CALL IT FORTH
BIBLE READING: ROMANS 4:17; GENESIS 1:11-12
“Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19(NKJV).
One of the most important benefits of being a child of God is our unrestricted access to the Unsearchable Riches of Christ Jesus. The Bible makes it abundantly clear to us that God Almighty has granted unto us “all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the Knowledge of Him Who called us by glory and virtue.” 2Peter 1:3(KJV). Knowing this truth, however, is insufficient if we really want to enter its reality in a practical sense. One major way to activate your inheritance in Christ is by calling it forth into existence.
During the Creation Story, the Scripture reveals to us a clear template regarding how to activate the manifestation of the invisible into the visible:
“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:2(NKJV).
The phrase “without form and void” is derived from the Hebrew expression “tohu va bohu,” which literally translated means “formless, desolate (tohu)” and “empty, waste (bohu).” What a bleak picture! God Almighty’s Perfect Creation was marred by the pre-Adamic rebellion. But how did He respond to this catastrophe? As Omnipotent as God is, nothing happened when He WISHED it. Nothing also happened when He WILLED it. However, the Bible tells us, “Then God SAID, Let there be light, and there was light.”(Genesis 1:3). The Lord God Almighty is bound by His Own Principles and one of the laws of faith is the law of confession. Believing in the Finished Works of Christ Jesus on the Cross is akin to potential energy but speaking those things into reality is akin to kinetic energy.
The Bible declares in Proverbs 18:21 that; Death and life “are in the power of the tongue…” Therefore, our tongues are the tools with which we trigger the Riches of Christ into our possession. The Scripture admonishes us with a critical reminder, stating that; “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God.” Hebrews 11:3a(NKJV).
Are you facing adverse situations in your life? On the authority of the aforementioned Scriptures, you have the authority to recreate your world with the words of your mouth because your tongue “is the pen of a ready writer.”(Psalm 45:1b). Call forth light in the midst of darkness, life in the midst of death, healing in the midst of sickness, excellence in the midst of mediocrity, abundance in the midst of scarcity etc. Life is a battlefield where the war of words is being waged. You can be rest assured of your constant victory as you call forth “those things which do not exist as though they did.”(Romans 4:17b).
Heavenly Father, we honour You for Who You Are and what You do.Thank You for making our tongues the pen of a ready writer that we may call forth into reality those things which belong to us in Christ Jesus. We exalt You with our hearts full of gratitude in Jesus’ Mighty Name.
•Victory is mine in the Name of Jesus Christ.
•I call forth promotion in the midst of demotion.
•When men say there is a casting down, I declare a lifting in my life and destiny.
