Genesis 2:19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.

“God’s original intent for mankind’s mouths was for creation and not communication.” –Pastor B. Winston

God gave Adam the responsibility of naming all the animals. Whatever Adam called them, that was its name. He called this winged creature an eagle and a mooing creature a cow. Whatever Adam called it, that’s what is was going to be.

Adam is our prototype. This same design was built in us. Whatever we call the things in our lives, that’s what it’s going to be. If we call our marriage problematic, that’s what it’s going to be. If we call our children dumb or bad, that’s what they’re going to be. If we proclaim we hate our jobs, that will be our experiences. Proverbs 18:21 says, death and life are in the power of the tongue.

If we want to change our lives, we have to renew our minds (Rom. 12:2). The renewing of our minds will change our confession and our confession will change our lives. Let’s create the life we want by calling whatever we desire into existence.
