Calls It Like He Sees It

Today's Scripture

…the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not. Romans 4:17, NIV.

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

Just as God calls things that are not as though they were, we should also declare what we want to see in our lives. In other words, you may have days when you don’t feel well, but don’t go around saying, “Ah, my back has been hurting me. I’m getting so old. I don’t think I’m ever going to get better.” When you speak like that, you are speaking defeat into your future. Instead, turn it around. Declare a report of victory by saying, “I may not feel up to par, but I know it’s only temporary. God is restoring health to me. I’m getting stronger, healthier and feeling younger. My best days are still up ahead.”

Remember, you’re going to get what you call in to your life. You have creative power in your words, and you are prophesying your future. Declare what God says about you—call it like He sees it. Declare that you are blessed and cannot be cursed. Declare hope, life and victory over every area of your life!

A Prayer for Today

Father, thank You for entrusting me with Your creative power. I choose to declare words of life and victory. Help me, by Your Holy Spirit, to use my words to move forward in victory the way You have planned in Jesus’ name. Amen.
