11 August 2022: THE STEPS OF ABRAHAM’S FAITH (3) – Genesis 15:1-2

Let us continue from where we stopped yesterday.

5) Call those things (the problem) what God called them.
Abraham began to call those things that be not as though they were.
How did Abraham come into that? That’s what happened when God changed the name of Abraham. The name of Abraham before that time was “Abram”, meaning “high father,” and then God changed it to Abraham (Gen. 17:4-6). “Abraham” means “the father of a multitude.” Consider this, for 24 years after God spoke to Abraham, his condition remained the same. However, in the 24th year, God changed the name of Abram to Abraham. What He did was that He put the miracle, the outcome, and the promise in his mouth, and in nine months he got his miracle. Abraham began to call himself by his promise. God also changed the name of Sarai to Sarah meaning “mother of a multitude (Gen. 17:15-16).”

They both began to address themselves by their new names which were a confession of God’s promises and what did not happen in 24 years happened in nine months! This happened when they began to “call those things that be not as though they were”.

Many people disparage the message of “calling things that be not as though they were”, not knowing it is God’s way of operating. If you are going to see the power of God operate in your life, you have to change your language to that of God’s word; you have to call the things that be not as though they were.

That is walking in the steps of Abraham’s faith. God got Abraham and Sarah to agree with Him by changing their names and that is the major reason for the change of names.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for your precious thoughts towards me. Help me by Your Holy Spirit to continually speak the same thing as You have spoken concerning my matter in Jesus’ name. Amen!
