Agree with your Father
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak. 2 Corinthians 4:13
Do you speak what you believe, or do you only talk about what you see? What I am referring to is only talking about your circumstances instead of talking about what you believe God will do in your circumstances.
Let me give you an example of what I mean. The women with the issue of blood in Matthew 9 knew she had an issue of blood and had that issue for 12 years, yet in verse 21 it says that she said within herself, when I touch His garment, I will be made whole. She had so much faith in what Jesus would do for her, that she wasn’t talking about what her problem was anymore, she only focused on and spoke her answer. That’s when her issue changed.
Another example is Abram. God told him he would be the father of many nations, yet he didn’t even have any children of his own. So, when God changed his name from Abram to Abraham, meaning father of nations, he agreed with God by speaking that name instead of focusing on his lack of current family.
The list goes on of what God said about people in the midst of their delimmas. Each one of them had to make the choice to agree with what God said, or agree with the current circumstances. Gideon was called a mighty warrior, while he was in hiding from his enemy. Moses was called the deliverer when he wasn’t anywhere near Egypt. Mary was called the hand maiden of the Lord and she was just a young Hebrew girl.
The point is, each one of us have limitations in our current circumstances, but God can change every obstacle and turn it for our good. Circumstances can change, and they always do change. All we have to do is turn them over to our Father and believe He will change them for good. Then stop talking about what the problem is and start talking about the work God is doing in the situation. The truth is, our words show where our faith is. Do we have faith in the strength of the problem or is our faith in the strength of God to change them?
Today I want to encourage you to speak what you believe God is doing in your life. If you are sick and have asked for healing, believe He is healing you and speak it. If you are in debt and asked for wisdom and help getting out, believe He is bringing you the solution and talk about that instead. Maybe you need employment, a home or transportation? Ask God and then believe and talk about the provision that is coming your way. He promised to answer when you call on Him, why not began to talk about that instead of all the weight of carrying problems yourself. Believe the promises of God today that He gave you in His word and speak those in place of your current struggle.
