FAITH SPEAKS

BLOG  36                                  FAITH SPEAKS

Faith speaks because faith has a voice.  Faith has a voice and the voice of faith is the Word of God.  To activate faith it must be spoken.  There is creative power in God’s word, but it must be spoken by faith.  God spoke the world and everything in it into existence by the words of His mouth.  He said, “Light be, and light was.” See Genesis 1.  He had faith in what He spoke.  The language of faith is God’s word.
Angels move on our behalf only when God’s word is spoken. “Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.” Psalms 103:20  As God’s children, we are the voice of His word.  Demons flee when God’s word is commanded.  Mountains (burdens) are removed when spoken to by faith. Mark 11:23  Angels are God’s ministering spirits sent forth to minister (serve) for heirs of salvation. See Hebrews 1:14.  Angels are commanded to operate only by God’s word.  If you speak otherwise, they can’t help!
There is another important part of speaking our faith that comes first.  We must believe it in our hearts.  It is believing in the heart and being totally persuaded that God’s word is true.  That is what causes it to come to pass when it is spoken.  It doesn’t matter what it looks like in the physical realm.  If you have prayed (or spoken) the word of God in faith and believed you received when you prayed (Mark 11:24) according to His will (which is God’s word), you can be confident that He hears you and that you have the petitions that you have asked Him for. 1John 5:14 &15  We can also decree a thing and it will be established unto us and the light will shine on our ways. Job 22:28 (Paraphrased) God has told me many times to just decree a thing to a situation.  I know this works because I have experienced it.  I have had success in speaking to the high winds and to lots of other things.  When we become consistent in speaking to the mountains in our lives, they will begin to listen and will obey us.  We are speaking by our God given authority.  We possess boldness because we know who lives in us as believers and children of God.
We have also been given authority to speak to our bodies.  When experiencing symptoms, we can speak healing scriptures to it.  You have to believe it in your heart and speak and receive healing when you pray. Mark 11:24(receive no matter what it looks like)  Most are speaking the problem instead of the answer.  It takes awhile for the body to listen because usually one is speaking unbelief consistently instead of God’s word.  (Be sure to scroll through my previous blogs on faith and healing.)
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17  We have an inner ear, a spiritual ear that we hear Holy Spirit speak the scriptures to us.
The reason we speak the word of God is because we believe it.  “If you believe it, you will speak it.”  Speaking without believing is only an echo.  Echos have no substance!
“Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” Luke 6:45  Whatever is in a person’s heart, that is what will come out of their mouth.  Meditating on the scriptures in the Bible will keep a person’s mind renewed to what God thinks and says.  Just like we don’t fill up our car’s gas tank one time; we don’t read the word only one time.   We forget what it says, so we must continually be reading and allowing Holy Spirit to change the way we think.
When faith speaks, it speaks the word of God.  Your faith grows as you hear yourself speaking God’s word.  Faith comes quicker when we hear ourselves quoting the scriptures because God’s word is going into our spiritual ears.  We are to believe, “That we have ears to hear and we have eyes to see.” Jesus said in the new testament that we must have ears to hear, meaning that we must understand.  Eyes to see means that our spiritual eyes see into the spirit realm through the Word of God.  Faith is of the unseen realm, but it is more real than the physical.  God is a Spirit and He created everything out of things which do not appear. Hebrews 11:3  When born again by God’s spirit, we are spirit beings first.  We have a soul, which is our will, mind, and emotions, and we live in a body; but the real “born again” person is who we are in the spirit.
In Romans 4:17, “God calls things that be not as though they were and then they are.”  The reason we call things is because we don’t have them, or we desire for them to change.  We have been given authority in the earth to speak to things and Jesus says that they will obey us if we believe in our hearts and speak to it. Mark 11:23  It must obey when we speak God’s word in the name that is above all names.  Jesus’ name is above all names!
Don’t speak the problem, speak the answer.  The answer is the word of God.  If you speak the problem over and over you will be making it bigger than God and you will have more faith in the problem.
We need to develop our faith in God’s word and call for what the promise of God says.  Spiritual forces are in God’s word, it is supernatural (it is alive). Hebrews 4:12  By speaking His word, we are agreeing with Him.  He watches over His word to perform it and His word never returns void. Jeremiah 1:12, Isaiah 55:11  Also, in Psalms 138:2, “He magnifies (exalts) His word above His name” and in Psalms 119:89, reads “Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven (stands firm as the heavens).  You can see why it is vitally important to speak the word of God by our faith.
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer David tells us in Psalm 45.  As we are speaking, it is being written on our hearts.  Don’t talk crooked speech (negative, perverse words).  Crooked speech is anything that is contrary to the word of God.  Our ministering angels will not help if anything other than God’s word is spoken. Psalms 103:20  Satan knows how powerful God’s word is, this is why he wants us to speak other things.
If you get hold of the word of God it will change your attitude.  You will not let fear overcome you as you hear all the woes of the world.  If you get into fear about the world’s situation and speak about what is going on, you are empowering the enemy.  He uses our words against us.  He has been stripped of his power by Jesus on the cross. Colossians 2:15 The god of this world deceives the people of God into accusing each other.  He has no legal right to accuse us now after what Jesus accomplished on the cross.  The blood sits on the mercy seat in heaven as a constant reminder of the price Jesus has paid.  God sees the shed blood all the time.  God always sees us covered with Jesus’ blood, justified, redeemed and cleansed.  All satan has to use against us are lies and deception.  He comes to a person’s mind to change their thinking.  You must know that you are protected and resist him with the word of God.
The devil wants God’s people to be focused on the situations of the world, the economy, and the government all the time instead of being focused on and speaking God’s word.  God’s word is spiritual; it is a spiritual force.  Jesus says in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickens (brings to life); the flesh profits nothing; the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
Words contain powerful energy and energy affects matter. When you speak negative words over your car, your refrigerator, or even your children, long enough, they will begin to obey you.  Jesus taught that all matter responds to faith and words.  Our world is made of substance that is affected and changed by our words.  God proves this in Genesis one when He spoke the world into existence by the words of His mouth .
I have experienced this many times in my own life.  Remember, Jesus told us in Mark 11:23, that we could speak to the mountain and it would obey us if we believed in our hearts. Everything is made up of atoms.  Somehow, they know what we believe, and hear what we say and act accordingly!  We are told that if we do not praise God, the rocks would.  All of creation knows their Creator.
Our thoughts and beliefs produce an energy around us.  Have you ever noticed when you are angry, things go wrong?  Your thoughts and beliefs produce an energy that can be perceived and reacted to.  Someone dear to me has told me that it seems like everybody just likes me.  If you believe that no one likes you, then you put off the type of energy that causes people to be driven away.
I have been told before that people are  drawn to me.  I love people and care about them.  I believe they can feel this.  I never really think about whether they like me or not; I just care about what could happen to them. (I know it’s God)  Love is an energy and it can be felt.  God is love.
We value and esteem God’s word (the Bible) because it is the most powerful and positive book in all the world.  The Bible is God’s word to us and it is His direction for our lives.  We can change what is, by quoting His word. Romans 4:17  God’s word is filled with faith that is why we are told to not let it depart out of our mouths and to keep it before our eyes.  See Joshua 1:8, Proverbs 4:20-24
You can know “all is well” when you stay focused on God’s word instead of on the things going on around you.  Settle it now no matter the circumstances.  Don’t be distracted by the things of this world.  Keep speaking God’s word.  Faith can do anything because God has already done everything!

This is Faith Cabin saying bye for now.  Love, blessings and smiles.
