Maintain Your Confession of Faith!
2 Corinthians 4:13; Hebrews 11:6.
Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Unbelief is not an asset; it is a liability. Faith pleases God but doubt displeases Him because it hinders from receiving from Him. Doubt denies the reality of the existence of God and His ability to meet our needs. The assurance that your confession will leap into being is hinged on your confidence in God, your faith. To have what you say like God had what He said in the beginning, you must speak forth in faith like God did. When you believe a thing, the moment conviction is birthed within you, start speaking forth your conviction. When it comes to seeing the manifestation of your words, you must say only what you believe. When you talk your faith, it will leap into being for you. Don’t talk doubt; speak faith! It is better to refrain from speaking if you won’t speak right in that instance. This is known as the vocabulary of silence. Why? Words are containers. Words create. Speaking the word of faith is how you actually create possibilities and realities consistent with the will of God for your life. You meditate in the Word of God, then you speak what you believe. If you don’t believe in lack, then don’t try to share your experiences with people in a terrible way so you can win their sympathy. Maintain your confession of faith, come what may.
Scriptures say the things that are seen are subject to change but the things that are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18). This simply means that lack or insufficiency can be overwhelmed by abundance, such that you have all sufficiency in all things and abound unto every good work. The life of God can swallow up sicknesses and diseases, whether it is labelled terminal or incurable by medical science. If you focus your attention on unseen things that produce seen realities, the natural will give way to the supernatural and your experiences will be “on earth, as it is in heaven” – heaven on earth. Beloved, don’t trade your conviction away for socialization. Ephesians 4:29 says, “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” Understand your place as a child of God. You are the light of the world. You’ve been sent by God to speak faith to your world and minister grace to people by speaking life to them, not to win their sympathy by speaking like one who has been defeated. You can’t talk like them and help them. You must rise higher and bring them up by speaking the Word of God, the Word of faith which is able to build them up. Talk faith!
SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION): In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that my mouth speaks only faith. No unbelief will come out of my mouth. As I speak my faith, it leaps into being for me in Jesus’ Name!!
Further Meditation: Acts 20:32; James 1:5-8.
