Imitators Of God
Therefore be imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]. — EPHESIANS 5:1 (Amplified)
“I’m not going to believe I’ve got something I don’t see!” one preacher said to me.
“Do you believe you have a brain?” I replied.
“Certainly,” he said.
“Have you ever seen it?”
Abraham believed something he couldn’t see. Thomas refused to believe something he couldn’t see. Thomas’ name isn’t listed in the gallery of the heros of faith in Hebrews chapter 11. But Abraham’s name is.
Another person once said to me, “Well, it would be all right for God to call those things which be not as though they were, because He’s God. But it would be wrong for me to do that.”
If it’s wrong for you to do it, it’s wrong for God to do it! Children of the devil act like the devil. Children of God are to act like God. God is a faith God. And we are faith children of a faith God. Because we are faith children of a faith God, we are to act in faith. And faith calls those things which be not as though they were!
Confession: I am the faith child of a faith God. I imitate God, my Father. I follow His example as His well-beloved child. I act in faith. I call those things which be not as though they were. And they become.
