Apostle Grace Lubega
Romans 4:17 (KJV); 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.
By His very nature, God calls the things that are not as though they were. In the language of God, the things pertaining to your life are a past-tense issue. Your healing is in the past, your deliverance is in the past, and the restoration of your marriage and ministry are all past.
God does not think He will heal you in the future, He knows that He already did so. He healed even what may afflict a man’s body ten years from now.
When He speaks of His blessings in Ephesians 1:3, the Bible says that He has BLESSED us with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. In God’s language, there is no such thing as ‘I am going to bless you.’
When He speaks of healing in 1 Peter 2:24, He does not say, ‘You will be healed.’ Rather, the language of the scripture is, ‘ye WERE healed.’
What does this teach us?
Never put a future tense to the promises of God regarding any matter in your life; not only is doing so an error in the spirit, but by that, you also separate yourself from these promises using the future.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Never put a future tense to the promises of God regarding any matter in your life; not only is doing so an error in the spirit, but by that, you also separate yourself from these promises using the future.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the great and precious promises that you have given unto me. I understand the language of the Spirit and can never error in speech. It is by this very language that I possess the many blessings that You have availed to me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
