We call Abraham “father” not because he got God’s attention by living like a saint, but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody. Isn’t that what we’ve always read in Scripture, God saying to Abraham, “I set you up as father of many people.” Abraham was first named “father” and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing.
When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do. And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples. God himself said to him, “You’re going to have a big family, Abraham!” ~Romans 4:17-18 (The Message Bible)
We are to call things as though they were according to the Word of God. Abraham had to transition from a possible situation to an impossible situation. In the natural Abraham could not see this. In the spirit realm it was already done.
Abraham heard from God then he had to believe what God had said would happen. Just like Abraham we must be believe what God’s Word says about our situation and hold on until that word manifest in our life. We must mediate on that word and confess the Word of God out loud for yourself, nation, and church.
In the Word it says that God is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him. He has exalted His Word above His name.
~ Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that He should lie; nor the son of man that He should repent: hath He not said, shall He not do it? Or hath He not spoken, shall He not do it?
God is the God of the impossible! All things are possible to those who believe. There are promises in the Word that apply to your situation. Take hold of the Word and apply them. Let the Word do the work!
