"...Even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were" (Rom. 4:17).
We are to call those things which be not as though they were. As someone once said, "We don't want to get that mixed up. God didn't say to call those things which are as though they were not."
In other words, God didn't say to deny the symptoms, the circumstances or the problems. We're not supposed to say, "No, I don't have any pain. No, there aren't symptoms in my body."
No, we are to call those things that be not as though they were. You might say, "Well, I don't feel healed. But thank God, the Bible says I am, so I believe I'm healed. I don't feel strong; but the Bible says I am, so I believe I'm strong."
Talk about healing as though it already existed in your body. Say, "It doesn't matter what my body feels like; by Jesus' stripes, I was healed. It doesn't matter what the problem is; no weapon formed against me shall prosper (Isa. 54:17). Since God is for me, no one can stand against me (Rom. 8:31). So I believe I receive my healing by faith!"
