"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" (Rom. 4:17 KJV).

We study Noah's faith and Abraham's faith and others. We praise and thank God for them.

But I am here to tell you that in order to fulfill its mission in the end times, the church of the Lord Jesus Christ will have to step up another notch. So why not study the highest level of faith, the faith of God himself? We must develop a lifestyle of operating in the God-kind of faith.

Romans chapter 4:17 tells us about God's methodology of faith. Darby's translation says that God calls things that be not as "being." The Revised Standard Version says that God calls into existence the things that do not exist. The 20th Century translation says that God speaks of what does not yet exist as if it does.

Then Ephesians 5:1 tells us that we should imitate God.

In order for us to imitate God, we must have the ability to act like Him and to get His results. God speaks, believes what He says, and it comes to pass. Well, we can do the same because Jesus told us to speak to the mountain and it'll move (Mark 11:22-24). But what makes us able to do that?

Genesis 1:26 says that we are made in the image and likeness of God. Psalm 8 says that we are made a little lower than Elohim (God) Himself. It says that we are crowned with His glory (or anointing) and honor. And out of all that God has made, it is man that He takes time to fellowship with.

So, with God in us, Jesus said to speak to the mountain just like God spoke the world into existence. In other words, we are to have the faith that God has.

When the Word says you are blessed then say you're blessed. When the Word says you are healed then say you're healed. When the Word of God says you are provided for say you're provided for.

Go ahead. Develop a lifestyle of stirring up the Word of God in your life. Dare to speak as God speaks, and you will see your life blessed beyond your dreams.
