Mark 11:23 KJV
“For verily I say unto you, That WHOSOEVER shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and SHALL NOT DOUBT in his heart, BUT SHALL BELIEVE THAT THOSE THINGS WHICH HE SAITH SHALL COME TO PASS; he shall have WHATSOEVER he saith”
Many believers often wonder why their faith confessions don’t work. They confess until they are blue in the face, yet their words don’t move anything in the spirit realm.
The simple explanation is that they are ignorantly working against a very important spiritual law. Your words carry great power and the quality of your results in life are directly proportional to the truth behind what you say.
For your words to have impact and create your expected realities when you confess, you must avoid lies and falsehood.
According to our Bible verse in study, when you make a faith confession or command, you MUST believe without any DOUBT that YOUR WORDS THAT YOU SAY SHALL COME TO PASS. Only then can you see it happen.
Now if you engage in lying sometimes or regularly, your heart’s capacity to believe will be affected. That is why when you make faith declarations or command things, you’ll find it difficult to believe your own words and thus frustrate the result of your declaration.
Lies kill your faith and hamper spiritual growth. No man can rise above the words of his mouth.
As you speak words daily, you are training your heart to believe but if what your heart is receiving from your mouth are falsehood and exaggeration, you would be creating a defective belief system that hurts you more in the long run.
For this same reason, many believers never truly believe they are saved. Their hearts being trained by unfaithful words, cause their conscience to challenge the authenticity of their “confession unto Salvation” utterance made at New birth.
You may lie to get away with an offence but in all honesty, you are hurting yourself more and actually endangering your own life.
1 Peter 3:10
“Whoever desires to love life and see good days,
let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; (lies)”
In essence, the Apostle Peter equates speaking lies with evil. Just as a lie is a reversal of the truth, EVIL is a reversal of your right to LIVE.
As you start practicing speaking the truth, it may take a little while but, you’ll discover you are growing stronger spiritually even as your faith starts developing. God’s words come to pass because God is truth and in Him is no lie.
Satan’s words come to pass ONLY WHEN he can cause his lies to enter the earth atmosphere using the mouth of a child of God through lying.
The Grace of God is upon you today to speak the truth in all circumstances. If you find yourself in a lie, admit it to yourself and if possible, confess / apologize to the person you lied to. Tell God about it and ask for Grace not to repeat it. Continue this way until you find yourself comfortable with speaking the truth often. Your faith will soar on the wings of Divine Grace.
May you be truly blessed my dearly beloved and may God’s light shine within your heart even as you shine within mine.
