I have heard people say, "Those people who confess God's Word and say the promises of God over and over are just trying to act like God!"

Yes! That's exactly what we're trying to do: Act as God would act in a similar situation.

We know how God would act in a bad situation because of what He did in Genesis 1:3. He saw darkness over the earth, and He said, "Light!" What did He do? He spoke the thing desired. Some will say, "But that was God." That's right, that was God.

But in Genesis, God also said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth" (Gen. 1:26).

How was man going to have dominion? You can understand how Adam could run the jack rabbit out of the cabbage, but what was he going to do when the elephant began tromping down the cabbage?

God said for him to subdue it. He was to do it the same way God did - with the power of faith-filled words. He was to subdue the earth, and he was to do it God's way.

When he saw something that he didn't like, it was his responsibility to change it. He was to change it the way God changed things - speaking faith-filled words.

Jesus said,"...What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them" (Mark 11:24).

In other words, pray the desire; don't pray the thing that you don't desire. Speak the thing desired, even when you pray.
