In my life’s experiences, I’ve discovered that God’s Word coming forth from my own lips builds my faith, attracts heavenly intervention, and brings about victory! Glory to God!
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:8, 9 NKJV)
It comes back to the question: “Whose report will you believe?”
I’ve made a decision to value God’s Word in my life more than anyone else’s—more than my own word, more than my loved ones’ words, more than my friends’ words, and more than the words of my extended family members!
Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: “That you may be justified in your words, and may overcome when you are judged.” (Romans 3:4 NKJV)
God and His Word are inseparable because all of God’s power and might is invested in the Words He speaks. His Words are creative. The Words have power in themselves to bring themselves to pass! That’s pretty awesome AND it gives me great confidence, faith, and trust in His Word.
Then said the Lord unto me, “Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten My Word to perform it.” (Jeremiah 1:12 KJV)
For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Heb. 4:12 NKJV)
When I speak God’s Word and teach God’s Word—whether to myself or to others—it attracts all of the power of the Kingdom of God! Hebrews 1:3 tells us that Jesus upholds ALL things by the Word of His power!
Be bold and courageous and begin speaking God’s Word out of YOUR mouth with firm faith and expectation.
