Calling the things that are NOT…


Yesterday I heard of a story where a certain guy had been working hard for a promotion in his job but couldn’t get it. He tried so much to impress his bosses but to no avail. He also prayed about it. So this guy took it to another level; he began tithing based on the position he had been working so hard for…

Well, if you don’t know the rest of the story; in summary this is now one of the richest people in the world now. Gents and ladies, there is faith that moves God!!

Faith as defined in Hebrews 11; is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. In other words, it is calling the things that are not as though they are. Of course this doesn’t make sense to non-believers, and I’m afraid to some believers. The irony is this. You believe Jesus is the son of God, right? Then why do you stop there? If you really believe He is the son of God who died to atone for your sins, then why not believe everything else that pertains to that? The word tells us that we have received of His fullness, grace for grace. I cannot even begin defining HIS fullness!! If we exercised even a little of His fullness, I need not mention how much exploits we will witness. Christianity in itself is by faith. Nobody has seen Christ but by faith we believe He was, is and will forever be with us. That is why we are proud to be associated with Christ.

See, most of us like to eat a little piece of the pie! And you know what the problem is? A certain friend of mine told me ‘it’s too good to be true’. Their minds have been corrupted to think good things come to those who must work hard. My Bible tells me good things come to those who believe. That is not to imply we must not work hard! No. It is to mean that even against the prevailing conditions, the grace of God, by faith is abundant for us…who believe.

Faith is the most important element in a Christian’s life. It is what distinguishes us as believers. There are those with little faith and those with weak faith. Little faith is as a result of lack of knowledge of the word. Weak faith is a result of failure of exercising the word of God regarding you. I believe most of us are in the latter category. We know the truth but fail to act on it. Do you know what they call someone who knows the truth but does not act on it? They call him/her a fool. In fact in Law, it is an offense warranting punishment. I even believe God will be disappointed witchu for knowing who you are in relation to Him but still living in anguish, sorrow, poverty, failure etc. You will stand more accountable than that person who never knew at all.

Everyone has been dealt a certain measure of faith. The kind of lifestyle you want to live depends on the level at which you are willing to exercise your faith. Let us desire to furnish ourselves with the word of God by reading and meditating upon it. I trust that the more of the word we read, the more we get acquainted with our rights in Christ. Then we shall get the confidence to grow our little faith and strengthen our weak faith.

I believe in Mark 11:22-24!!

Begin calling the things that are not as though they are; cause in reality THEY ARE!!
