“By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.” (English Standard Version)
Many Christians know that God created the whole world through His Word. The book of Geneis 1:1-25 talks about the process of creation and how God created everything that we now see by Him simply speaking His Word. We understand from the Bible that the earth was without form, which basically means “empty” (Gen 1:2) but when it got to verse 3, we then begin to see how things that were empty began to manifest as things that we now see.
Verse 3 says, “let there be light”, but if you check the Hebrew version of this verse, it actually says “light be”. God did not have to ask light to come; He commanded light to appear; that is what you call “Ultimate Power”
As Christians, God has given us the power to call things that are not as though they were and that power is His Word through faith. We can see the evidence of this even at the time of creation; God used faith when creating the world. He called things that already existed in the spiritual realm into physical reality.
Since God has given us His word, He expects us to have faith in them so that we can start to manifest the very life that He has prepared for us and call things that are hanging up in the spiritual realm into physical reality.
No one knows what the future holds unless God reveals them to us but God has given Himself to us because the book of John 1:1 says “in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and God Himself was that word”. Genesis records that the Spirit of the Lord was hovering upon the earth and since God is a Spirit, it clearly shows that God is also the very Word that the universe was made with, God spoke it and His Spirit brought it to pass.
It’s high time that we started using the word of God to create things, to restructure our lives and to mould our future. God has given us the building permission (His Word) but He will not come down to build it for us, He expects that we build things ourselves. If what you’re going through is not matching up with what God promised you in His word, then it’s up to you to command those things He has promised to “be” rather just going through life for living sake.
If God promised me a good future, I can decide to start calling that good future to manifestation. However, the simple truth is that the devil will try and manipulate you by saying those things will not work for you even if you see it happening in other’s lives. You have no business having any form of communication with the devil (it’s really time consuming), what you have to do is speak the Word of God (that’s the only thing that shuts him up).
The book of psalm 138:2 says, “God exalts His Word than His name”, which means if He says something, He is obligated to fulfill it, so when you speak His Word according to His will in faith, He will have no choice than to perform it.
I heard a testimony from Jerry Savelle, he said when he and his wife were starting out in the faith journey they had nothing, they had so much debt that they couldn’t afford anything new not even a wooden chair but when they started discovering the promises of God, they were calling those promises into manifestation speaking God’s Word.
They saw a house that they wanted and they started quoting scriptures of owning their own house debt free until it came to pass and everything in the house including table, chairs, TV etc was acquired by standing on the Word of God and confessing it. He said “if it’s in the word of God, then we’ve got to have it”. That’s the mindset you too ought to have––“if it’s in the Word of God, then I’ve got to have it (this includes spiritual things too)”––everything pertaining to life and godliness!
This is the expectation of the Lord from us, He has a good plan for us (Jer 29:11) but we have to stand on that Word. Everything God will do has been done already and they are hanging in the spiritual realm but you have to unhook them by calling what the Lord has promised you into physical manifestation for all eyes to see (it’s not useful to you if it’s sitting in the spirit realm).
Call that job into existence, call those children into physical existence, call that debt free home, that car, those rights, your healing, that business into physical existence. Create your future and everything in it with His Word and believe that what you’re creating is the reality and it will surely come to pass. This doesn’t happen overnight, you’ve got to keep confessing the Word in faith even when you’re faced with challenges and sooner or later the devil will give up once he realizes that his deception no longer works on you.
We are joint heirs with Christ and we have the same rights to the Father’s property as Jesus, so why not start claiming yours now?
