As it is written: I have appointed you to be the father of many nations. So Abraham is our father in the eyes of God in whom he had faith, the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that don’t exist into existence.
(Romans 4:17 CEB)
By your words, you will either act like God or the devil. You will either express the will and Word of God or the deception and lies of the devil. Once you have that firmly established, you won’t care what people say to you or about you because you know who God says you are and you are determined only to say what He says about you. You know what He says you can have and can do, and that is your confession of faith.
When you begin to operate in the law of confession, you may have problems with other people simply because you haven’t built a track record of success. Sometimes you have to stick your neck out in faith, trust God to perform His Word, and watch the miracles happen a few times before you really become fully assured inside that what you say is going to happen because it is God’s Word. There are times when you may feel silly, but that is just another collision between your natural education and your spiritual education. Keep pressing on because you were created to act this way.
After awhile this behavior will become easier and feel more comfortable. You will come to have faith in every word you speak. When a situation arises, you will get God’s wisdom on it, speak His Word and will, and then go on to something else because you know your words are going to work exactly as you spoke them. This is how God created you to function in taking dominion over the Earth and replenishing it. This is acting like Him.
It’s time you start calling “things that be not as though they were.” Then you are going to see miraculous results, just like Abraham and Sarah did!
Dear God, though I don’t yet see it happening in the physical realm, I am going to call (name what you are believing for) to manifest, I believe I receive what You have promised in Your Word. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
