Topic: Faith Calls Forth The Invisible [Friday April 13, 2018]
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” – 2 Corinthians 4:18 KJV
At times, your experience may contradict what the report of God says. In God’s Kingdom, you are not called to believe what you have seen; you are called to believe what you have not seen. That is where power is released. In Genesis 12:1-4 (KJV), God went to a heathen land and called out Abraham from an idol-worshipping background. “Get out of thy country and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee….” Initially, Abraham had doubts. That was why he went into Haggai and Ishmael was produced. Until God caused him to realize that he had to believe, in order for what He had promised to come to pass.
Romans 4:17 (KJV) puts this way, “(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were”. Beloved, God knows how to make dead things come alive. There might be some dead things in your life right now, get ready, they are coming alive. You are called to call the things that be not as though they are.
Believers are all over the place calling the things that be as though they are. No! By faith, call the things that be not as though they are. That is the scripture! Presently, health is not, wealth is not, prosperity is not, but we must speak them into existence rather than affirm your current reality. That is how to receive your miracles. Do you desire a miracle? Stop calling the things that you are experiencing. Faith calls forth the invisible. That is, the things that you are not yet experiencing. Today, I call you blessed. I call you delivered.
