I want to stir up your faith today! God has given us incredible power, promises and provisions - let's not be negligent - let's use them! I pray you are encouraged today by “a Word, a Song and a Laugh!”
A Word: "Therefore, [inheriting] the promise is the outcome of faith and depends [entirely] on faith, in order that it might be given as an act of grace (unmerited favor), to make it stable and valid and guaranteed to all his descendants—not only to the devotees and adherents of the Law, but also to those who share the faith of Abraham, who is [thus] the father of us all. As it is written, I have made you the father of many nations. [He was appointed our father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed.” Romans 4:16-17, AMPC
I like the way the New King James Bible puts verse 17, “…God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did…”
To imitate God (Eph 4:1) and to walk in the type of faith that pleases Him, we are to call those things that do not exist as though they did! We are to speak of nonexistent things that God has promised as if they already existed!
What has God promised you? What doesn’t exist in the natural quite yet?
Speak of those things that don’t exist as if they do! (Note: we are not speaking of things that do exist as though they don’t - that’s denial, not faith.) We call things that are not as though they were! Are you speaking of these things as if they already existed? Are you calling things which do not exist as thought they did? You should! Today.
It might sound like this:
I call my family blessed and mightily used of God.
I call my body healed, strong and full of energy.
I call my brain, my bones, my nerves, my muscles, my digestive system, my reproductive system … (and whatever parts of your body you want to speak of) — I call you normal, strong, healthy, energized and fruitful!
I call my kids successful, loving, influential and kind.
I call my investments prosperous and multiplying.
I call my grandkids blessed and protected.
I call my products sold.
I call my business, my ministry, my life surrounded with favor.
I call my future bright and getting brighter every day!
I call my life long and satisfied.
Get the idea? Start calling things “as though!”
A Song: Today, I have one song for you! Put it on repeat and pray/sing it over your life and those you care about.
In Jesus Name (God of Possible), by Katy Nichole - sing it, speak it, say it, declare it! I’m speaking this over each one of you today!!
