Romans 4:17 - "Even God who quickeneth the dead, and called those things which be not as though they were."
Many people know what it means to have "common sense", which is sound, practical judgment. "Christian sense", on the other hand, involves seeing adverse circumstances through the eyes of faith and exercising your God-given authority to change those circumstances.
Jesus taught His disciples how to change negative circumstances. The Bible tells us that He cursed a fig tree with words and with 24 hours it dried up from its roots (Mark 11:12-14; 20,21). In verses 22 and 23, Jesus explains how to achieve these kinds of results. In today's language He would probably say, "Have the God-kind of faith. Declare what God's Word says about your circumstances, no matter how great they are, and then expect results."
Mark 11:22-24 - And Jesus answered them, "Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours."
THERE IS NO ADVERSE CIRCUMSTANCE IN MY LIFE THAT I CANNOT OVERCOME WITH THE GOD-KIND OF FAITH.
WHEN MY WORLD IS OUT OF ALIGNMENT I CAN GET IT BACK INTO ALIGNMENT.
Romans 6:11 - "Likewise reckon ye yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord."
I DEEM MYSELF TO BE DEAD TO SIN, ENERGIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT TO WALK IN THE RESURRECTION POWER OF JESUS CHRIST.
Song of Solomon 4:16 - "Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my Beloved come into His garden, and eat His pleasant fruits."
This is a new day, let the Son arise with healing in His wings and let the wind of God take you to a new realm of faith and understanding in this hour for such a time as this.
Choose life, and to live that life abundantly. It's not too late, it's time to begin again. It is the time for a new season of love and drinking of the new wine. It's time to be intoxicated with His love and come into the chamber – into His presence to meet with Him. He will meet with you in that secret place and show you the secrets of His heart.
This is a time of consecration and separation of the world; but not of your relationships that are God ordained and in covenant commitment. Put off the old man and PUT ON THE NEW (Ephesians 4:24). This is an exhortation to discover and move forward in God's CALLING ON YOUR LIFE.
Leave the familiar and breaking the cycle of your fleshly desires, ways and mind-sets -- break the lies that say the grass is greener on the other side, when in fact the grass is dried up, full of weeds and thorns – where there is no water or life in the carnal ways of man.
