“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God…”
– Hebrews 11:3
After the mental creation of the heavens and the earth, God began to speak into existence those things that God saw with his “mind’s eye.” God did not just aimlessly speak those creative words, “Let there be…” but God believed in the words that was he speaking. God had faith is his own words when said, “Let there be light.” When these words were spoken, God’s mental concept of light become a physical reality. God trusted that light would move from the invisible place in His mind to the physical plane of the earth.
Just as God framed the worlds through words, we are creating our individual worlds through the words that we speak. Our world consists of everyone with whom we interact and those who are connected to us: our family, our friends, our neighbors, our classmates, etc. Our world also includes everything that is a part of us or has a direct impact on us: our finances, our health, our residences, our places of employment, our communities, our transportation, our local assemblies, our ministries and our businesses.
It is important that we call the world that we desire from the spiritual realm into the natural realm. We have the power to bring our good from the intangible state into the tangible state. We have the authority to bring things from the heavenly place of ideas into the physical place of manifestation. “Whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever you loose on earth is loosed in heaven (Matthew 16:19).” There is value in speaking positive words of affirmation over our world until it completely manifests all that we see in our minds.
