Don’t Call It Like It Is!

Keeping God #1 in Your Business (PR_Vol_205) 

Call It The Way God Calls It!

Romans 4:17
…God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

Many a time, when we look at ourselves, we don’t see what we can become. But when God looks at us, He sees what we can become by His grace.

When Jesus first saw Simon, whose name in Greek means “reed”, He changed his name to “Peter”, which means “rock”. But did Peter instantly become someone with the characteristics of a rock—solid, stable and unshakable? No, for a long time, he continued to act like a reed that bends every which way the wind blows.

Once, when Peter saw Jesus walking on water, he took a bold step of faith and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” Then, as he was walking on the water, he saw the boisterous wind, got scared and when he began to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” (Matthew 14:28–30) Another time, he said, “Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death.” (Luke 22:33) Then, a few hours later, he denied knowing Jesus not once, but three times. (Luke 22:54–62)

Yet, throughout his reed-like behavior, Jesus kept calling him “rock” until one day, how Jesus saw him began to take root in him. That day, on the Day of Pentecost, Peter stood up to preach and 3,000 people were saved! (Acts 2:41) Peter had indeed become a rock, a pillar in the early church.

That was how Jesus transformed Peter. And that is how God wants us to change the people and situations in our lives.

You might say, “Coach, are you telling me to lie, what if people tell me that I’m not facing reality, what if they say that I've got my head in the clouds and deceiving myself?” – My answer to you is, let them say what they will. So what, it’s your life, and your faith, not theirs.

My friend, God did not tell us to call those things which exist as they exist. What is the point of stating the obvious? It is not going to change anything. No, God tells us to call those things which do not exist as though they did, and they will!

I often tell my wife, “If you have a headache, don’t tell me about it”. Just say, “Father, I thank you that by Jesus’ stripes, I was, and I am healed. I reject these symptoms and I command them to stop. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19) and as Jesus is, so am I in this world (1 John 4:17).”  When I hear you say that honey, I now know what the challenge e is, and I will come into agreement with you by saying Amen! - Jesus certainly does not have a headache.

Beloved, in our household, God honors His word all the time and He will do likewise in your household if you put Him in remembrance of His word (Isaiah 43:26), and call things the way He calls them. He said, Let the weak say, “I am strong” (Joel 3:10).
