FAITH BELIEVES AND SPEAKS

FAITH BELIEVES AND SPEAKS

 

Mark 11:22-23 Have faith in God.  For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

 

What is having faith in God? Having faith in God is associated with believing and speaking words. At some time in your life you will need a miracle from God.  It may be for yourself or a loved one.  No doubt you have found yourself in that position.  You may be in great need today with sickness, finances, or some unseen power tormenting you.  You can have a miracle.  The Bible records many miracles.  Some have thought the age of miracles is over, but the day of miracles is not over because there is still a God of miracles.  He is the Almighty God and He changes not.  He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Where is that miracle you need so desperately?  How can you get it?  Where can it be found?  Is it far or is it near? There is a miracle in your mouth.  There is a law in the Bible that says what you believe and speak can change things in your life.  Your miracle is not far from you, it is near.

 

Romans 10:8 says, “But what saith it?  The word is nigh thee even in thy mouth and in thy heart: that is the word of faith which we preach.v. 9 That is thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. v. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

 

If you want a miracle start believing and speaking God’s Word and God’s will for your life. What is the greatest miracle anyone can receive?  Salvation. How does the miracle of salvation come into someone’s life?  Believing and speaking. If it will bring the greatest miracle, it will bring every other miracle. The hinge that opens the door to the greatest miracle was the hinge of faith, which is believing and speaking. We do not have to go to Heaven to get salvation, healing, or deliverance.  We do not have to send away for it, it is nigh thee even in our mouth (Rm. 10:8). “But I cannot do such a thing.”  You were made and created to do it.

 

Genesis 1:26 says Let us make man in our image- resemblance; representative; figure; after our likeness; fashion; like us; manner; model; shape; similitude and let them have dominion…v. 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. What is the dominant image and likeness we see in chapter one of Genesis? Yes, God is a spirit and man is a spirit. Yes, God is a Trinity-Father, Son, Holy Spirit and man is a trinity, spirit, soul, and body.

 

Notice “God said” is mentioned ten times in the first chapter (Genesis1:3 ,6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 28, 29). The first thing revealed about God is that He speaks words and they come to pass. God is a Spirit being who speaks. Hebrews 11:3 calls all of that speaking in Genesis as faith, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” God is therefore a God of faith or a faith God. Putting them together we could rightly say that God is a faith speaking Spirit being.

 

Remember, “Let us make man after our image and likeness…” and one of those is as a faith speaking spirit being. We don’t speak our faith to create something out of nothing like God. We speak our faith to respond to what He has promised and provided through Jesus Christ.  When we are born again we are called New Creations in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). It is said of this new creation in 2 Corinthians 4:13, “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.”

 

During this war with the invisible enemy called “coronavirus,” I am believing and saying, “No weapon formed against my family and I shall prosper Isaiah 54:17; I am believing and saying, “No evil shall befall me neither shall any plague come nigh my dwelling Psalm 91:10.”
