“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11:3).
The word translated ‘framed’ in the opening Scripture is the Greek word ‘katartizo’, meaning to repair, frame, perfect, mend, and restore. This lets us know that by applying the right faith principles, you can frame, repair, restore, or recreate your world. Through faith, we understand that God framed the material world – the visible world – from the unseen, revealing to us the power of faith.
Another word to study in our theme verse is ‘worlds’, which is translated from the Greek word ‘aiōn’. It refers to the structure and administration of one’s life; how things go with you from day to day, including how they affect your hopes and aspirations. It also refers to the world’s system with respect to socio-economic structures and environmental management of a period in human history, including its arts and sciences.
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:1-3). God saw that the earth was without form, totally empty and shrouded in darkness, and then He spoke! His Word gave the earth form and filled it with life. He created everything you see by speaking them into existence!
Now, if the successive ages of men and societies were framed by God’s prophetic words and we’re born after Him, it follows that we have the right to determine what should happen in our lives and in our world. You’re to reprogram your life and create your future with the words you speak. If you haven’t been doing this, begin today to frame your life, your world, and your times! What kind of life do you want to have in the next ten, twenty, or thirty years? It all depends on you.
Many who are in debt, defeat, despondency, sickness, and frustration today framed their lives that way many years ago with their words. If that has happened to you, here’s the good news: you can begin to reprogram your life with the Word, and it starts first, by changing your way of thinking. The Apostle Paul said in Romans 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
God made the whole world by speaking forth words. As His children, we have the same creative power inherent in us because we’re made in His image and in His likeness. There’s a creative force in us to frame the kind of life and environment we desire. We can alter our destinies and change the course of events in our world through faith-filled words.
Through the ministry of the Word, you experience a metamorphosis – a transformation in your life and circumstances from glory to glory. You’re able to scrutinize and disallow illegal transactions and imports such as sickness, poverty, death, and defeat in your life.
This is the key to recreating your life and fulfilling your dreams. Speak forth today what you want to see in your life and frame your world. As you utter words of faith, the Holy Spirit will incubate them and make them a reality. It makes no difference what has happened in your life in the past; there’s hope for a change and the power for that change is in your mouth. Speak words of faith, blessings, and power, and recreate your world.
