Good things began to happen to David almost immediately because he started looking at his world through eyes of blessing rather than eyes of failure. Even as he overcame the lion and the bear, he knew he could overcome giants. And just as he took authority and overcame everything that threatened his ascent to the throne, you must take authority and overcome everything that threatens your ascent into your DESTINY.
God changed the way Abraham talked so that he called forth what God saw him as already blessed with (Gen. 17:5). Despite the pain, call forth your healing. Change the way you talk. See the way God meant it to be, and start calling forth your healing and wholeness!
"God gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did." - Romans 4:17
Regardless of what kind of prison you are in or what problem threatens to defeat you, if you want God to come into your cell, you must resist the temptation to grumble, murmur, and complain. You have to make the decision to praise Him instead.
"And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them." - Acts 16:25
I see myself with victory. I visualize where God wants me to be. Then, I act as if I am already there.
My speech demonstrates the power of God's Spirit in my life.
Whenever someone tells me that God is not going to deliver me, I just tell them "He's already delivered me in the name of Jesus."
Hebrews 12:1 - "Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,"
The race is not one as we normally think. The Strong's definition includes contention, battle, conflict. There is a contending for the earth and the Kingdom that is now. We often wonder in the natural, "How?"
We think of a race and it causes us in the natural to feel "hurry" but this is not God's way. Jesus was never in a hurry; never did He worry. Our race is contending for the Kingdom with accuracy and right timing.
