2 CORINTHIANS 4: 6-13
”For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. Romans 10:10
What you claim to believe in your heart must be expressed through your mouth, to strengthen your faith.
When you believed that Jesus Christ died for your sins and He is the only one who has power to save you, you confessed your sins and His Lordship over your life to experience salvation.
In the same way, whatever you truly believe you must confess it in order to receive it.
The language of faith therefore is the confession of the promises of God and declaration of them over your life and your situations.
Always say what God l is saying concerning your circumstance and not what your circumstance is saying.
As you keep on speaking the language of faith over that situation, the answer will come. The answer will be according to the promises of God you have been declaring.
God is faithful. The bedrock of our confession is because God says so. Speak the language of faith. You shall not be put to shame. God will back you up. Speak His word back to Him. He gave you those words to help you. He is teaching you to be like Himself. What God believes, He speaks to have it. The just must walk by faith and not by sight. If you are speaking to your situation and it appears not to have changed, keep speaking to it. The change will come.
When Jesus cursed the fig tree, it did not wither immediately. There was no sign of response to the word of the Lord. The breeze was still blowing the green leaves of the fig tree that He cursed. Everything was still intact on that tree. It was still looking very healthy. If you look at that tree the way it was, you may doubt the power in the word of the Lord.
But if you can wait till the following day, you will discover that the same tree that was looking very fresh and green had completely died and withered.
Learn to walk by faith and not by sight. The reason why you doubt God is because you are praying with your eyes and not with your heart. The enemy may be laughing at you because your condition is still the same.
Forget about that laughter which is a physical thing. There is something happening for you in the realm of the spirit. Your God is at work for you.
Thought For The Day:
Live by faith, walk by faith and pray by faith. Believe God.
Song For The Day:
Believe it shall be well, believe in Jesus it shall be well.
Bible Reading For The Day:
