Speaking Our Faith

Do you know that you have creative power within you? We as believers have the same power within us that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now, that is power!

"By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible." (Hebrews 11:3)

As God's children, we can also speak our world into existence by our faith. We can make our own reality. Therefore, it is very important to choose our words wisely.

"He [Abraham] is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not." (Romans 4:17)

Abraham was a true man of faith. For one, he fathered children late in his life. As his descendants, we are also people of faith.

Jesus tells us to, “Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)

When we do, we have the power and authority to speak to the mountains in our lives. The so-called mountains can be any obstacles, problems, issues, or hindrances in our natural circumstances. They will obey and move out of the way.

“….if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” (Mark 11:23)

Literally, we can have that same kind of faith. We are joint heirs with God and co-heirs with Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:17)

Therefore…“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.” (Luke 17:6)

And…“…if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)

Jesus told the blind while restoring their sight, “According to your faith let it be done to you”. (Matthew 9:29) In the same way, when we have that kind of faith, miracles also happen for us.

First, we have to believe in the one and only God. When we diligently seek Him, He will reward us. (Hebrews 11:6) We also must line up our words with our faith. Therefore, whatever we believe Him for at the time, that is what we need to speak out loud. And...speak it out consistently until those mountains move out of the way.
