Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6)
“No man can doubt when he learns to shout!” – Smith Wigglesworth
The spirit of faith will often cause a person to look as foolish as Naaman did, when the prophet Elisha told him to dip seven times in the muddy Jordan River (II Kings 5:14). What God required of Naaman for his healing from leprosy was not difficult, but it seemed too foolish. Naaman’s reasoning almost made him miss his miracle. He finally acted on the prophet’s word and was totally healed!
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.” (I Corinthians 1:27)
In Romans 4:17, we read of Abraham: “I have made thee a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.” Smith Wigglesworth said, “You must learn to take the victory and shout in the face of the devil, ‘It is done!’”
Confession: I will shout, “It is done!” in the face of the devil and take my victory. It is not by my might, but by the Spirit of God that I will see my miracle come to pass.
