Continuing on calling things that are not as though they were…
Romans 4:17 (KJV) 17 (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.
1 Corinthians 1:28 (KJV) 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
We are to call things from the spirit realm into the physical realm to manifest or to bring to nothing things that are in the physical realm. We also put to nothing things that are in the physical realm by calling things from the spirit realm. Hold on while I explain further.
A good example of this is healing. When you’re battling a sickness or disease, constantly talking about it or saying my pain, my diabetes, my heart problem, actually establishes that problem. It doesn’t get rid of it because there’s no power in calling things that are already there.
Instead, we’re to speak forth the healing power of God by saying what He has already said in His Word. [I Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:4-5; Mark 16:18] We’re to rebuke the sickness/disease in the Name of Jesus and call for the healing power of God to manifest. It’s really that simple but it absolutely must be done in faith. We call for the healing from the spirit realm into the physical realm to annihilate the sickness and disease and produce healing. Then stay in faith; don’t let negative words come out of your mouth to negate your faith. We’ll get into this more as time goes on.
You have to know that it’s God’s will for you to be healed or it’s impossible to pray for healing. And it works the same with other situations in your life. You must know what God’s will is in every situation or you cannot pray the prayer of faith.
James 1:5-7 (KJV) 5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
Whatever we need to know from God about His will, He will tell us but we have to stick with it. If we waver, vacillate, or waffle, our prayers won’t work. And His will is easy to know because His Word is His will. It’s not about what man has said or what your grandmother or uncle, aunt or even your pastor has said. It’s what God has said!
In fact, it’s not even about your experience or even someone else’s experience. It’s all about what our faithful God has said in His Word. I know I’ve said this many times but it’s important and can’t be stressed enough because most Christians aren’t doing this. And that’s why they’re not having success and getting their desired results. But all this can change!
