’t decide upon any name to be given to Jesus. On the contrary, Joseph was skeptical to be with Mary on knowing about her pregnancy. In fact, he planned to disassociate from her to avoid ignominy. But Joseph was categorically told by angel in a dream, “do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.  She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:19-21). So God had planned already how He would rescue humanity, through His Son. Therefore, He confirmed the name “Jesus” to Mary and Joseph.
I too have witnessed the same in my family. My wife had a miscarriage in the third month and the next child was stillborn. All of us were deeply pained by this. God then blessed us with Paul, our son. This put an end to our sorrow and we were all very happy. When the time for christening came, my wife named him, “ Emerson”.  All came up with their suggestions, some advised, “Paul”, some pastors said, “Faith”. Some even told to name him after his grandfather, “Appadurai”. Finally, he was christened with all those names, along with my name too. He was enrolled in school as D.E.F. Appadurai and was often teased by his friends.  My son was quite upset about it and patiently completed his B.Sc. Soon after he completed his degree, he met one of my friends who was then the Legal secretary in Chennai. He requested his name to be changed, his plea was noted and his name was changed to “Paul Dhinakaran”.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, you may plan many things for your life, your children’s life but ultimately what God has planned will come to pass. Because the bible says, that God knows each one of you, even before you were born, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,  before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5).Not only does He name you but, He also chooses you and has your future decided. He sent His son Jesus to save you from all the forces of the evil one. He was sent as light to shun all the darkness. Just like God took away all our sorrows and blessed us with what He had already chosen, He will do the same for you. You need to trust in Him and in His promises.
Abba Father, I thank you for Jesus who came to save me. Today, I place all my sorrows and pain at your feet. Lord help me to trust in you and your promises.
In the most precious name of Jesus I pray. Amen
