Call It Forth!


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

Romans 4:17

“Pastor Prince, I feel the pain in my body. How can I go around saying that Christ has redeemed me from this sickness? How can I say that by His stripes I am healed?”

Well, God’s way is to call those things that are not as though they are. And because you are made in God’s image, you can also call those things that are not as though they are!

When God wanted to make Abraham a father of many nations, what did He do? He changed the way Abraham talked. At that time, Abraham did not even have a single child from Sarah because she was barren. So how could he become a father of many nations?

God changed the way he talked. How? By changing his name from Abram to Abraham, which means “father of many nations”. (Genesis 17:5)

Just imagine: From then on, every time he met someone, he would say, “Hi, my name is Father Of Many Nations.” Every time dinner was ready, Sarah would call out to Abraham, “Darling… Father Of Many Nations… dinner is ready! Father Of Many Nations…” You can just hear their neighbors saying, “They want a child so much they have gone mad!” But God changed the way Abraham talked so that he called forth what God saw him already blessed with.

You know, when Jesus saw the man with a withered hand, He didn’t say, “My goodness! It is so withered!” He said, “Stretch out your hand!” (Matthew 12:13) He called forth what He wanted. He looked at the paralytic and said, “Rise, take up your bed and go home!” (Matthew 9:6) He didn’t see the way it was in the natural. He saw the way God meant it to be and He called it forth.

Genesis 1 tells us that in the beginning, there was darkness over the face of the whole earth. God saw the darkness and He said, “Light be!” And light was. God called forth what He wanted and it became so! If it had been me or you, we would probably have said, “Whoa! It is so dark!”

My friend, despite the pain, call forth your healing. It is pointless to state the obvious. So change the way you talk. See the way God meant it to be, and start calling forth your healing and wholeness!

Thought For The Day
God’s way is to call those things that are not as though they are.

  16. Christy Harrison says:

    Our church has really received your message of GRACE as a word in season. We have read two of your books and listened to many, many of your sermons on CD. I am asking for your agreement in prayer that my husband and I be healed. My husband is in lots of pain with his shoulder, back, hip and leg – he is diabetic and is going through an episode of bell’s palsy now. I went of a medical mission trip to India and since have had a skin affliction for 6 1/2 years – terrible itching and inflammation mainly on legs but some on arms – it has gone systemic once and I almost died. I’ve seen hundreds of doctors and it could not be diagnosed. WE BOTH BELIEVE that by Jesus’ stripes we WERE healed but have not been able to have healing manifest yet.

  17. amen amen we got a home an we get to keep my grandkid an get the other one back in jesus name amen i love jesus so much thank u jesus thank u jesus lol

  18. Hudson kipapi says:

  20. Amen I receive it.
