Living By Faith


And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)

The reason words will move a mountain is because mountains are made by words.
Mark Hankins

The Time Magazine issue of February 19, 1996, had an article that caught my attention. The article, “What’s Hiding in the Quarks,” tells about the discovery of quarks that was made at the giant Tevatron accelerator at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago.

Physicists coined the term, “Quarks” in 1994 to describe what they thought were the tiniest, most fundamental building blocks of matter. After further study, the scientists discovered that quarks may not be the most basic units of matter after all!

What are quarks made of? Many scientists are of the opinion that quarks are made of sound waves. I believe that is correct because it confirms what the Bible teaches. In Genesis, the phrase “And God said” is repeated over and over again. “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth…For He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.” (Psalm 33:6-9)

Confession: Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God. (Hebrews 11:3)

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)

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!

When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
(Luke 18:8)

If your faith isn’t talking, it isn’t working. Faith always has a voice.
Mark Hankins

Jesus is looking for faith. Your faith is expressed through your words. The spoken Word of God gives the life of God to all who believe and speak. We hold fast our confession of faith according to Hebrews 4:14 (AMP): Inasmuch then as we have a great High Priest Who has [already] ascended and passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession [of faith in Him].

We live by faith, and we walk by faith. We know all things are possible to those who believe. It takes faith to obey God and to please Him. The Word of faith is not such a difficult thing. The Gospel is called the Word of faith in Romans 10:8. The Word is near you; salvation is near you; healing is near you, and blessing is near you. It is all as near as your mouth and your heart!

Confession: I have the spirit of faith. I believe and I speak. I have overcoming faith. I have mountain-moving faith. I have a measure of the God-kind of faith, and it’s framing my world with blessing, healing, victory, and prosperity!

The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach. (Romans 10:8)

The vocabulary of salvation releases the power of God!
Mark Hankins

I really like the way the Message Bible reads in Romans 10:8-10: “This is the core of our preaching. Say the welcoming word to God – ‘Jesus is my Master’ – embracing body and soul, God’s work of doing in us what He did in raising Jesus from the dead.” I especially like the phrase, “Say the welcoming word to God.” Acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ and all He has done for you. Dare to open the door to the supernatural by believing and speaking. God wants to work for you; He just needs you to open the door. Say it out loud. Hold fast to your confession of faith. Win the war of words. God has given us all the ammunition we need!

Confession: I believe in my heart that God the Father raised Jesus from the dead, and I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord. I have been born again. God is my very own Father, and I am His very own child. I am a new creature in Christ Jesus. Old things are passed away; behold, all things are new. Jesus is my Master! (Romans 10:9-10; 8:14-15, 2 Corinthians 5:17)
