“I will also give to each one who wins the victory a white stone with a new name written on it.” Rev. 2:17
First time you’ve heard of that? Well doesn’t it make sense? Aren’t fathers fond of giving their children special names, like Princess or Tiger, or Sweetheart or Bubba or Angel? Isn’t it incredible to think that God has saved a name just for you? One you don’t even have a clue what it could be. I guess we’ve always assumed that we’d keep the name we’ve always had. Not so. The path ahead is so bright a new name is needed. Your eternity will be so special that no common earthly name will do. So God has reserved a heavenly name just for you. It will indicate that there was more to your life than you realized. More to your story than you thought even God noticed.
Bottom line for us all: Be there when God whispers your name.
