Whosoever shall say…he shall have whatsoever he saith. (Mark 11:23)
“Effective communication must involve both seeing and saying.” -Mark Hankins
Human speech is a characteristic of man made in the image of God. We can see from Genesis 1 that God said and God saw. Sound came before sight in the order of this world’s creation. God said and God saw. Everything we can see was made from sound. Sound changes sight. Faith has a certain sound. As we speak the word of faith, things change in our lives.
In the beginning, a language existed that perfectly expressed the essence of all possible things. The language spoken in the Garden of Eden must have been such a language. Today, in the language of the Gospel, there is even greater power available. God has redeemed us by the blood of Jesus and has given us the language of redemption in Christ Jesus. God has restored all power to us “in Christ.” It is a language of authority that will move mountains as Jesus said in Mark 11:23. It is a language of healing that Paul spoke in Acts 14:7-10. It is a language of love that Paul described in 1Corinthians13. It is the perfect language.
Confession: I am making a different sound–the sound of faith. The scenery of my life is changing because I walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
