Mark 5: 25-28
Nothing changes in your life until you begin to speak the Word of God that you believe.
The reality is that in the kingdom of God, we end up seeing what we believe and what we end up saying with our mouth. You want to see good health, you have got to believe it. You have to say it until you start seeing it. We call that the Spirit of Faith. There is what we call the Spirit of Faith and the Law of Faith. 2 Cor 4:13 (TPT)-
We have the same Spirit of faith that is described in the Scriptures when it says, “first I believed, then I spoke in faith.” So, we also first believe then speak in faith. This text explains that we first believe and then we speak in faith. This is called the Spirit of Faith. You want to release the power of God in your life, you have to engage the power of confession.
What unlocks result is the Spirit of Faith. Your words will dominate your life; therefore what do you want to see in your life? Find the word of God that guarantees it and start the confession. Before you ask God to do something, look for the premise of God’s performance of that which you desire, this is the Word of God. So, when you have a need and desire, sit down with the Bible, look for parts that contains what you want, believe it and start to confess it. Nothing changes in your life until you start to say what you believe.
So how does this Spirit of Faith works? You go to the Word of God, meditate on the word until you start to get convictions after which you start to confess it. Keep saying it until you see it. Until you see it, never change your confession. This Spirit of Faith will not support confession of words that are not contained in the scripture. The reason doing it has been hard for you is because you are doing without speaking. You hear the word of God, you believe, you meditate on the word, and you confess from the standpoint of that belief. This is the Spirit of Faith. “The word of God CONCEIVED in the HEART, FORMED by the TONGUE, and SPOKEN out of the MOUTH is creative POWER.” – CHARLES CAPPS. The manifestation of everything you believe begins with your saying it. Before you say it, believe it in your heart. Let the conviction you have be unshakeable.
Matthew 9:29 (TPT)- Then Jesus put his hands over their eyes and said, “You will have what your faith expects!”. Hebrews 11:3 (AMP)- By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible. 2 Cor 4:18 (NLT). What is not visible but creates the visible? Nothing is killing your faith like what you are looking at!
2 Cor 4:18 (NLT)- So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
The reason you haven’t been able to get out of the problem is that you look at the problem too much. Take your eyes away from the trouble, fix your gaze on the Word of God. What faith teaches you is what not to look at. Your problem so far has been where you have been looking at. Don’t depend too much on logic, expert advice and rationalization.
