What is your name?

"What is your name?"

That is basic and straightforward right?

But do you really “know” your name? You would stand up when you hear it called out, you would write it when you fill a form but how do you carry that name?
Do you realize that other than the name you are called, your creator, who also is your Father, if you’ve been adopted by Him, has given you another name that if you really know would drive you to stand tall and act differently than you do now?

It's interesting to note how we all know the "named" people around the world, the Trump, Buffett, Gates, Obama, Clinton, Dangote, Fernandez... just to mention a few. These are names that when we hear them, whether or not they are connected to the famed ones we stop to wonder "are they related to "the" big name we even sometimes ask.

When the named person is then around, suddenly everybody greets him/her all striving to be of service of some sort, basically falling over themselves to please this one person, and should you breech protocols and walk up to these people ( a major faux pas by the way), you might get the question- do I know you? With a look that says "don't you know who I am?"
But all of this is because he knows who he is.

Just imagine a Donald Trump not knowing who he is or what he is worth so he comes, cap in hand, to you for $100 loan when the banks would gladly give him $1,000, 000 just by the virtue of his name.

Stay with me for a moment longer, I'm getting to something, if you think it is ridiculous that a Donald Trump ask for a $100 loan, then you don't want to know how the angels and the entire host of heaven are bemused and just dumbfounded by your ignorance.

You, a daughter/son of a King, yet you go begging for crumbs that fall off the table of the servant when it's all yours for the taking. There are things our “named” people won't do just because of their name, yet even I engage in all sorts of foolishness when I forget who I really am.

I am The King's daughter
I stand tall
I am His royal priesthood
I stoop to none other than Him
I have His authority
So I curb my tongue
I walk with me head held high
Because I've got no reason to be ashamed
I am free!
Absolutely free to live in His Love!

I know my name, do you know yours?
If you know it,
Live in it!


  1. I know my name.
    Thank you Jesus for a new name when i accepted you as my Lord and Saviour.

  2. He said He called me by name, He knows me and so I know me. Thanks for sharing this.

    How are you dear? Have a great weekend.

  3. Tioluwalopemi, this is a great post. If only we knew who we were, we would behave differently, we would walk tall. I love your analogies. The truth is that as God's children, who have accepted Christ, God who is the owner of this planet and all others, is more our Daddy than Trump is Trump.

    That reality only needs to go beyond skin deep. I need to know that the Almighty is my Daddy and I am a joint heir with Christ Jesus, just like I know my name is Tolulope. For many of God's children though, their spiritual identity is just "spiritual" and not "real", when in fact the spiritual is the reality.

    I think if we really knew who we were, we would live it. Mostly, we know it in our heads but deny/doubt it in our hearts. Meditation on the truth of scriptures is what transforms head to heart knowledge and that produces results inevitably.
