God sees our destiny and speaks identity into us in the present. He doesn’t just pronounce it … He wants us to perceive it too. The outcome that He sees propels our present learning, and accelerated growth occurs when we walk with Him to create a pathway from now to then.
1. The way you see yourself determines how you speak to yourself.
That’s why your identity statement (how you talk about yourself) is really important. Because He sees our destiny and then speaks to it in us, God then begins to deal with us from the viewpoint of destiny perceived not just destiny pronounced. He loves to declare your destiny. And when He declares, “This is how I see you,” He pronounces something so that you may see it. And you’re going to have a problem until you see.[01:27]
2. When God declares your identity, negativity is the first obstacle He removes.
God calls Moses as a deliverer, and all his insecurity and inferiority rises up. And he says, “I am not a man of eloquent speech … and I can’t do this and I can’t do that.” And the Lord says these words, “See, I have made you as God to Pharaoh.” I’m going to send you down there not as a person who is below where Pharaoh is in authority, but as a person higher than Pharaoh.[02:21]
3. God’s promises bring us into alignment with Him.
All the promises of God are chiropractic in nature. They all make adjustments on you. All the promises of God are designed to adjust you, adjust your posture, so that you [go from] “I don’t know if I can really do this or not” to “Yeah, I think I can handle that.” They get you to stand up, walk differently, they touch your posture, how you stand, how you position yourself, how you talk. They elevate things in you.[04:55]
