Abraham didn’t start in the fullness of faith at the beginning; he grew in it and had to learn the ways and operations of God in his walk with Him. For example, it took him 24 years to learn how to put the promise of God in his mouth for it to manifest in his life. This is one of the key principles in the walk of faith that pleases God: calling things that be not as though they were (Rom. 4:17).
This principle confuses many concerning the subject of confession and possession. People have variously labelled the subject of faith with many derisive terms such as “name it, claim it” and all kinds of funny tags like that. However, the Bible makes it clear that without faith, it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6).
When the Bible talks of faith, it talks of faith as the Christian doctrine but also talks of faith as a force that causes you to live the Christian life and experience here on the earth by possessing all that Jesus had wrought for you in redemption.
You may know all the doctrines of “the faith” and be sick or be oppressed by the devil or even be unable to fulfil your destiny. The faith that makes you able to fulfil your destiny is the one we are dealing with – Abraham’s kind of faith. In the latter portion of Romans 4:17, the things referred to are intangible, but God called them as though they were. Please, note that the Bible doesn’t say “God calleth the things that are as though they are not” but that He “calleth the things that be not as though they were.”
PRAYER: Father, thank You for showing me that I cannot please You without faith in You. Help me to grow in faith as I continue to daily take these steps of faith in Jesus’ name. Amen!
