When you look at the Bible, it speaks of so many wonderful things concerning us. For example, it says, we are overcomers in Christ Jesus; we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. It says we have overcome because greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. It also says, “By the stripes of Jesus we were healed”. There is the past tense of the word of God.
If you don’t understand the difference between your position before God and your circumstance before men, you will think that those past tenses are not relevant to you; you may conclude they are lies. No, they are true but you have to apply your faith to God's promise and your circumstance and this will now transform your circumstance into a reflection of your position before God. This is what the subject of faith is all about.
However, many people don’t apply enough patience to understand that subject and how God operates. God calls those things that be not as though they were, and He never thinks for once that what He says is not going to come to pass. He knows the future more than we know the past. He talks about the future with as much certainty as you talk of yesterday.
Beloved, the only person that has a great past, but a terrible future is the devil. When it concerns you, it can only get better. You might have had a bad past, be sure that the future will be better. That is what God has offered you. Find the scripture that gives you a settled promise by God and turn it into your own reality. You can always create your future from the scriptures.
Lord, I judge you faithful and I believe that your words are true. I receive adjustments taking place for me, my circumstances turning into my position before God in Jesus’ name. Amen.
