Yesterday we learnt an important principle of the "God-kind" of faith, How God always calls those things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17). These things are intangible, but God called them as though they were. The Bible doesn’t say God calleth the things that are as though they are not, God’s way is that “He calleth the things that be not as though they were.”
In error, many people exercise faith as if they are calling the things that be as though they be not. This is wrong, and anyone exercising faith in this manner doesn’t get the God-kind of outcome. For example, if you are ill—with a feverish symptoms —and you pray, God expects you to possess your healing. The Bible says, “Let the weak say I am strong” (Joel 3:10). Physically and naturally speaking, an ill person will say “I am weak”—this is a fact. But, by faith, if he chooses to speak scripturally, he will say, “I’m strong" according to the word of God. This is the truth!
This is the crucial difference between fact and truth. The God-kind of faith helps you to distinguish between the two. Facts deal with how things appear in the physical but truth deals with how things appear from God’s viewpoint. Don’t deny the symptom you are feeling in your body because it is a fact but consciously choose the truth of God’s word in prayer and the words of your mouth.
Lord, I choose the truth of Your word above the facts. I declare that I am strong physically and financially in Jesus’ name. Amen.
