Topic: CALLS THOSE THINGS WHICH BE NOT…part 2.
Text: Romans 4:17
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.
I just want to emphasize 2 things here; what you see and what you say. Things seen appear real while things said are considered abstract. You hear people say, ‘ Seeing is believing ‘, the things seen catch people’s mind, what you are given appear certain than promises made, but by order of creation what is said is more powerful than what is seen.
Let me take you a little further here: James 3:6 And the tongue is a flame of fire….. It can set your whole life on fire..NLT. This is how powerful your tongue is, every warrior understands that every battle begins with spoken words, Goliath understood this and that is the reason he cursed David before starting a fight with him, look at in 1 Samuel 17:43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
Though he saw David as a small boy, he wouldn’t start a fight without cursing his enemy. King Barak also understood the important of words, he invited Prophet Balaam to curse the Israelites look at it in Numbers 22: 5,6 He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor….to call him, saying, Behold they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me: 6; Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them…
Before someone says I am just quoting from old testament look at it in Matthew 8:8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. Verse 9 shows that the centurion understood the chemistry of words. Hear Jesus’ response in verse 10: When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
The centurion understood the order of creation, it is simply by spoken words, he must have seen where an order was given for someone to be killed as soldier and the person was killed instantly, he must have seen how a criminal was set free by spoken words. He knew the efficacy of powerful words.
Everyone who understands the chemistry of the spoken words can change the course of his life. The spoken words can change what is seen, in fact, what is seen is a product of what was spoken in the past, the future will be determined by what is being said today. Your future will be a product of what you say today. I will continue in part 3. God bless you.
* As we wait upon the Lord today, say positive things into your life using the name of Jesus.
