“And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be” Genesis 15:5
For starters, I would like to highlight three words out of this scripture: Look; Tell; and Be (the last "be" at the end of the scripture)
Look: to turn one's eyes toward something; to use one's sight or vision in seeking, searching
Tell: to make known by speech or writing; to announce or proclaim; to have force or effect
Be: to exist or live: to take place; happen; occur
God tells Abram to look out from where he was, to see beyond the situation he is in, then he tells him to speak that what he see and if we are able to see, if we are able to speak it, than so shall it be and so shall thy seed be. But if we see nothing, we cannot speak anything, and if we cannot speak anything then there will be nothing. God envisioned the creation of the world and then God spoke it into existence. God thought Light, then spoke “Let there be light” and there was. God “looked”, God “told, and it “became so”. God had a vision of the world, then God spoke the vision, and then it became so! Were made in the image of God, we have the same authority and we must use it for good and for the glory of God to manifest in all aspects of our lives.
We must SEE the vision and then we must SPEAK the vision and not only will we see it manifest in our lives but the lives of our children. The scripture says “so shall thy seed be” We must SEE a future for ourselves; We must SPEAK a future for ourselves; We must SEE a future for our children; We must speak a future for our children and it shall BE. Adversely if we see negativity we will speak negativity and there will be negativity. If we SEE our children in the future as being a failure, we will SPEAK that failure, and that failure will BE. So we have to be careful what we speak over our children and the very same goes for our personal lives.
SEE the vision; SPEAK the vision; the vision will BE
Be blessed and as always Be ENCOURAGED!!!!
