Saying is Believing
"Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him." Mark 11:23 NASB
Hey everybody! Y'all know I am sincerely apologetic for not being consistent. That is one of the things I am working on…being consistent. And wouldn't you know that consistency goes hand in hand with what I am writing about today! I know everybody remembers being told "Believe only half of what you see and none of you hear" right? Well I have figured out that it has helped to condition us to not to be people of faith (well only the latter half).
Many pastors and gospel singers speak of the Law of Confession. This law states speaking the Word, the Biblical Word of God that is, and confessing it as the Truth and Law–and quite simply believing it! So if you take the famous quote to heart and "believe…none of what you hear" you will most definitely miss out on God's blessings. By not saying and speaking the Word, you are not growing your faith. Saying and thus "hearing" is believing. We must continue to speak it until we do not doubt. The great thing about speaking and saying the Word is that this act within itself has the power to build our faith and to bring forth what we are believing God for! So say it and believe it! For if you believe, as Jesus Himself said–NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU.
"And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you." Matthew 17:20 NASB
