"Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name." Genesis 2: 19 (NKJV).
Bible Readings: Genesis 2: 18-25, Proverbs 6: 2, Proverbs 18: 20-22, Isaiah 45, Proverbs 4: 7, Job 28: 7-28.
The only way your promotion comes is through a test. There can't be a testimony until you pass the test. Man needs a wife and woman needs a husband. When God created you, he knew that you need a helpmate & partner.
When God knows that you need something but brings you something else, he wants to see your attitude and behaviour towards it and even towards God that brought it. Whatever you call the situation that comes your way, so it is. Whatever you desire and decide will be given to you but it will be given to you as you name it. It's not the name you voice out but the name in your heart. God is going to allow things to come your way in 2017 but he did not name them before they will come so whatever you name it, it will be.
You are meant to take responsibility for your life because nobody will do it for you. Whatever you call a situation, is what it will answer to. Call what you want to see! There are things that will make you cry this year, what will you say about those things? Whatever situation comes your way, God wants to see whether the name you have is in line with his own.
Wisdom is what you need to name it! If you want to succeed this year, you need wisdom. It's not what happens to you that matters but what you make of it. When man passes the exams, God makes him go to sleep meaning there is a point of rest.
- Ask for wisdom to name the situations the way God wants it.
