“Romans 4 says to ‘call the things that are not as though they were.’ That simply means that you shouldn’t talk about the way you are. Talk about the way you want to be. If you’re struggling in your finances, don’t go around saying, ‘Oh, man, business is so slow. The economy is so down. It’s never going to work out.’ That’s calling the things that are as if they will always be that way. That’s just describing the situation. By faith you have to say, ‘I am blessed. I am successful. I am surrounded by God’s favor.’”
“Being content doesn’t mean that we don’t want change, that we give up on our dreams, or that we settle where we are. It means we’re not fighting everything. We’re not frustrated.

“God made you as you are on purpose. He gave you your looks, your height, your skin color, your nose, your personality. Nothing about you is by accident. You didn’t get overlooked. You didn’t get left out. God calls you His masterpiece.

They may not all be true right now, but as you continue to speak them, they will become a reality. ‘I am blessed. I am prosperous. I am successful.’ ‘I am victorious. I am talented. I am creative.’ ‘I am wise. I am healthy. I am in shape.’ ‘I am energetic. I am happy. I am positive.’ ‘I am passionate. I am strong. I am confident.’ ‘I am secure. I am beautiful.

“In other words, don’t talk about the way you are. Talk about the way you want to be.”
“Can I tell you, we are living in the good old days. Twenty years from now you’ll look back and say, ‘Wow! That was one of the best times of my life.’ Don’t miss it living discontentedly.”
