A New Name

Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”

The world attempts to define us by its own standards. We are identified as loser, manipulator, liar, addict, alcoholic, criminal, unworthy, and damaged. While we were in the world, we were subject to the world’s standards. Most of the time, many of us seemed resolved to live with the titles the world had given us.

Recovery in Christ allows us to live by a new standard. We are no longer called by our old names. Those old names cannot define who we are in Christ. In recovery, we are not who we once were. We have struggled with God, and with man, and now have a new identity.

Our struggle is not our identity. We are called by Christ to overcome this world. We break the shackles of worldly identification. Who we are, each of our identities, is no longer dependent on the outside world. We each have a new name that is given to us by Christ, who resides deep in our hearts.

A New Name

Father God, you call us by a new name. A name of hope and purpose. A name that shines your light on a broken world. You are the God of comfort and mercy. My identity is no longer tied up in what this world says I am or should be. I am Your child. A new creation. Thank you for changing me inside and out. Amen.
