Following from my last blog post, ‘What is your Name?’, I saw a picture of a diamond and felt the Lord say that He names us as a jewel is named, and cuts facets onto us, that reflect different aspects of His Character in us.
I really feel the Lord is prompting us to write down the name He is giving us, and the various facets that He has been cutting on us. He wants us to see us as He does, for we become what we behold.
I love making things tangible and visual, as it emphasizes and reminds us of what God is saying to us. Making a jewel with facets out of clay or even Origami could be a great way to do this. You can put a plaque by it, with your new name on it. Write on the various facets the character of Christ that He is reflecting through you in this season.
This is a prophetic act. See yourself as Jesus sees you. No more the old, rough stone. He has worked you, He has pruned you, He has cut you to reflect His Glory and His Beauty in this new season. He has given you a new name, with the authority and anointing to walk in it.
“They shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him.
