Words And Faith Go Hand In Hand
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak (2 Corinthians 4:13).
Our words carry our faith. Words are one of faith’s ways of expressing itself. Faith doesn’t just float up to the Lord from our hearts in silence. Our faith is carried to Him with Words. So, if you never say what you believe, then you have dead, lifeless, nonworking faith!
From salvation throughout the rest of our lives, words carry out what we believe. That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9-10). Faith for salvation is carried to the Father with our words. And faith for everything else He provides for us in Christ is carried to Him in the same way, with words!
You may say, I don’t know where my faith is. But you can always locate where you are in faith about any matter in your life. Ask yourself, what am I saying about this particular situation? You see, what you say is your faith speaking!
That’s why it’s so important to say only what you believe! Say what the Word says even if you don’t seem to believe it at first. You may say it trembling with hesitation, but say it anyway! Voice with His stripes I am healed even while the pain is in your body. Say it in the face of the negative report from the doctor. In the face of apparent lack, say my God is meeting all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. The Lord is my Shepherd, I do not want! Align your words with God’s Word and God’s power will begin to manifest to bring your Words to pass!
God created the worlds with words. Hebrews 11:3, NLT reads: By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.To a large degree, you create your world with your words. What will you have in your tomorrows? What will your life be like in the future? To a large extent, your tomorrows will reveal what you’ve been speaking today!
If you’ve not been speaking what the Word says aloud about what you believe about your healing, your finances, your relationships, your past, your present, your future, your job, your marriage, your children, then start today! Break the chains of unbelief off your life by confessing what the Bible says about who you are in Christ OUT LOUD!
If you do this, before long, things will begin to change. The Father watches for those who will have the guts to believe His Word in the face of the contradiction of negative circumstances. God’s Word voiced with your words have the power to change your life and circumstances. His Word will not fail you if you will only act on it and speak it in the face of adversity.
I’ll leave you with Jesus’ commentary on the issue of your words:
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says (Mark 11:23).
