As Christians, we can either be thermometers or thermostats. We can just read our circumstances as they exist, or we can call for the things that we desire based on the promises of God. The stumbling block comes when we think that results should be instantaneous. Realizing what belongs to us in Christ is the light-bulb moment, but setting the thermostat means we continue to speak out of a believing heart–one that is top-of-the line–and it is designed by the Creator to produce what is called for.
