HOW REVELATION WORKS 3
“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe and therefore speak;”, (2 Corinthians 4:13). The preceding Scripture affirms that faith expresses itself in words. We have discovered that it takes faith for revelation to work wonders in our lives. According to 2 Corinthians 4:13, when we speak what we believe, we activate our faith.
Whenever God has a vision to do something new, He starts the process by declaring what He intends to achieve. When He wanted to deliver the Israelites from the grip of the Egyptians, He spoke to Moses, “I have come to deliver My people from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them to a land flowing with milk and honey.” (paraphrased).
After you have received an understanding of God’s Word speak the Word. When you are inspired by an idea, talk about it. Why? An ancient proverbs answers that question with the expression, “A man shall be satisfied by the fruit of his lips.” Put in another way, what you say is what you will see. If you say you will never get a job because you don’t know the people in high places, you will be unemployed for a long time. If you say you will get employed irrespective of your challenges, get ready, you will soon receive your letter of appointment.
One man who spoke what he believed despite the prevailing circumstances was Thomas Edison. Every time he failed in his attempt to invent the electric bulb, he was noted to say to his assistant “We have only discovered another way it will not work, we are now closer to the answer.”. He failed about 999 times before he finally succeeded in creating the first electric bulb.
When the symptoms persist, say “By His wounds, I am healed.” When your outward circumstances are saying you are failing, declare you are a success. Your miracle is on the way. Remember “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
