New Hope

God has given you a new name if you believe in Jesus. He called Abraham "a father of many nations" (Rom. 4:17-21) when he was just an old man with a wife past child-bearing years, and no children.
He called Gideon a “mighty man of valor” (Judges 6:12-16) instead of “least in his father's household,” as Gideon thought about himself. Jesus appeared to Saul on the road to Damascus and turned him from persecutor of Christians to Paul, an apostle to the gentiles (Acts 9:15).
         Do you see yourself through the natural eye as old, weary, weak, and defeated? Or, do you see yourself as the man or the woman that God intended you to be? I know that He has added a new value to my Bulgarian name, Nadia, which means "hope."
