“Call those things that be not in your life as though they were. Those things that were not in existence, but you desire them in your life, Call them forth!”
“As it is written, I have made you a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, who quickens the dead, and calls those things which be not as though they were.” Romans 4:17
It had been God’s principle to call forth everything He wants to see. For instance, when darkness covered the whole earth and there was no life in it. He called forth everything good He wants to see; and they came to be.
Things that were not in existence, as He was thinking of them, before He spoke out, they were already there. That was what God was teaching Abraham; He was teaching him one of the principles of success and breakthrough in life. That teaching was very hard for Abraham to understand. He was asking himself, “How can somebody without a child yet, be a father of many nations?” God was calling those things that be not as though they were!
For instance, a woman that was waiting on the Lord for many years shared a testimony. She went to buy babies’ wares and all other things she would use to take care of them, she had not conceived not to talk of giving birth to her twins, she went to the extent of putting their names down on paper, and that was it. Some months after, she conceived and gave birth to her twins (one boy and one girl as she desired it). She was acting as if she had already had her children. She called forth her babies and they answered.
There was another man that needed a car because his job required one. He looked for the picture of the car, and he pasted it on the wall of his room. Every morning he woke up, he would speak to the picture of the car; do not forget, everything – both living things and non-living things – hears. The same way Jesus called forth Lazarus among the dead, and Prophet Ezekiel spoke to the dry bones; the dead came forth and became a living soul. The same way, the man bought the same car he is seeing the picture everyday, and that his heart had already pictured. As he was calling it forth every morning, everything was working for the actualization of the words: “Lord I thank you for my car, because this is the type I desire, and I know you will do it. You are my provider; I know you will provide for me to possess this type of car.”
It is a spiritual exercise, and it may be hard to believe for those that are not of the kingdom. This is one of God’s ways and principles. If you do not say out what is in your mind, and you assume God knows; yes, God knows it, but many people are voicing theirs, if you are God Almighty, which one will you do first?
Picture everything you desire God should do in your life everyday in your heart; prepare for it, and learn to call them forth. I assure you, that is exactly what God will make manifest in your life.
