If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will SAY to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. (Mt 17:20b, emphasis added)
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. (Rom 10:8-9)
These verses teach us that one consequence of faith is words. Our faith encourages and inspires us to speak to our situation (circumstances) and command them according to the Word of God. In Romans 10, we’re reminded that the word of faith is in our mouths and our hearts. The passage then proceeds to elaborate on the “word of faith” message.
Faith says: “I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and that God raised Him from the dead; and therefore I am saved.” This means that in ANY trial, trouble, or evil circumstance in our lives, we can calmly and peacefully expect Jesus to:
- deliver us,
- protect us,
- heal us, and
- meet our every need.
Study the Bible and locate passages of Scripture that you may speak into your situation with a faith-filled heart. Then wait in hope and expectation as God works on your behalf.
