We have discussed the first two steps yesterday as identifying what you need and finding out God's promise that covers what you are looking for from the word of God.
1.PUT THE PROMISE IN YOUR MOUTH
The third step is putting the promise of God in your mouth or putting it in your prayers. Until you put the promise of God in your mouth, it is not going to work. Don’t ever go to pray about anything until you find out what God has said about it. Genuine, scriptural prayer is actually praying the word of God. The Bible says, “My word shall not return to me void” (Is. 55:11). That is, the word of God must be returned back to him. Isaiah 43:26 says, “Put me in remembrance”. What are you are going to put Him in remembrance of? Not problems! He already knows about them, but His promise. God always gives His promise in place of a problem. For every problem that exists in your life, there is a promise of God in the Bible that is available to solve that problem.
2.ACT ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE
Abraham changed his actions and caused it to line up with the promise of God. Begin to do things in line with your confession. Don’t cancel your confession and your faith with wrong actions. No matter how small it is, put some actions to your faith.
3.CALL THOSE THINGS THAT BE NOT AS THOUGH THEY WERE.
This is why God gave Abraham a new name. What God did was that He put the miracle, the outcome, and the promise in Abraham's mouth; and in nine months he got his miracle. Many people disparage the message of "calling things that be not as though they were", not knowing that it is God’s way of operating! IF YOU ARE GOING TO SEE THE POWER OF GOD OPERATE IN YOUR LIFE, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR LANGUAGE TO THAT OF GOD’S WORD!
As you pray today, take some time to call forth those things that be not as though they were and determine to carry out corresponding actions in line with your confessions. It is well with you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
