Today concludes day four of our Israel tour. ( I’m not sure what day it is!?) I was walking along the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean Sea today looking for shells. I noticed some smooth flat rocks by a pile of shells on the shore. A big white smooth rock caught my eye. I was immediately reminded of the verse in the Bible that talks about those in Christ receiving a new name on a white stone. I wondered what my new name would be? I guess not Cameron Diaz or Farrah Fawcett.
Just imagine how awesome that will be when we see the name our Father in heaven has uniquely picked for each of His children. All of the pressures of life that washed over us through our lifetime making our rocky life surfaces flat and smooth. Would our name be Ollie Overcomer, Betty B. Blessed, Carol O. Conqueror or My Beloved Daughter? God looks at what we are becoming now and our future self not what our previous Stone Age resembled. Thank goodness for that!
