“I have made you the father of many nations.” This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing. (Romans 5:17).
If you want to have what God says it’s yours in the Bible you must not consider how impossible your circumstances look in the natural. When God told Abraham to start calling himself father of many Nations, Abraham did not smell like it nor looked like it in any form or shape. (Genesis 17:5). And, Abraham didn’t think for a minute he could pull it off by his natural strength, he was too smart to fool himself.
The Bible says Abraham didn’t consider his wrinkled 100 years aged old body nor his aged old wife, Sarah and deadness of her womb. (Romans 4:18-21). He did not look at his natural abilities but he kept his eyes on God. With all the odds stacked against him, he hoped. He locked his attention on God’s creative ability, he knew God can bring any thing into existence by speaking it. And so Abraham became a God imitator and started speaking like God. (Romans 4:17). Abraham ONLY believed the report of the Lord and ACTED on God’s Word and God brought it pass!
One thing about God is that, He is a KING, in fact “THE KING.” He is The KING of all kings. (Revelation 17:14). And the fact of the matter is that, even in the natural world we know that the word of a king has power. How much more the Word of God, the KING of kings who spoke the universe into existence. The Word of God will not return back to Him void, without accomplishing what He sent it to do. Isaiah 55:11). Meaning if God said it, you can take it to the bank and it won’t ‘bounce.’ but it will come to pass. So my friend isn’t it time you start imitating God? Take your eyes off your overwhelming situation, and take hold of the creative Word of God and start speaking life into that dead situation. ONLY believe that God can make a way for you!
I will continue with “Imitators of God” in tomorrow’s post. Thank you 🙂
Prayer Confession: Heavenly Father thank you for enlightening me in Your Word. Your Word is Spirit and Life. It’s sharper than a double edge sword and able to create and make me into who you say I am in your Word. I am not what my circumstances call me or what people say I am, but I am who God says I am. I choose to believe the report of the Lord over my life. God has set life and death before me and I choose life, I will hold unto the report of the Lord, because God is able to make a way for me. I cancel every negative word spoken over my life with the blood of Jesus, I nullify curses and spells cast against me and my family with the blood of Jesus. No weapon formed against me and my family shall proper. I am created in God’s image. And I resemble my Father in all things. I am more than a conqueror because I am already blessed with all spiritual blessings. God has put His hand of blessing upon me. Every thing I touch is blessed. And I am a blessing to my generation. In Jesus Name. Amen!
Reflection: “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. 11 It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it." (Isaiah 55:10-11).
