Call Forth What You Want To See!


Romans 4:17 God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

How does God respond to our problems? For example, how did He respond to the problem of darkness? The Bible tells us that when God saw darkness on the face of the deep, He said, “Let there be light,” and there was light (Genesis 1:3). God saw the light and it was good. He saw good after He spoke! He didn’t speak about the darkness He saw. Instead, He spoke forth what He wanted to see.

We are made in God’s image. And God wants us to deal with the problems in our life by speaking forth what we want to see. Unfortunately, many of us tend to speak about our problems instead. We keep talking about how bad the situation is and then we wonder why the whole situation just seems to get worse!

Now, I am not saying to deny that the problem exists. The darkness was there and God saw it, but He did not speak about what He saw. That’s the first key. Rather, God chose to speak forth what He wanted to see. That is the second key. In fact, He called forth everything of creation—the sun, moon, stars, land animals, sea creatures and vegetation. By simply speaking, He brought all these incredible things into existence.

If we want to see good, then speak the good that we want to see. Don’t say, “This headache is really killing me.” Say, “I am healthy and strong for by Jesus’ stripes I have been healed!” And don’t say, “My boss hates me. He’s always picking on me.” Instead say, “Because I have favor with God, I have favor with my boss!” Call forth the good that you want to see, put faith with it and you will see it!

God wants to bless us. He wants to give us the desires of our heart. We have to learn to see how He sees. He sees all, yet when it comes to us, He sees the blood of Jesus, and therefore only good. So when the negative comes, see how God sees, and call only the good into it. When we do, good comes.
