“As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. -Genesis 17:4‭-‬5 NKJV

People often call it how they see it. That’s exactly what we should NOT do if the circumstances are negative. We’re to call the situation how we want it to be.

God changed Abram’s name to Abraham. Abraham means father of many. So, every time he tells someone his name, he’s telling them he’s the father of many. Anytime he’s called by someone, they are calling him father of many. Without a single child, God had him calling himself father of many. Eventually, Abraham got to a point where he was totally convinced he would be a father of many. And it came to pass.

We can and should apply the same strategy. We should call ourselves or a situation something that it’s currently not.

Abram didn’t have any children at the time, but he called himself a father of many. We may have little to no money in the bank, but we should call ourselves wealthy. We may be barren now, but we should call ourselves a mother/father of two. We may feel unwell, but we decree we’re healed.

Anything we want to be, say it. Saying what we desire will strengthen our faith and change any negative into a positive.
