God calls into being things that do not exist. Therefore, as His children, we should imitate Him by doing the same. We demonstrate our faith when
we refuse to focus on our circumstances. Instead, we focus on what God
has said. When we do, we will see the things we say and believe come to

  1. God brings into existence things that do not exist and brings to nothing things that do exist (1 Corinthians 1:26-28, AMP).
    1. From the world’s perspective, our faith in God and His Word is foolish.
      1. According to society, tithing doesn’t make sense.
      2. Believers should not care about looking foolish to the world.
      3. We loose our faith through our confessions, which also seems foolish to the world.
      4. God calls those things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17-21).
    2. The physical things we see now are temporal (they are subject to change).
    3. The spiritual substance we cannot see is eternal; it is powerful.
    4. The spiritual world is the parent of the physical world.
      1. Everything came from God, who is a spirit.
      2. The physical matter, including circumstances and situations, is physical substance.
      3. We can use spiritual substance to change physical substance.
      4. Spiritual laws supersede physical laws.
      5. Jesus superseded the law of gravity when He walked on water.
  2. We must focus on the spiritual substance we cannot see (2 Corinthians 4:13-18).
    1. The words we say are the evidence of what we believe.
    2. We must do our part by actively engaging in faith and staying focused on the Word.
    3. Faith will change what is seen.
      1. Sickness, lack, and difficulties have to bow down or submit to faith.
      2. As Believers, we have authority over this physical world.
  3. Principles that God has ordained:
    1. God uses words to create what he wants to exist.
    2. Christians have the same ability. For example, when there is lack in your life, call forth abundance to replace it.
    3. Say what you believe is true according to the Word. This is not denying what exists.
    4. We speak the desired result.
    5. When you need healing, say what the Bible says, “By his stripes I am healed.”
    6. Abraham was in a hopeless situation when God called him the Father of many nations.
    7. Instead of focusing on the circumstances (his age), he chose to believe God’s Word.
