“I believed and therefore I spoke” (II Corinthians 4:13).
When you speak, let the words come out with faith. You will become strong in faith when you keep on, speaking words of faith and when you keep on proclaiming the verses of promise. Yes, the words filled with faith are the strongest on earth.
Those who believe God always speak words of faith, success, and praise, under all situations. Paul, the apostle, writes: “And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak” (II Corinthians 4:13).
There is no necessity to teach the young fish how to swim. When the children are born it is not required to teach them how to breathe. Similarly, the words of faith are not required for people who lead a life of faith. For them, it comes naturally from their hearts. Our Lord God is one who speaks the words of faith. All creations came into being only through His words of faith.
Every day He kept on speaking the words “Let there be.” The sun, the moon and the stars came into being as He spoke these words for six days. Visible and invisible things were also present. The Scripture says, “By faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11:3).
You are the children of God who spoke the words of faith. When the father used such words, is it not necessary for you, His children too, to speak such words? Speaking words of disbelief always is the reason for the defeat of many people.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21). So, speak about life. Speak the words of faith. It not only strengthens you but also helps comfort the hearts of others, rebuild the broken families and bring back the days of prosperity.
Faith is a glorious power which could shake even heaven. Faith possesses the power to create and to do rare and great things. Dear children, throw away the words of disbelief from you and begin to implement the faith. Let springs of faith keep on secreting from your heart.
To meditate: “Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs?” (James 3:11, 12).
