God Calls Things That Are Not as Though They Were

Is this line of blogging causing your mind to tilt? It doesn’t make intellectual sense but it does make spiritual sense.  How about this scripture in Romans, chapter 4, that describes God and how He does things on the earth.

Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were (Romans 4:16-17).

This scripture teaches that God Himself calls things “that are not as though they were.” It sounds a lot like what God did in Genesis when He created the heavens, the earth, light, man, etc. Could this mean that He wants us to also speak creative, faith-filled words? Yes, I believe it does. When He is challenging us to speak out words of faith He is challenging us to co-create with him in our lives and in our areas of responsibility. I heard one person say it like this…”If you are not saying it you are not creating it.” This is how God operates.
