Living By Faith

YOUR VOICE IS YOUR ADDRESS IN THE SPIRIT

Thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. (Daniel 10:12)

 

“The reason the majority of Christians are weak, though they are earnest, is because they have never dared to make a confession of what they are in Christ.” – E.W. Kenyon

 

What is it about your voice that is so important? Scientists tell us that the voiceprint is just as accurate in determining an individual’s identity as his fingerprint. In certain high-security situations, a person must speak, and his voice must be recognized before clearance is given.

It doesn’t take long for your voice to reach heaven and enter the ears of Almighty God, who is the source of your authority as a believer. Heaven responds to your voice. Not only does God respond to the voice of faith, but angels are also activated by your words. In Daniel 10, Daniel’s words brought the answer from heaven, and the angel came to exactly the right address!

If your voice moves heaven, you know it moves mountains. Lift up your voice with the voice of faith and move any mountain that is standing in the way of God’s best for your life!

 

Confession: In my distress I called upon the Lord and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of the hills moved. (Psalm 18: 6-7)

YOUR MOUNTAIN NEEDS TO HEAR YOUR VOICE

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed… he shall have whatsoever he saith. (Mark 11:23)

 

“Any man may be changed by faith no matter how he may be fettered.” – Smith Wigglesworth

 

One day while I was praying and studying, the Holy Spirit began to give me a vision of the possibilities of some great, glorious, marvelous, and wonderful things that God had prepared for my life, but there were some “mountains” between God’s best blessings and me. He said, “If you knew what was on the other side of your mountain, you would move it!”

In Luke 17:6, Jesus uses the illustration of a “sycamine tree.” Someone once joked, “I have identified my problem, and I am sick of mine.” Sometimes things will stay around until you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, and you determine that things must change in your life. Mark 11:23 makes it clear that it is not up to God or someone else to deal with your situation, it’s up to you! Your mountain will obey you! Your mountain needs to hear your voice!

 

Confession: I speak to every mountain that has hindered supernatural increase in my life and command them to move.  I am ready to receive God’s best blessings for me!

THE SPEECH CENTER EXERCISES DOMINION

For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (Matthew 12:37)

 

“The speech center is the dominion center for our lives.” – Mark Hankins

 

A leading neurosurgeon said that researchers have recently discovered that the speech center in the brain exercises dominion over the whole central nervous system. He said that certain parts of the human brain are able to cause different parts of the body to respond to stimuli. The speech center has even greater influence; when the speech center is stimulated, the whole central nervous system responds.

This means that when anyone says, “I am weak,” the speech center sends out the message to the whole body to prepare to be weak. This must be the reason God said, “Let the weak say, I am strong.” (Joel 3:10)

The Message Bible tells us in Matthew 12:37, “Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.”

This may be a new discovery to medical science, but the Bible has revealed this fact for thousands of years. Medical science is finally finding out what the Bible has been saying all along!

 

Confession: I am strong. I am blessed. God’s Word in my mouth gives me life and salvation!

PRISONERS OF WORDS

Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. (Proverbs 6:2)

 

“If you’re not happy with what you have in life, check out what you’ve been saying.” – Kenneth E. Hagin

 

Many people are prisoners of their words; what they say is holding them hostage. Proverbs 6:2 in the Jerusalem Bible says, “…through words of yours you have been entrapped.”  The Basic English version says, “…the sayings of your lips have overcome you.”

James 3 tells us that your tongue will determine the direction and destiny of your life. You are a believer in the Word of God. You must speak what you believe for victory to be yours.

The confession of your lips that grows out of faith in your heart will absolutely defeat the adversary in every combat. When you hold fast to your confession of faith and allow those words to register in your spirit, Satan cannot win!

 

Confession: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.”  (Proverbs 18:21)  I will not be held captive by my words any longer. I will speak the Word of God concerning every circumstance and situation in my life. I am a believer in God’s Word. I have the victory!

NEVER RUN AT YOUR GIANT WITH YOUR MOUTH SHUT!

This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand…that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. (1 Samuel 17:46)

 

“Faith is released by speaking. If you are silent, you lose by default.” – Mark Hankins

 

1 Samuel 17 records the classic story of David and Goliath. The real battle was won before David actually killed Goliath. A war of words had to be won before victory could be consummated. The story went something like this: Goliath said…David said…Goliath said…David said…David ran toward the Philistine…David prevailed over the Philistine. David won the war of words before He won the victory!

The Lord spoke these words to me as a key to killing my giants: “Never run at your giant with your mouth shut!” Before we can receive and do all that God has for us in life, there will be giants that must be conquered. As you may know, some of these giants can be quite persistent. Just keep on running at those giants with your mouth speaking the Word of God. The Word releases God’s power to win in every conflict!

 

Confession: And He hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me. (Isaiah 49:2)
