Of recent, i have been doing a research on what faith that i claim to have is really is. I discovered some truths from the bible that i think i shouldn't keep to myself alone.
I found out that, when it comes to FAITH, i only think its only a thing of my heart, i never realised that my mouth was involved as well.
The Holy Spirit took me through the scriptures where i saw that, FAITH means believing(heart) and saying(mouth) it. 2 Cor 4:13 says "We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I BELIEVED and therefore have I SPOKEN", Most of the time i just declare that i believe in my heart and my mouth is saying something else, David says, "Let the words of MY MOUTH and the meditation of MY HEART be acceptable in thy sight"Psalms 19:14.
As a matter of fact, God also used this principle in creation, when there was darkness, God had to open His mouth to say what He wanted and the bible records that everything He said so was it and God saw it as He had said it.
If God can say in Hebrews that without faith it is impossible to please Him and let everyone that comes to Him must believe, that the just will live by faith and let him that doesn't have faith think he will get anything from Him, moreso, if ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might SAY to this sycamine tree and IT WILL OBEY YOU.
In otherwords, we being made in His image means the same power that is in Gods mouth resides in ours and we can have everything we say just like God.
I now looked at my life, i realised that everything in my life, all that i have, has been as a result of what i had been saying, i had created my world through my mouth, truelly, the lips of the wise shall preserve him, the mouth of the upright shall deliver him and the fools mouth is his destruction and his lips are the snare of his soul- Proverbs 14:3, 12:6, 18:7.
What have you been saying over the situations or challenges or expectations in your life? "We having the same sprit of faith, according as it is written, I BELIEVED, and therefore have I SPOKEN", "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment"2 Cor 4:13&17.
Whatever the affliction( unemployement, marriage, children, money etc) is, speak what has been written about you in Gods' word not the contrary, remember, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY HIS FAITH.
