“(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before Him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”
“Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:”
As you grow older in the faith, you ought to be more childlike and less childish. You ought to rejoice always and be full of life as children, seeing yourself through the eyes of God. You ought to accept yourself with joy and dignity because you have been accepted in the Christ, the Beloved (Ephesians 1:6). God wants us to return to the childlikeness of little children.
In your pursuit of excellence and fulfilment of destiny, irrespective of where you are on the journey there, you must learn to enjoy the moment as you bask in the ecstasy of where God is taking you. Be childlike and make laughter out of the moments. Find something to laugh about in your moments as you make daily progress. Though you are not physically there yet, see yourself there with the eyes of faith; and rejoice in expectation of great things to come. The Word says God calleth those things that be not as though they were; He declares the end from the beginning (Romans 4:17-18). Act like God and make every moment fun-full and event-full.
If you are in faith towards God for a child, see yourself taking your children to school and laugh. That is faith; it is the essence of imagination. If you are in faith for a house, see yourself at your house warming; see guests around you celebrating with you. If you are in faith for a scholarship to do your graduate study abroad, go online and begin surfing the net for potential schools and locations. God has given us our imaginations to help our emotions. What you think affects how you feel. As you think in your heart, so are you (Proverbs 23:7).
My Solid Front (Confession): In Jesus’ Name, I declare that henceforth, I see myself the way God sees me. I am blessed, I am whole, I am prosperous, I am never stranded, I am unstoppable, I am fruitful! Amen.
