GOD’S WORD DOES NOT DESCRIBE ME, IT CREATES ME!
Read the story of Gideon, Judges chapters 6 and 7.
When God calls “the things that be not as though they are,” (as also with Abraham) the power of His proceeding word creates.
Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
We need the freshness of a proceeding word from God, not the dead letter!
